Lee Trevino's About

[]

Lee Trevino is one of the most accomplished professional golfers in the United States. He grew up in abysmal poverty and had a terrible childhood. He became a caddy since he was unable to attend school on a regular basis. As a caddie, he was able to observe several experts at work while simultaneously practicing his golf skills. He quickly advanced from being a caddy to playing golf as a US Marine and a hustler betting on his golf shots to becoming a successful rookie professional golfer. His first victory came at Oakhill in the US Open. In the early 1970s, he had his best year, winning the Canadian Open and the British Open in a matter of days after winning the US Open for the second time. Six major championships are among his 29 career victories. He is one of only four golfers to have won the U.S. Open, The Open Championship (the British Open), and the PGA Championship on two occasions. The only major championship he didn't win was the Augusta Masters, which he avoided on several occasions because he believed his style would never win there. He was a recluse off the golf course, but on it, he was a gregarious and witty chatterbox. He was dubbed "the Merry Mex" and "Supermex" by many Mexican Americans as a symbol of hope and success.
