TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

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

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."
