Such are the birthday greetings that appear on your facebook page when you're sweet and whimsical... and Japan's top-ranked professional golfer. ~ Then there was this:

"おめでとぉ(*´∀`*) Happy Birthday"!! r u 20?"

No, not yet. Ryo Ishikawa turns 19 today... which is hard to believe when you consider how much he's accomplished. True, Ryo started to rack up the records early:

2007 - became the youngest winner on the men's Japan Golf Tour at 15 (Munsingwear Open KSB Cup)

2008 - bacame the youngest player ever to reach the top 100 of the Official World Golf Rankings

2009 - bacame the youngest player ever to reach the top 50 of the Official World Golf Rankings

2010 - carded the lowest score ever on any major golf tour, a 58, at The Crowns a Japan Golf Tour event.

Those are just a few of the precocious prizes the bashful prince has claimed in less than two decades on earth. As one fan said:

"Happy Birthday Ryo!!! Hope you have a great year!!!"
