Welcome to Lee Trevino Quotes

Lee Trevino Quotes recognizes the sense of humor of "The Merry Mex" who may be best remembered for pulling a three-foot rubber snake from his bag on the first playoff hole of the 1971 U.S. Open. 

Another PGA Tour Champion who rose from overwhelming poverty to command a following as much for his quit wit and self-deprecating humor as for his talent with a ball and a club. lee trevino quotes

Lee Trevino was never short with an entertaining quip or a clever quote for the press or massive galleries that loved to follow the PGA Tour's favorite comedian.

Late in his career, Lee Trevino remarked, "I played the tour in 1967 and told jokes and nobody laughed. Then I won the Open the next year, told the same jokes, and everybody laughed like hell."

We all choke, and the man who says he doesn't choke is lying like hell. We all leak oil.

Who can say I have a bad swing? The only thing that matters in golf is the score you put on the board. You don‘t have to look pretty out there, you have to win. Look at my record and tell me who has a better swing than mine.

You can make a lot of money in this game. Just ask my ex-wives. Both of them are so rich that neither of their husbands work.
