Lee Trevino won over golf fans with not only his play on the course but also his humor and outgoing personality. Nicknamed the “Merry Mex”, Trevino captured 29 PGA Tour events and six major titles during his illustrious career, including two US Opens (1968, 1971), two PGA Championships (1974, 1984) and two Open Championships (1971, 1972). Trevino was the leading money winner on the PGA Tour in 1970 and was honored as the PGA Player of the Year in 1971. He also five times won the Vardon Trophy for the lowest scoring average in 1970, 1971, 1972 1974 and 1980.

Born on December 1, 1939 in Garland, Texas, Trevino started caddying at a young age at the Dallas Athletic Club and stopped going to school when he was 14 to become a full-time caddie. As one of the perks, he was able to practice after work. He served in the Marine Corps for four years starting at the age of 17 and competed in Armed Forces golf tournaments in Asia. After his time with the Marines, Trevino worked in El Paso, Texas as a club pro, during which time he qualified for the 1966 U.S. Open. After qualifying again in 1967 and earning his tour card for the remainder of the season, Trevino was named by Golf Digest as Rookie of the Year. He won his first major the next year in 1968 when he captured the U.S. Open, besting Jack Nicklaus.

In international play, Trevino represented the United States at six Ryder Cups in addition to serving as captain in 1985. At the age of 50, Trevino moved to the Champions Tour, where he won 29 tournaments, ranking third-all time and trailing only Hale Irwin and Bernhard Langer. He was named the tour’s Rookie of the Year in 1990 and was the recipient of the Jack Nicklaus Trophy three times, Byron Nelson Award three times and Arnold Palmer Award twice. In 1981, he became a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame. Off the course, Trevino worked for NBC Sports as a golf analyst from 1983-1989.
