Must See Video: Chi Chi Takes One In The...

And just in case you were wondering if he's still Chi Chi Rodriguez, master of the one-liner, Chi Chi he reels off two brilliant one liners immediately after the embarrassing incident.

This is an outake from his Big Break NFL cameo airing Tuesday, November 19th, courtesy of Golf Channel:

And our crew at has the requisite GIF for your files.

"I should've yelled TWO!"...LOL great way to start the day!

On a more serious matter...I can not believe that hasn't happened in the past.

Good to see Cheech is still goin strong and looking good....surprised he doesn't hang around the Champs. Tour occasionally, he was one of its most popular players EVAH

Cheech was a wonder to watch, in his prime and his early years on the Senior Tour as well.
Agree NLUFS&TC. If you watched the early Skills Challenge you might remember he won the "Trouble Shot" playing it both ways, a fade and a draw, when others struggled to even hit the green.

That dumb woman who keeps asking ''Are you OK?'' Darn lady, what do you think? Why do you think he is not answering?

Chi is a real ambassador, and I love that LeeT said if Chi was 130 out, he would try and work a little 7 in, instead of just hitting a stock 9.....

Also, the glass deal is one of the reasons I quit watching BB a couple of seasons ago, lee FFing to the good looking ladies, and FFing thru a final.

D. Mac.... yes, I remember that as well.

Maybe they should put padding on the metal frame next time to prevent catastrophic recoil . . . ;-)

I think it hit his leg more than anything else, if that had hit him in the nuts he would have been on the ground gasping for air.

I got hit in an oil field accident about where he was- in the leg right by my crotch, and I passed out- all the blood rushed to the wound.

I quit that day after my shift. I had told the driller that he was running the pipe too fast, and that led to the accident. a hole.

always wondered why they make the frame flat faced so that direct shot go directly back at the golfer...

awhile back there was a guy using driver from the deck in the glass breaking segment, those shots made me wonder why the flat frame existed...45 degree bevel to a corner facing the golfer makes much more sense

Chi Chi once said that the PGA commisioner never says hi to him...anyone know why ?

Cheech looks like a lock for #1 on some future GC "Top Ten" show - "Top Ten Gonad-Threatening Senior Golfer Injuries". With any luck Arnie, Gary and Jack won't let Chi Chi take the trophy without a fight.
@d: You are referring to The Fog...aka Kelly Murray who was usually more accurate with a driver/wood than any of his other clubs (exaggerating a little bit). A character if there ever was one.

I got an up close look back in 1989 when I caddied in the same group as Kelly. Armed with Tour Balata100's and two Honma drivers (one was 43" and good for 300yds & in play, the other was just freaking scary big and stiff IIRC) this day NO ONE has driven it in places that he was finding on my home course. His preferred trajectory was described by my player as "ballistic" and "he hits it OVER the wind".

Good times!

"Hey Doc, any way you can ease the pain but keep the swelling?"

Cheech has one of the top 2 or 3 pair of hands even! His wedge and Sand play was second to no one in his prime. Played many around with him and he always seemed to hit that 'one shot' you had never seen before. The second shot to the 72nd hole at the Senior Open - having to make a 3 to tie Nicklaus - was one of the best ever! He hit every shot like there was a tree in front of him - he either cut it or drew it EVERY time -- no straight shots for the Cheech.
