Living in Dallas, I root for the Mavericks and the Stars and the Cowboys, but I’ve always pulled for the Chicago Cubs. I enjoy watching them play.

Michael Jordan was a tremendous basketball player.
Lee Trevino

No one who ever had lessons would have a swing like mine.
Lee Trevino

I’m not scared of very much. I’ve been hit by lightning and been in the Marine Corps for four years.
Lee Trevino

When it comes to the game of life, I figure I’ve played the whole course.
Lee Trevino

Yes, I think I have the best swing on the Tour. Why have scores comedown in the last ten years? Partly because they are imitating me.
Lee Trevino

I use an Arnold Palmer putter that was probably built back in 1954.
Lee Trevino

Pressure is when you play for five dollars a hole with only two in your pocket.
Lee Trevino

I’ve traveled the world and been about everywhere you can imagine. There’s not anything I’m scared of except my wife.
Lee Trevino

If I could do anything over, I’d have spent more time with my first set of children. I would have taken more quality time with them, for sure.
Lee Trevino

If you are caught on a golf course during a storm and are afraid of lightning, hold up a 1-iron. Not even God can hit a 1-iron.
Lee Trevino

Putts get real difficult the day they hand out the money.

The most interesting guy I’ve ever played with was King Hassan of Morocco. I went over there on a trip in the early 1970s, and the King and I played five holes. I’ve never been that nervous in my life.
Lee Trevino

I’m actually a very quiet person off the golf course. I talk 150 miles per hour when I’m at the course, but when in private I very seldom ever open my mouth.
Lee Trevino

Golf isn’t just my business, it’s my hobby.
Lee Trevino

His nerve, his memory, and I can’t remember the third thing.
Lee Trevino

I’m not out there just to be dancing around. I expect to win every time I tee up.
Lee Trevino

The older I get the better I used to be!
Lee Trevino

I’m going to win so much money this year, my caddie will make the top twenty money winner’s list.
Lee Trevino

My divorce came to me as a complete surprise. That’s what happens when you haven’t been home in eighteen years.
Lee Trevino

A hungry dog hunts best.
Lee Trevino

I stay away from the telephone if at all possible.
Lee Trevino

You can talk to a fade but a hook won’t listen.
Lee Trevino

I still sweat. My guts are still grinding out there. Sometimes I have enough cotton in my mouth to knit a sweater.
Lee Trevino

I’ve played golf with three U.S presidents.
Lee Trevino

Nobody but you and your caddie care what you do out there, and if your caddie is betting against you, he doesn’t care, either.
Lee Trevino

One of the nice things about the Senior Tour is that we can take a cart and cooler. If your game is not going well, you can always have a picnic.
Lee Trevino

Pressure is playing for ten dollars when you don’t have a dime in your pocket.
Lee Trevino

I think a lot of Jim Thorpe, the Olympian, and his accomplishments.
Lee Trevino

There are two things that won’t last long in this world, and that’s dogs chasing cars and pros putting for pars.
Lee Trevino

I met Jesse Owens once. He was a remarkable individual, and I have tremendous respect for what he did in the Olympics under the circumstances.
Lee Trevino

I never played much golf as a kid. I caddied quite a bit but never got serious into golf until about age 15.
Lee Trevino

There is no such thing as natural touch. Touch is something you create by hitting millions of golf balls.
Lee Trevino

How can they beat me? I’ve been struck by lightning, had two back operations, and been divorced twice.
Lee Trevino

I adore the game of golf. I won’t ever retire.
Lee Trevino

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.
Lee Trevino

I have an orthopedic pillow that’s made out of a sponge material. I have a plate in my throat, and I have to be careful or I could end up with a bad neck in the morning. That pillow is a must everywhere I go.
Lee Trevino

My wife doesn’t care what I do when I’m away, as long as I don’t have a good time.
Lee Trevino

In case of a thunderstorm, stand in the middle of the fairway and hold up a one iron. Not even God can hit a one iron.
