Golf is sometimes known as a “rich man’s sport,” so Juan Antonio “Chi Chi” Rodriguez has the odds stacked against him right from the start. Born in Puerto Rico, where his father earned just $18 a week as a laborer, Rodriguez got his first job as a caddy, and before long he had taught himself to play golf and was breaking par before he was a teenager. He turned pro in 1960, and although he only won eight times on the PGA Tour he was one of the most popular players on the circuit because of his fun-loving personality and signature “toreador dance” move every time he made a big putt. Although he rarely plays competitive golf anymore, his total of 22 Champions Tour victories ranks him up near the top of the list. He now stays active with his Chi Chi Rodriguez Youth Foundation to help troubled kids.
