GOLF OR BUSINESS?

Maverick was born in Portola Valley, California where house prices are amongst the highest in America and the average income is £350,000-per-year.

He grew up playing golf, but didn’t always envisage becoming a pro. 反而, he expected to follow in his dad’s footsteps in business.

在 2018 he graduated from Stanford, one of America’s great universities, with a degree in Management Science and Engineering.

但, by that time, his mind was already set on joining the PGA Tour though.

Three years prior, Maverick shot a 61 in the final round of the Pac-12 Conference Championship tournament, tying the 18-hole Stanford record held by Tiger Woods and Cameron Wilson.

Maverick, 当然, isn’t in it for the money.

他说 Golf DigestMy dad often tells me the most well-funded start-ups always fail, and that a short cash runway lights a fire under your rear that’s hard to emulate.

I don’t judge my success in golf by how much money I’ve made; I judge it by my effort and commitment.

DAD MADE A MINT

Maverick’s father Scott was a keen golfer himself.

然而, 在 1982 he put golf to one side and co-founded computer technology company Sun Microsystems, alongside Vinod Khosla, Bill Joy, and Andy Bechtolsheim.

在 2010, he stepped aside as CEOas the company was sold for a staggering £5billion.

然而, despite his riches he made sure Maverick (and his three other sons) understood the value of money and they were never spoiled.

Maverick said: “My brothers and I never got an allowance, and we were told that once we graduated from college, we’d have one summer to find a job and then we’d be on our own.

My dad would’ve made me pay rent to live at home after school—I’m not kidding!”

RENT WOULD’VE BEEN EXPENSIVE

If Maverick would’ve stayed at home, it would’ve cost him a few bob, because the family home was once valued at £72million.

一个 28,000 square-foot Palo Alto mansion, it boasted 20 rooms over four levels.

Inside was an astonishing 4,700 square-foot room, which boasted its own changing room.

It had its own ice rink, golf course, basketball court, 网球场, climbing wall, pool, sauna and jacuzzi.

And for dinner, you could settle in the ‘pizza room’. 这是正确的, an entire room where you can make pizza.

LOVE IS IN THE AIR

Although living in a palace would be a dream, Maverick has his own home in Las Vegas, where property is more affordable.

And he lives with LPGA Tour star Danielle Kang, who he’s been dating since 2019.

Ranked 5th in the world, Kang, 28, has already made over £4million in career earnings.

She’s also not afraid to pass on advice to Maverick, if his game has gone to pot.
