SHARE Chi Chi Rodriguez and wife tied up, robbed

Chi Chi Rodriguez, arguably the golfer with the most panache ever, was robbed of property worth about $500,000 at his Puerto Rico home this morning.

The 74-year-old Rodriguez and his wife were awoken by masked men around 1:45 a.m. and tied up inside their apartment, according to Maria Morales, the golfer’s publicist.

The couple was not hurt, but “a little shaken up.”

Rodriguez is known for his post-putt celebrations and showmanship. He won eight PGA tournaments and 22 senior tour events.
