The greatest golfer ever to swing a club ... really!

Jack Nicklaus? Nope. Ben Hogan? Nah! Tiger Woods? Yawn!

You're way off. The greatest golfer ever in the history of the game is the man who, upon playing the first round of his life, shot 11 holes-in-one.

Yes, eleven, friends! It's all right here in this article on the 65th birthday of that golf god, North Korean leader Kim Jong Il:
Outside of North Korea Kim is seen as man with a bouffant hair-do, drab jumpsuit and platform shoes who has done little to help his starving people and let the country's industry stagnate.

Like his father, he has constructed a cult of personality around him.

Long groomed by his father, state founder Kim Il-sung, he gradually tightened his hold on power after the elder Kim died of a heart attack in 1994 in the midst of an earlier crisis over North Korea's nuclear program.

The younger Kim declined to assume the title of president, instead designating his father "eternal president" and opting to rule as chairman of the National Defense Commission and head of the ruling party.

North Korea's official media has said flowers come into bloom when he appears and rainbows fill the sky on his birthday.

He is, it is said, a man who pilots jet fighters -- even though he travels by land for his infrequent trips abroad.

He has also penned operas, produced movies and accomplished a feat unmatched in the annals of professional golf, shooting 11 holes-in-one during the first round he ever played.

If you can't believe Reuters then who can you believe?
