Alumni Leadership Speaker Series – An Evening with Lee Trevino

Lee Trevino

Professional golfer and father of Daniel ’11

Lee Trevino is regarded as one of the greatest players in golf history. Trevino grew up as a caddy in the Dallas area, and at 17 years old, he joined the U.S. Marine Corps.

Throughout his service, Trevino continued playing and, upon his return, became an assistant groundskeeper at a local course. His first big success came at the 1967 U.S. Open, where he finished in fifth place and later went on to win the U.S. Open in 1968 and 1971. During his career, Trevino won 29 times on the PGA Tour, including six majors, and became the first player to win the U.S., British and Canadian opens in a single year.

In 1984, Trevino rallied to win the PGA Championship, his sixth and final major. Trevino was elected to the American Golf Hall of Fame and the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1981 and has designed golf courses in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Taiwan, Vietnam, Indonesia and Mexico.

Trevino is the father of six children, including Daniel '11, and has been living in Dallas with his wife Claudia for the last 25 years.
