Kim Jong-il dies: the life of the North Korean dictator and 'Dear Leader'

He supposedly penned operas, had a photographic memory, produced movies and was said to have shot 11 holes-in-one on the first round of golf he ever played.

its sad how politics come into interfering the pursuit of sports excellence.

if not for this, one can imagine how many majors he could have won

They did not say anything about the course what. Who knows, maybe the 'golf course' he played was actually 18 putting mats??

Wow What a Face

World’s greatest golfer dies. Farewell Kim Jong Il

"North Korean golfing legend (and oppressive dictator) Kim Jong Il passed away over the weekend. He was just 69 years old, but laid claim to golfing skills that would make greats like Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and Walter Hagen weep with envy.

Back in 1994, the man set a record that is likely to stand forever. Playing his first round of golf on a regulation, PGA-style, 18-hole course, Kim Jong Il scored 11 holes-in-one while he carded a stunning 38 UNDER par. Seventeen bodyguards were on hand to witness and attest the score. "

Yes I do Second the motion.

I'm thinking his Ace could be done with some help from his bodyguard's

North Korean leaders always tell "tales of ridiculousness" to make them look they are Super-Man.

In order to be a Dear Leader, he must score hole-in-ones easily, by whatever means.

Not Lilliput but regulation course, of course.
At 38-under he is a +38, and that was his first try at playing on the course; he would have improved to ace 17-18 holes by now. Just think how many strokes he would have to give us if he joined our games! Basketball

We just have to make sure his bodyguards don't follow...

Whoa! He's gone to play golf somewhere in the netherworld. You don't want to join him or invite him over for a game do you?

Haha, hypothetical only. Just the same as the stats claimed by their media. Did you see the one where they claimed their soccer team beat Brazil to win the World cup? drunken

Saw on Channelnewsasia that a few members of the UN council refused to observe the 1 minute of silence demanded by their rep...that doesn't sound right.

You mean the bunker is not the hole... damn... no wonder I always score Hole-on-ones as well.

Maybe we should all assume bunkers as holes, that would make our scores comparable to the "world's greatest golfer" Laughing

If he aces 17-18 holes per game. Give people strokes also useless unless his opponent can match the aces.
