American golfer

Completely self-taught, Lee Trevino's unorthodox swing has made golf pros shudder throughout his career. With a wide stance and a closed club face, he drives through the ball with a flat baseball-type swing. By the standards of traditional golf, he does everything wrong, which somehow turns out right. Trevino, who has long shunned golf instructors, once told the San Antonio Express-News, "I'll hire [an instructor] when I find one who can beat me." Over his career, which has spanned more than three decades, Trevino has found little need for any advice. Known as the Merry Mex for his nonstop chatting around the course, Trevino is an exceptional golfer as well as a favorite of galleries wherever he plays.

In 1969, Lee Trevino won the Amana Open Golf Tournament in Iowa City Iowa. It was a one day tournamnet. My husband was a high school student at the time and a big fan of Lee Trevino. He managed to get Mr. Trevino's autograph that day. He would like to document the exact date of the Tournament which he remembers to be some time in the Spring of 1969. Can anybody fill in the details of that tournament?
