Lee Trevino on Monday was named The Greenbrier's new pro emeritus.

Per a release from the club, Trevino will be "in residence" at the West Virginia resort during the summer months, during which time he will conduct clincs.

“It is such an honor to have Lee Trevino, one of the most acclaimed golfers ever to play on the tour, join our team at The Greenbrier,” said Jim Justice, owner of The Greenbrier. “Lee has always been one of the most charismatic players in the game, and we look forward to welcoming him and his family to The Greenbrier this year."

Trevino, 79, follows Sam Snead (1993-2002) and Tom Watson (2005-15) as the club's third pro emeritus. Justice announced in March that Watson would not be return to his post after a 10-year run, saying the two-time Ryder Cup captain's time had become "limited."

A six-time major champion, Trevino joins Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson as members of the resort's professional staff, while Nick Faldo's name appears on The Greenbrier Faldo Golf Center.
