Stanford senior Maverick McNealy was named the Ben Hogan Award winner on Monday night as the top college and amateur player in the country.

McNealy, who is No. 2 in the World Amateur Ranking, is the sixth consecutive player from the Pac-12 to win the award. The other finalists were Oregon senior Wyndham Clark and Illinois junior Dylan Meyer.

The 21-year-old McNealy, who has not yet determined whether he will play professional golf or remain an amateur, was a three-time finalist for the award, considered the most prestigious in amateur golf. Heading into this week's NCAA Championship, he has matched Stanford's all-time wins record, with 11. 

Past winners of the Hogan Award include Bill Haas, Rickie Fowler and Jon Rahm
