11 holes in one in first round?: I can't even do that on the putt putt.

Did anyone check those balls to see if they had military "Surface to Air Missle" technology enbedded in them. It all seems a little "Bonds" to me!! "Bonds"- I just made up this slang word for somthing that seems...Corrupt, Fishey, Wrong, Full of Poo-Poo....Ect...Ect. Think of it as a gift.

Um. Hello? This is pathetic propaganda from North Korea's resident insane dictator. Why is this post-worthy? That "11 holes-in-one on the first time he'd played" sounds a lot like the write-up of Francisco D'Artagne or whatever his name was from 'Atlas Shrugged'- that character's inherent superiority over other living things was emphasized by, in part, his ability to hit a homerun the first time he played baseball. "Atlast Shrugged" is of course the bible of the insane right-wing hyper-conservative nutjobs...

Why am I not surprised Kim Jong Il knows the names, addresses and phone numbers of his senior people? I assume he knows where exactly to go when they have to be rounded up.

In North Korea, hole in one shoots you.

I don't know how it is in North Korea, but here in the States, I've never seen 11 par 3's on an 18 hole course. I think that this story is a bunch of jibberish.

I don't think North Korea's packed with 7,500 yard golf resorts, courses and clubs.

Why is this post-worthy? I think it's funny enough to be worth noting. It isn't every day that despotic tyrants use their iron grip over a country to claim impossible sports achievements. I wonder if there's a translation of Guinness Book of World Records in North Korea with page after page of his achievements.

Yeah, if this doesn't make your day, you might be taking life a little too seriously. I could spend hours imagining the idiots scrambling around over the horizon to kick the ball into the hole before Master K shows up on the green in some pimped-out golf cart that costs 1000x the average annual household income in his Workers Paradise.

Kim Jong Il : Scrambling Workers :: Monty Burns : Smithers, eh? It is rather unfortunate that a man of such great talent, intellect, and ability, not to mention memory, can't figure out a way to prevent his adoring populous from a slow painful death from starvation. i looked up his bio , doesnt even mention he plays golf , does like m. jordan and would watch bulls games on sattelite tv , wonder if he pays for it , hmmm .... he does have 2000 video tapes . must be lonely at the top , lol . Um, huh? Babelfish, hope me!

I think he was actually playing on that course from the Progressive tv ad, the one with the 12 foot holes.

Only someone who has never tried to swing a club would be capable of believing this feat possible. This shit cracks me up. I bet old ill kim can't even drive the green on a par 3. North Koreans must be so proud.

I'm shocked any of you could doubt this. It wouldn't be too hard, considering he probably had slave labor there to make sure it went in ( on pain of death if it didn't). I guess we should be amazed he didn't get 18 holes in one. Along wfrazerjr's post, one has to wonder if he didn't "fire his caddy" after every non hole in one.

Consequently, there are thousands of North Koreans who can attest to Kim's prowess at peasant hunting...get it? Pheasant...peasant...ah, hell with it.
