World Golf Hall of Famer and world-class swordsman (with a golf club, that is) Chi Chi Rodriguez is celebrating his 79th birthday today.
Fast forward to the 1:30 mark below to see the famous sword dance:
Rodriguez, a proud Puerto Rican, turned professional in 1960. Always a colorful character, Rodriguez also had a lot of flash with his game. He was an eight-time winner on the PGA Tour and racked up 22 victories on the Champions Tour, including the 1987 Senior PGA Championship.
More recently, you may remember a Rodriguez blooper, where he took the "Big Break" glass break challenge and, well, it backfired with an unfortunate ricochet.
