In what must rank as one of the major sports surprises of the year, accolades are rolling in for Kim Jong Il in the wake of his recent passing. Apparently even top ranking pros were aware of it. Kim was probably the greatest golfer who ever lived. He must have been a "natural", since he had no tournament experience that I am aware of.

Check out the story for some of the laudatory comments.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il's death was noted on Twitter as an epic loss to golf, with hundreds recalling the Stalinist state media's reports of Kim's 11 holes-in-one in a single round in 1994.

Reports hailed Kim's 38-under par 34 over 18 holes at the 7,700-yard Pyongyang Golf Course in his first try at golf, a feat watched purportedly by 17 security guards protecting the man hailed as "Dear Leader."
