Lee Trevino has earned his net worth as a professional golfer who has won six major championships and he considered an icon for Mexican Americans. He has been nicknamed The Merry Mex and Supermex, Lee was born on December 1, 1939 in Dallas, Texas. As a child he spent most of his time working in the cotton fields to earn money for his family and he occasionally attended school. His uncle gave him a few golf balls and a club and Lee would sneak into a nearby country club to practice. Later he became a full-time caddy at the Dallas Athletic Club. He joined the U.S. Marine Corps when he was 17 and served for four years. He played golf while he was enlisted at Armed Forces golf events in Asia. Fellow soldier Orville Moody who was a rival of Trevino played against him in the PGA Tour in the late 1960s. Lee was the winner of the Vardon Trophy in 1970, 1971, 1972, 1974, and 1980, as well as the winner of the Jack Nicklaus Trophy (Champions Tour) 1990, 1992, 1994, the Arnold Palmer Award (Champions Tour) 1990, 1992, and Rookie of the Year (Champions Tour) 1990. He worked for NBC television as a color analyst from 1983 until 1989 for the PGA Tour. Many non-golf fans will recognize Trevino from his roll in Adam Sandlers movie Happy Gilmore, as the head shaking guy.
Lee Buck Trevino (born December 1, 1939) is a Mexican American professional golfer. He is an icon for Mexican Americans, and is often referred to as "The Merry Mex" and "Supermex". He won six major championships over the course of his career.
Trevino was born in Dallas, Texas into a family of Mexican ancestry. He was raised by his mother, Juanita Trevino, and his grandfather, Joe Trevino, a gravedigger. Trevino never knew his father, Joseph Trevino, who left when his son was small. Trevino's childhood consisted of attending school occasionally and working to earn money for the family. At age five, he started working in the cotton fields.
Trevino was introduced to golf when his uncle gave him a few golf balls and an old golf club. He then spent his free time sneaking into nearby country clubs to practice, and began as a caddy at the Dallas Athletic Club. He soon began caddying full-time. Trevino had to leave school at 14 to go to work. He earned $30 a week as a caddy and a shoeshiner. He was also able to practice golf, since the caddies had three short holes behind their shack. After work, he would hit at least 300 balls. Trevino has claimed to have earned extra money by challenging competitors to rounds of golf where he used only a shovel and taped-up 32-ounce glass Dr. Pepper bottle.
When he turned 17, he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps, and served four years. Part of his time was spent playing golf with Marine Corps officers. Trevino claims being a golf partner helped earn him promotion to lance corporal. He played successfully in Armed Forces golf events in Asia, where one rival was Orville Moody, who would follow Trevino to the PGA Tour in the late 1960s.
After his discharge, Trevino became a club professional in El Paso, Texas. He made extra money by gambling for stakes in head-to-head matches. He began play on the PGA Tour in 1967. In his second U.S. Open golf championship, he shot 283, eight shots behind champion Jack Nicklaus, and earned $6,000
