Prior to turning professional, Dylan Meyer established himself as one of the top amateurs in the world as a collegiate standout at the University of Illinois. With a top-25 finish in his first major appearance, the gritty and tenacious Evansville, Indiana product is ready to build on that and make a statement at the next level.
With a 134 mph swing speed and 190+ mph ball speed, Norman Xiong is already turning heads on Tour with his sheer power and athleticism. After a record-breaking collegiate career, the 19-year-old is ready to take the next step when he tees it up against the best in the world.
Though only having two offers to play golf in college, Maverick McNealy went from walk-on to Haskins Award winner at Stanford University. A hockey player at heart, Mav’s resilient attitude and methodical approach on the golf course has him poised to make a name for himself on Tour.
With three high school state championships, four wins in fifteen collegiate starts, and a victory in his first year as professional, Sam Burns has been dominant at every level of his golf career. After earning his PGA Tour card in 2018, he looks to add to his already impressive resume.
