Maverick McNealy wins Mark McCormack Medal as World No 1 Amateur
American college student Maverick McNealy is the winner of the Mark H. McCormack Medal as the leading player in the 2016 World Amateur Golf Ranking™.

"To win the McCormack Medal is both very special and a huge honour,” said McNealy. “Amateurism is something that is very important to me, and I really appreciate all that the USGA and The R and A do to promote and support the amateur game at all levels. It is very humbling to join the list of previous winners."
A first-team All-American, McNealy won four collegiate events in 2016 for Stanford University, and made the cut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, his only US PGA Tour start of the year. 
In four career US Tour starts, McNealy has made the cut three times.
As winner of the Mark H. McCormack Medal, McNealy receives an exemption into The 146th Open at Royal Birkdale and 2017 U.S. Open Championship as long as he remains an amateur.
+As a member of the touring Stanford University team, McNealy will play at Crail (Sept 8), Carnoustie (Sept 9), St Andrews (Sept 10), Kingsbarns (Sept 11), Cruden Bay (Sept 12), Trump International (Sept 13 am), Royal Aberdeen (pm), Nairn (Sept 14), Castle Stuart (Sept 15) and Royal Dornoch (Sept 16) next month.
