Chi Chi Rodriguez’s Puerto Rican Home Robbed

Three armed men robbed famed Puerto Rican golfer Juan Antonio "Chi Chi" Rodriguez of about $500,000 worth of jewelry, watches and other personal items in his home early Wednesday, police said.

The crime occurred about 1:30 a.m. when the robbers broke into the golfer’s home at El Lagado Resort in the southern Puerto Rican city of Guayama, police spokesman Wilson Porrata said. The robbers tied Rodriguez up before making off with the merchandise, Porrata said in a statement. Rodriguez, 74, and his wife were not injured.

Rodriguez had the first of his eight PGA Tour wins in 1963.

Glad no one was harmed, and hopefully justice will be served and Chi Chi can jam a 9 iron up the asses of the guys who did this.

    Im glad the golf world didn’t lose a great icon in this. I bet they find the gringos that did it though, Puerto Rico is not a huge island.
