Considered one of the finest golfers to ever grace the game, Lee Trevino revealed that he hardly has any trophies left with him as collecting silverware never mattered to him.

Over the course of his historic career, the former American golfer won a total of 29 PGA Tour competitions and six Major championships. He is one of only four players to have won the US Open and PGA Championship couple of times. The Masters’ tournament was the only Major he missed during the course of his career.

When asked whether he watches his old tapes he said No. Trevino also went on to say that he doesn’t even know where are his trophies as he has chopped them off.

“I took all my trophies and chopped them off. I don’t even have any more trophies except the “Major” ones. We cut them up and put them in a dump.”

When asked what was the reason behind that, the 82-year-old former golfer said: “Why do you need trophies? Nothing needs to remind me I have won those tournaments, I know I have won all those tournaments. I kept all the major ones but when it comes to all the small tournaments I won – I didn’t keep those trophies.”

Recalling his love for the game of golf last year in an interview, Trevino said that he was scared of the thought that what would he do with Golf. The culmination of the best summer of his career was when he was asked to recall his victory at the US Open in Merrion in 1971.

“I loved to hit balls. I still go out every morning and hit balls for two-three hours. And for what? I’m 81 years old. It ain’t like I’m practising for a tournament or anything,” Trevino said, seeming to assess his behaviour as he describes it. “But I can’t say that I really loved golf. I didn’t have a choice. I didn’t have any options. I’m not an educated guy. I left school at 14. I did it as a job.”

“But I had sense enough to know that I could do this job by myself. I didn’t have to have anybody around me. I was the judge. I was on the jury. I wanted to be good at my job.”
