Champion Chi-Chi Rodriguez's Personal 1991 Las Vegas Senior Classic Crystal Winner's Trophy


Chi Chi's 19th Senior PGA Tour victory represented a successful title defense at the 1991 Las Vegas Senior Classic hosted by Desert Inn Country Club. Rodriguez's same formula worked, carding a 12-under par for the second straight year - this time good for a comfortable three stroke lead over runner-up Walt Zembriski. Chi Chi's wielded his sword on additional occasions on that final round Sunday, scoring a 66 and taking home the prized multi-tiered cut glass Wedgewood crystal trophy.

From The Chi Chi Rodriguez Collection comes Chi-Chi Rodriguez's Personal 1991 Las Vegas Senior Classic Crystal Winner's Trophy, an item from the proud Puerta Rican's trailblazing World Golf Hall of Fame career. Humble beginnings paved the way for 37 professional wins including two Senior Major Championships as well as a 1973 Ryder Cup appearance for the United States team. Avid baseball fan Juan "Chi Chi" Rodriguez got his nickname from Puerto Rican baseball player Chi Chi Flores. Our consignor John Foley has a working relationship with Chi Chi and is helping the golfer with his estate - much of which has traveled many miles to arrive in the continental states. John mentioned that when he went out to lunch with Chi Chi recently, Rodriguez was full of stories and Chi Chi's face lit up when asked to sign a couple of items for John's young daughter. After all, children have always been the main focus of his extensive philanthropic efforts. A signed letter of provenance from John Foley comes with this lot. 14.5 tall
