Calendar illustration (for January/February 1985) from "Golf Magazine's" Great Moments from the Silver Era (1959-1983). Lithograph copy by Walt Spitzmiller (1984). Headed: "Silver Era/The British Open Royal Birkdale". Headed at lower margin: "Mexican Hat Trick". Captioned at lower margin, in full: "Lee Trevino won three national championships in four wonderful weeks in 1971. Four weeks before, the Merry Mex had defeated Jack Nicklaus by three shots for the U.S. Open title at Merion. Then he won the Canadian Open. Now Lee Trevino had a chance to win the British Open at Royal Birkdale to cap off an amazing midsummer hat-trick -- three national championships in one year, a first. Leading Taiwan's Mr. Lu by three shots and England's Tony Jacklin by four going to the 17th hole, Trevino lost strokes to the treacherous British rough but pulled himself together and parred 18 for his victory. Just three golfers had previously won the U.S. and British Championships in the same year: Bobby Jones (1930) Gene Sarazen (1932) and Ben Hogan (1953). None had added the Canadian for good measure -- and no one has since." Lee Trevino, born 1939 and also known as "SuperMex", won 27 PGA tournaments, including six major championships: the U.S. Open (1968, 1971), the British Open (1971, 1972) and the PGA Championship (1974, 1984). After joining the Senior Tour (now the Champions Tour) in 1990, he surpassed his PGA totals, winning 29 tournaments. Also a member of seven Ryder Cup teams (and Captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team in 1985), Trevino was inducted into the PGA's World Golf Hall of Fame in 1981. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 31½x24¼.
