MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN EDUCATION

One Birdie at a time.

Maverick is donating $100 for every birdie he makes this season.

About Maverick

Maverick McNealy is a 28 year old professional golfer, playing his sixth season on the PGA Tour. Maverick was a former San Jose Junior Sharks hockey player through high school, where he attended the Harker School in San Jose, California. He is the oldest of 4 brothers and currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada for the 20 weeks a year he is home!!

In 2013, Maverick decided that smashing drives was a better path than getting smashed into the boards on the ice rink, and earned a spot as an unranked junior golfer on the Stanford Men’s Golf team. Maybe Coach Ray had a soft spot for other hockey players, because Maverick only received one other Division 1 offer to play before Stanford! In four years, he earned a B.S. in Management Science and Engineering and eleven collegiate victories, tying a program record…

Maverick’s Next Goal is Another $1M

A few of the amazing things Curriki has done this year are:

I’m signed up again to donate $100 for each birdie I make this season.

Birdies has raised $1.281M so far.

The Impact of Your Generous Contributions

I couldn’t be more excited to get going in the 2023-2024 Season!

My goal this season is 400 birdies! I made 248 last year.

Making a difference in education is something the Curriki team and I are very passionate about, and we wouldn’t be able to make this impact without all of your generous contributions of all sizes.

 Maverick’s Road Ahead

Rocket Mortgage Classic

June 24-30, 2024
Detroit, MI 
 
Maverick’s 2021 Finish: T-21
Maverick’s 2020 Finish: T-8
 
The Par-72, 7,370-yard Detroit Golf Club will host this year’s tournament, and was founded in 1899. In honor of Detroit’s area code, “Area 313” is a three-hole stretch that includes the 543-yard, Par-5 14th hole; the 160-yard, Par-3 15th hole; and the 450-yard, Par-4 16th hole. The Area 313 Challenge offers Tour players to compete to make an eagle, ace, birdie (3-1-3) on holes 14, 15 and 16 to have $313,000 donated to help bridge the digital divide in Detroit. One of Detroit’s signature holes is #11. It is the longest Par-3 at the club, ranging from 180-233 yards depending on tee placement. The green may look simple from the tee but has a front bowl and other challenging locations. 

John Deere Classic

July 1-7, 2024
Silvis, IL 
 
Maverick’s 2022 Finish: T-8
Maverick’s 2021 Finish: T-17
 
Hosted by TPC Deere Run, a Par-71, 7,257-yard course, is on land with much history–including Native American settlements, farming, coal mining, and most recently top horse and cattle breeding ranches. The course is framed by oak trees and accented by small ponds and deep ravines, and each hole is named after the land’s rich heritage. The signature hole is #16, “Mother Earth”, a short 153-yard Par 3, sitting on a bluff 40 feet above the Rock River. It is guarded on the left by Rock River, in front by a shale outcropping with a huge bunker, and to the right by another large bunker. 

The British Open

July 15-21, 2024 
Troon, Scotland, UK
 
Founded in 1860, The Open is the oldest golf tournament in the world, and one of the most prestigious. The winner is named “the Champion Golfer of the Year”. The Open is always played on a coastal links golf course. The terrain is open, often without any trees, and primarily shaped by nature, rather than ‘built’. One of Royal Troon’s Old Course signature holes is the Par-3, 123-yard #8, nicknamed the “Postage Stamp”. The shortest hole in Open Championship golf, the tee is on high ground and a dropping shot is played over a gully to a long but extremely narrow green set into the side of a large sandhill. Two bunkers protect the left side of the green while a large crater bunker shields the approach. Any mistake on the right will find one of the two deep bunkers with near vertical faces. The safest way to play this hole is to find the green with the tee-shot.

The State of Education

Making a difference in education is something the Curriki team and I are very passionate about, and we wouldn’t be able to make this impact without all of your generous contributions of all sizes. I couldn’t be more excited to get going in 2024!

A few of the amazing things Curriki has done this year are: built an interactive video player so students can engage with videos instead of passively watching them, helped build easier-to-use authoring tools for teachers with ready-made layouts and templates, and launched several partners such as Katy ISD, Baylor University, and First Tee!
