ABOUT MAVERICK

I was born November 7, 1995 in Stanford, California, the oldest of four brothers (Dakota, Colt, and Scout). We all played ice hockey for the San Jose Jr. Sharks and competitive amateur golf.

I attended Stanford University from 2013-2017, earning a degree in Management Science and Engineering. While at Stanford, I set the school record for career scoring average (70.13), tied the school record for the number of individual wins (11), and spent 47 weeks as the world’s top-ranked amateur golfer. I also won the Fred Haskins, Ben Hogan, and Jack Nicklaus awards as collegiate player of the year, the Mark McCormack Medal as the world’s #1 amateur and the Byron Nelson award for golf, academics, and community service.

In 2017 I made my professional debut at the Safeway Open.

ABOUT BRANDON

My name is Brandon Wu and I’m from Scarsdale New York. I have been playing golf since I was a little kid, and now, I’m chasing my dreams as a professional. Two of my passions in life are education and sports, and I am constantly looking for ways to combine the two.

I started playing golf when I was about 7 years old. I played my college golf at Stanford, finishing 4th in Career Scoring Average at Stanford behind Maverick McNealy, Patrick Rodgers, and Tiger Woods, and culminating with an NCAA Championship my senior year. In 2019, I became the first amateur to qualify for the US Open and Open Championship since 1967! I missed my Stanford graduation to play the final round at the US Open received my diploma at Pebble Beach. I also won a team Gold Medal for Team USA at the Pan Am Games that summer, and was a part of the victorious US Walker Cup Team.

My family instilled the importance of education in me at a young age and I want to help all kids have access to the same academic opportunities I had, so everyone of them will be able to find their own passions.

THE ROAD AHEAD

Puerto Rico Open

The Puerto Rico Open is the only PGA Tour event held in Puerto Rico. The tournament is played at the Coco Beach Golf Course (previously Trump International Golf Club Puerto Rico). Designed by Tom Kite, it was his first design project outside the mainland US. The courses feature seashore paspalum grass, white silica sand bunkers and challenging water hazards for truly world-class play.

The Honda Classic

The Honda Classic is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour in south Florida. It was founded 48 years ago in 1972 as Jackie Gleason's Inverrary Classic, and is usually the first of the Florida events in late winter following the "West Coast Swing." The Honda has been hosted by PGA National Resort and Spa since 2007. The Champion course was redesigned in 2002 by Jack Nicklaus. The tough three hole stretch of the par-3 15th, par-4 16th, and par-3 17th holes is known as "The Bear Trap," after Nicklaus, who is nicknamed the Golden Bear.

Arnold Palmer Invitational

March 2-8, 2020 The Arnold Palmer Invitational is played at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge, a private golf resort owned since 1974 by Arnold Palmer. A course rich in history, it was the 1st planted with Tifway (Tifton 419) Bermuda grass. In Summer, 2009 Palmer decided to renovate the course with the specific goals of the renovation on three distinct areas: Agronomic/Maintenance (redesign of all 18 greens), Playability and Aesthetics which included the reworking of all the bunkering and major changes in four holes that altered the yardage from 7,103 to 7,196 and from par 71 to par 72.

JOIN ME AS WE ADVANCE THE STATE OF EDUCATION

To kick off my first season on the PGA Tour, I want to do even more to move the ball forward in education. I’ve been incredibly fortunate in my education and I believe that every student should have the benefits of a high quality education. And that’s why I’m supporting Curriki.
Curriki makes it possible for students in underserved schools to have the same high quality curriculum as the most prestigious schools. In doing so, Curriki has reached an estimated 200 million students around the world for more than 10 years and I know they’ll be able to make an even bigger impact on learning in the years to come.
I’ve been volunteering with Curriki since I was in high school, so it’s an organization that is very special to me.
Please join me in Birdies for Education!

ABOUT BIRDIES FOR EDUCATION

Making a Difference in Education One Putt at a Time.

Birdies for Education was created in 2019 by PGA TOUR player Maverick McNealy to raise funds for education non-profit, Curriki.org.

Giving back. It’s what drives me to play my best game every time. Every kid deserves a solid, high-quality education and my fundraising campaign supports Curriki.org, a non-profit organization that is completely focused on making sure kids have opportunity to go anywhere and do anything they want in life. Even the PGA Tour.
