Golf legend Lee Trevino visits Tyler

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

It's not a everyday a six-time major championship winner hangs out in Tyler.

World Golf Hall of Famer Lee Trevino spoke at Hollytree Country Club for the Patriot Golf Classic. 

The 73-year old put on a show, telling stories about his impressive career and hosting a 30 minute exhibition.

Trevino says he's not a fan of retirement.

Having started playing golf at the age of 17, he hasn't slowed down one bit.

"I always had a passion and I still do," said Trevino. "I still play everyday and I still hit balls everyday and I go to the gym everyday. I still eat the cookies and ice cream and everything, but it's ok, because I work hard at it and I still do it every single day."

Trevino won six major championships while in the PGA Tour and added four more major title son the Senior PGA Tour.

He also served in the United States Marine Corps for four years.
