On November 7, 1995, the American golfer was born in Portola Valley, California. He earned a Management Science and Engineering degree from Stanford University in 2018.

Around the end of 2016 or the beginning of 2017, McNealy held the top spot in the World Amateur Golf Ranking before going professional. His first win as a novice occurred in 2014 at the Fighting Illini Invite presented by the OFCC.

Following this, Maverick McNealy won many more amateur competitions in 2015 and 2016. The following is a list of my amateur victories:
