TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 3: TREVINO: "I just like to play golf. I like to play golf seven days a week. I haven't been playing as long as some of the other players. I can see why Jack (Nicklaus) takes time off because he's been playing competitive since he was 13 years old. I've been playing competitive four years this August. So I'm still a rookie. I'll be right in Chicago ext week I guarantee you."

Background: Lee Trevino, the Mexican born golfer who has only been playing top golf for four years, today won the British Open Championship at Southport near Liverpool. Trevino has won the United States and Canadian Open titles already this year. Throughout the tournament the ever smiling Trevino staged fine comebacks on the last few holes and was never out of the lead. He had a last round 70 for a total 278. In second place was Liang Huan Lu of Taiwan on 279 who had a great chance to snatch the title from Trevino after the Mexican had a seven on the second last hole... but he was unable to capitalise.
