European Tour pro can memorize an entire deck of cards, would be a hoot at kids' parties

In 2005, Edoardo Molinari became the first (and still, only) Italian to win the U.S. Amateur. We're guessing he's also probably the only champ capable of remembering every name on the coveted Havemeyer Trophy going all the way back to 1895.

And it's something he shows off from time to time by memorizing an entire deck of cards. Check it out:
