Lee is a class act and doesn't hold any punches back.  One of my favorite story tellers.  Tells it like it is.

I spent quite a bit of time around Lee when I was the pro at La Costa in the late '80's and Lee was given a membership.  He's great when the cameras were on, not quite the same when they weren't.  He was a total PITA for our superintendent.  Thankfully he moved to the desert.

LT was one of the all-time greats. Period. Six majors....not many guys can say that.

Plus, any guy who says in an interview, "I know people in Dallas. Trust me....Oswald didn't act alone" is 100% right-on.

Trevino must be up there at the guy who has the biggest difference between his on course persona and his off. Heard a lot of people mention now that he is a totally different person.

It's actually the R&A that produced these, Chronicles of a Champion Golfer. They have had some pretty interesting episodes. The latest batch which included Trevino came out around The Open this year. Hopefully, they will have more to be released next year.

Friend of mine marshaled the 5th tee at Medinah during the 2012 Ryder Cup.  They had a pro-am day earlier in the week where team members were paired with celebrities and past Ryder Cup captains.  He said everyone was great except Trevino.  Trevino, he said, was verbally abusing his caddy.  Said it was not part of the act, just that Trevino was acting like a total db.

Golf Digest did a feature many years ago about professional golfers who were totally different than their image.  Trevino was number one for golfers you would think you would like if you got to know him, but wouldn't.

I've got no dog in this fight.  I loved watching Trevino play golf and enjoy his stories.

Absolutely correct very similar to Gary Player. Both two personalities 1. Camera on 2. Camera off. Both insufferable and arrogant in their prime years, now just pains in their senior years.

I知 not speaking from one meeting but multiple times over the years all over the world.

Trevino always reminded me of Hogan as a golfer- self taught and self assured once he figured the game out on his own terms.   I have read the public /private persona stories and feel they are likely true for the most part.  Hogan as well could be gruff and surly when he felt like it.  Considering where they both started and the eras in which they played they had many similar challenges to overcome.  But Trevino being Hispanic in a white dominated sport had to cope with different hurdles that only other minorities faced.  To his credit he developed his joking, chattering golf character in public to disarm many critics but it must have been draining to keep up the act.  His 1984 PGA win after the lightening damage is one of the great wins the game.  He is to me one of the all time great competitors in golf.

Lee knew the secret to taking down the game's top player; something the guys in Tiger's time never figured out.

I enjoy his stories.  Having never met him I guess I can't say how he is off camera.

He didn't hang around with other players after the round was over. Ever. He was very poor growing up, dirt floors and frequently hungry. No father around. I don't think he ever felt comfortable socially in the world of golf.

He skipped the Masters in his prime, once saying he didn't count it as a major. I don't know what exactly happened there but as a minority i think he might have felt people looking down their noses at him.

He admitted once that if he hadn't joined the Marines he probably would have wound up in jail. Very intense, private guy who would put on a good act when the lights were on.

Nicklaus said in his autobiography that Trevino was the toughest competitor he ever faced.

Absolutely correct very similar to Gary Player. Both two personalities 1. Camera on 2. Camera off. Both insufferable and arrogant in their prime years, now just pains in their senior years.

I'm not speaking from one meeting but multiple times over the years all over the world.

Not to steal the thread, but to be truly Great at a sport, don't you have to be arrogant?

Yes, I believe you do. The best always have it.  They may try to fake otherwise in an effort to be polite and cordial, but it's still there.

Remember Nicklaus in the 90s?  Jack didn't lose his arrogance until sometime around when he had his hip replaced and finally acknowledged that his time had passed.  He became much more likeable without that edginess, but the arrogance (cockiness, irrational self-belief, grandiosity, etc.) is part of what keep him competitive well past his physical prime.  

Michael Jordan is another one...

Lee is a class act and doesn't hold any punches back.  One of my favorite story tellers.  Tells it like it is.

Haha.. no.. no he's not.  He is the reason I play golf though.  He is also the reason I believe in the saying you should never meet your heroes.

I spent quite a bit of time around Lee when I was the pro at La Costa in the late '80's and Lee was given a membership.  He's great when the cameras were on, not quite the same when they weren't.  He was a total PITA for our superintendent.  Thankfully he moved to the desert.

Nice to see someone tells it like it is.

Trevino was/is ... a JERK.

Trevino must be up there at the guy who has the biggest difference between his on course persona and his off. Heard a lot of people mention now that he is a totally different person.

Trevino is a jerk on the course but nice off of it?
