There will always be a demand for Lee Trevino Golf Memorabilia; he is renowned as a true legend of the game.

Lee (b 1939) a professional American golfer is remembered for his incredible style of play and his showmanship on the course, his swing would often appear awkward and then at the critical moment his body would be perfectly coordinated, I well remember his amazing short game occasionally he would shout "don't move, hole!'' when he'd hit an iron at the pin, his shots were just amazing and made for fantastic viewing.

His career began on the PGA tour in 1967, the following year he won the US open at Oak Hill.

He continued his stunning performances from that point on, building and consolidating his reputation when in 1971 in the period of a month he won three major’s the US Open, the Canadian Open and the British Open.

Whist playing in the Western Open in Chicago in 1975 he had the misfortune to be struck by lightning, his spine was damaged but after several operations he was back on the practise ground.

Trevino went on win the Canadian open twice prior to winning the US PGA trophy in 1984.

During his career Trevino won 29 times on the PGA Tour adding 6 Majors to his impressive list of wins.

Lee Trevino golf memorabilia from any of the 6 majors which he won would make an excellent addition to any collection.

He co-authored his autobiography, titled They Call Me Super Mex.

In 1981he was inducted into the World Golf Hall Of Fame
