READY TO TOUR . . . Portola Valley resident Maverick McNealy has always wanted to test his game against the best players in the world. Now, he will have the opportunity. On Sunday, the former Stanford All-America was presented with his 2019-20 PGA Tour card after placing No. 23 on the Korn Ferry Tour. The top-25 on the points list secured promotions. "It's funny," McNealy said. "Growing up, the PGA Tour wasn't really on my radar. It wasn't until halfway through college that I thought I could be good enough to do this. I saw a lot of my teammates and friends make the jump to that next level and started to believe I could do it."
TOP HONORS . . Stanford senior Andrea Lee earned the Mark H. McCormack Medal as the leading women's player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. As a result, Lee will be awarded exemptions into the 2020 U.S. Women's Open and AIG Women's British Open if she remains an amateur, as well as an invitation to join the 2020 USA Curtis Cup Team.
