Chi Chi Rodriguez, the 74 year old Puerto Rican golf legend, and his wife were robbed of property worth $500,000. Chi Chi Rodriguez and his wife were at their golf resort home when robbers entered this morning, taking a half million dollars worth of jewelry, keepsakes and other property.
Word on the street says Chi Chi Rodriguez and his wife were not injured. While bloggers are happy to hear nobody was hurt, we can only imagine how Chi Chi Rodriguez and his wife felt when robbers broke in during the wee hours of the morning.
USA Today reports Chi Chi Rodriguez was a PGA Tour winner with style. He used to act like a matador with his putter, pretending it was a sword. Legend says Chi Chi Rodriguez discovered golf at age 7 when he wanted onto a course in Puerto Rico. Rumor says he first practiced golf by using a tin can as a ball and the limb of a guava tree as a golf club.
