Getting to Know | Trey ValentineJuly 12, 2016
Since the beginning we knew that Devereux would be a lifestyle brand designed with performance, sport, and fashion in mind. After all, what man want’s to truly partake in something they can’t be stylish in? Over the past few years as our brand and as the sport of golf has grown and become (thankfully) more stylish, we are seeing our motto come to life – Look Good, Play Good. Because of this, we have extended our foot into the sport by signing players to our roster to help further our point that your game is just as effected off the course as it is on it. You may or may not know we have added a few PGA golfers on our team during this time span. Most notable is our most recent signee, Danny Lee, which occurred earlier this year. This signing had quite the impact on fellow golfers and golf enthusiasts alike; which you can read about here, here, or here. So, you may be asking who the others are? Throughout the rest of the year Proper Threads will be profiling each of them. First on the list is a young golfer making his rounds (so to speak) – Trey Valentine.
At just 23 years old Trey has been taking the PGA Latin Tournament by storm and rightfully so – he turned pro last year and has already qualified for several national and international contests. Trey was a solid prospect since graduating the University of South Florida in 2014. During his senior year at USF he appeared in 12 tournaments, competing in 37 rounds, and averaged 72 strokes per round, which included 14 rounds were he shot par or better. He also helped to lead USF to a conference title. You can follow Trey on Twitter and Instagram to keep up with his golf game, dope hair, fashionable outfits, and latest travels – which are sure to make you a little bit jealous as you can see from the few awesome photos featured in this blog post.
Here’s some fun facts about Trey:
- Earliest and favorite golf memory is a hole-in-one he made at age 10.
- Biggest thrill in golf was winning his first college event, in 2013.
- Odell Beckham, Jr. is his favorite athlete outside golf, and the San Francisco 49ers are his favorite pro team.

Keep an eye on this kid. He’s made a few cuts already this year and is destined to make several others before the year ends. Trey is a player we know will demonstrate his leadership in the game of golf and as a stylish player in the sport.
