McNealy earned his place in the field by winning the 2016 McCormack Medal for being the No. 1 player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking after last summer's U.S. Amateur Championship. The Stanford University senior represented the USA in the 2015 Walker Cup Match and Palmer Cup, and 2016 World Amateur Team Championship. McNealy will be competing in his second U.S. Open after missing the cut in 2014 at Pinehurst as an 18-year-old qualifier. In May, he won the 2017 Ben Hogan Award for being the best college golfer. The award takes into consideration results from college and amateur events. He won the 2015 Pacific-12 Conference title by shooting a final-round 61 to tie the Stanford 18-hole scoring record held by Tiger Woods and Cameron Wilson. He won the 2015 Haskins Award presented to college golf's player of the year.
