Currently ranked No. 1 on the World Amateur Golf Ranking and tied with Tiger Woods on the Stanford all-time wins list, Maverick McNealy ’13 has a lot to be proud of. In his final year at Stanford, McNealy recently added to his prestigious career when he received the 2017 Byron Nelson Award. Only graduating seniors are eligible for the award, and a golfer’s entire collegiate and academic career, plus his integrity and character, are considered when selecting the winner.
“It is an absolute honor to be the recipient of this award, one that carries on Mr. Nelson’s legacy,” said McNealy in a statement. “I am humbled to be thought of as an exemplar of what he stood for, and his example will continue to serve as a great model in golf and life. I look forward to the challenge of representing and upholding the values of this award to the best of my abilities.”
