Turns out, Maverick McNealy isn’t the only member of the McNealy clan who can come up big in the clutch.
On Tuesday, Maverick’s younger brother, Colt, earned a spot in the field of this year’s Web.com Tour Ellie Mae Classic by shooting a medalist-earning 1-under 70 in an 18-hole Junior Tour of Northern California qualifier held on the TPC Stonebrae course in Hayward.
Colt, who’ll be a freshman at Stanford this fall, edged three players, including defending JTNC Player of the Year Thomas Hutchison, for the lone spot. Former JTNC Player of the Year Josh McCarthy, who played in last year’s Ellie Mae Classic after advancing through the qualifier, presented McNealy with the qualifying winner’s plaque.
“I can’t put into words how excited I am to play. We all really appreciate the Ellie Mae Classic giving back to the game by doing things like this,” Colt said.
This year’s Ellie Mae Classic will be held July 31-August 6.
