WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) - Lee Trevino has been named golf pro emeritus at The Greenbrier resort in West Virginia.

The resort announced Thursday that Trevino will replace Tom Watson, whose agreement with The Greenbrier wasn’t renewed after 10 years.

A six-time major winner, the 75-year-old Trevino will teach clinics at the resort’s golf academy during the summer months.

Resort owner Jim Justice had said Watson’s time to dedicate to the resort was limited. Justice preferred having someone on site much of the season.

The resort hosts the PGA Tour’s Greenbrier Classic next month.
