About Maverick

Maverick McNealy is a 28 year old professional golfer, playing his third 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. He spent 47 weeks as the #1 ranked amateur in the world, had the second-lowest single-season scoring average in NCAA history in 2015 (69.05), was a three-time first-team All-American, won the 2015 Jack Nicklaus Award (best collegiate golfer) and Fred Haskins Award (top collegiate golfer), 2017 Ben Hogan Award (best collegiate golfer), and the 2017 Byron Nelson Award (presented to one graduating senior Division 1 golfer considering playing record, academic record, character, and community service).

Maverick’s educational opportunities at Harker and Stanford, as well as those afforded by the game of golf have inspired his two primary charitable passions: making both high-quality eduction and the game of golf more accessible to all students so that they too can benefit from all that education and golf can bring!

Maverick turned pro in the fall of 2017 after earning a 4-0 record on the victorious US Walker Cup Team, and advanced through Web.com Tour Q-School, earning guaranteed starts with a t-10th place finish at Final Stage. His first season on the Web.com (now Korn Ferry Tour) had ups and downs, but resulted in finishing 65th in the season-ending points race, earning him full KFT status for the 2019 season. The 2019 season saw a solo-second place finish early in the year, followed by a crucial t-3rd place finish at the Ellie Mae Classic in the second-to-last event of the season to secure Maverick’s first PGA Tour Card. 2019 was also the first year of Birdies for Education, benefitting the education nonprofit Curriki!

The 2019-20 PGA Tour season was highlighted by three top-10 finishes at the AT&T Pebble Beach, Rocket Mortgage Classic and Barracuda Championship, and saw Maverick finish 68th in the FedEx Cup and climb into the top 200 In the world.
