Cops: Golfer Chi Chi Rodriguez robbed of $500 K in goods

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.

    I knew Chi Chi when we both worked for the Dorado Beach Hotel ,bk in the 1960s. We played poker and shot pool together. He was always a real nice guy, and down to earth. Soooooooo many ounks on this site that prey on other peoples bad fortune. Very SAD........ B
