-Chris


Trevino was working as a club pro before he went on tour. One day Floyd came to town and Trevino went out to the parking lot to meet him. Trevino took Floyds bag and shoes, which he cleaned. Floyd was there to play a big money match with a guy he didn't know.

Finally Floyd says "who am i playing?". Trevino says "me". Floyd "You? What do you do?". Trevino " I'm the cart man, bag man and pro."

Floyd lost the first two days. On the last day he shot 63, beating Lee by a shot, and said " I can find muuuuch easier games than this. I have had enough. "

I like it when Lee gets out on tour and the other players say “Raymond told us about you”...
Lee says “what did he say?”
The responded, “ There’s a little Mexican guy from Texas you guys are gonna have to make a little room for.”

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

There was no secret, guys had more cohones back then and would stare guys in the eye like a man would and take you down. Now you make a final pairing in a major and your guaranteed a lifetime of cash even if you finish second or third. Thats why Jack and Tiger stand above the rest. they were ruthless and played for trophies not for $. Trevino was a degenerate gambler on the course with a huge chip on his shoulder.he literally begged Jack to play for side action on tour when they were paired together. he was caught on film telling Jack "dare me to hit this shot jack" thats who he was and thats why he succeeded

I spoke to Ray Floyd years ago at Shinnecock ( hes a lifetime member there) and the gambling stories he had were insane. the 70s were wild times on tour. he told me he and trevino made more $ some weeks in the practice rounds then in earnings and they were finishing in the the top 10 those weeks

Finally got the chance to watch the interview. Interesting that he mentioned carrying a 1 iron. He has admitted in the past how much he struggled with long irons. Just imagine how scary he would be with hybrids.

He also didn't mention how pissed off he was at the 17th on the last day against Jacklin and Nicklaus. He had basically given up, even told Jacklin that he was done,  and hit a give up shot from behind the 17th that went in the hole. He was still pissed about being distracted on the tee and didn't even celebrate when it went in.

Raymond told you the exact truth about those days. Him and my old man were friends. Those guys would start sliding into town the week before the Old Kemper Open and there were some matches at my old man's course. Saw Trevino play there too. Watched him and Raymond like a Hawk especially with the short game. Learned a lot of my short game tricks watching those 2 and some of the other old hustlers. Trevino actually told my old man that he was putting on a short game clinic the next week on the Monday before the Kemper and be sure to take me which my old man did. I observed and learned a lot which has served me well

bit to be said for the way it was played in the old days versus today ... you had to win more to make more/make a living, unlike today where one 2nd place finish guarantees you an enormous pay check ... only interaction i ever had with floyd was at the 1st shoal creek pga when i went up to him as he's putting his gear in his car and asked for his autograph, to go along with the dozens of others i already had ... guy said give me a minute and turned and signed ... probably had signed hundreds that day, though he didn't finish all that well, but he took the time to sign for another complete stranger ...

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.


Greg
He's nothing compared to Norman....Total ******!.......LOL

In the most recent Golf Digest, Frank Nobilo says "Who is to say that Trevino's swing isn't the best way to do it?  Imagine what he could have done if hybrids were available then."
In some circles he gets credit for inventing the hybrid as we know it today. I read somewhere that he took either a 5 wood or 6 wood (real wood) and had a club craftsman cut the head down and shape it different plus move some weight around. I have read that story somewhere and I think it was on WRX

It is amazing how many times Trevino felt he lost the championship but somehow pulled off the win.

Great player and a great raconteur.

Someone should just do an interview with Trevino just telling golf stories.

bit to be said for the way it was played in the old days versus today ... you had to win more to make more/make a living, unlike today where one 2nd place finish guarantees you an enormous pay check ... only interaction i ever had with floyd was at the 1st shoal creek pga when i went up to him as he's putting his gear in his car and asked for his autograph, to go along with the dozens of others i already had ... guy said give me a minute and turned and signed ... probably had signed hundreds that day, though he didn't finish all that well, but he took the time to sign for another complete stranger ...

Not only did you have to win more to make a good living.  He had to do it over and over. Trevino made and lost a few fortunes thanks to his biz manager and several Claudias, etc.

Trevino and Palmer just have the right manly voices. Tiger and Jack..not so much..like listening to Mike Tyson...guy's taking out grown ups with one punch and sounding like a high school kid with his voice not broken yet

It’s amazing Jacklins gorgeous swing fell apart after this...
As Trevino sad, he was world class...
But the third round barrage from Trevino and the 71st miracle destroyed Tony...he never recovered...
But dang did he have a beautiful swing...

La Cita CC in Titusville - a Trevino design.

Grand opening ceremony back in mid 80's and he's there. And a man goes into full arrest.

As crew arrived a huge crowd was blocking access to the patient and without missing a beat LT spoke out and said "Everyone move back now. Let's let these men go to work." And then followed it up "If you fellas need anything just let me know." (Paraphrased - was a little busy at the time)

It was like the parting of the Red Sea. He had a command or in-charge presence. I have a feeling this type of personality could easily be interpreted as being a PITA. May be way off. But I had a good impression considering he was calm, cool and in-charge under far less than ideal circumstances.
