Lee Trevino Biography
Caddie Shack Golfer, Turns Professional, Chronology, A Year And A Career To Remember, Joins The SeniorsCONTACT INFORMATION, SELECTED WRITINGS BY TREVINO:
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.
