Conrad Ray (@cardcoachray) is a former Cardinal standout student-athlete and touring golf professional and is Stanford’s Knowles Family Director of Men’s Golf (Head Men's Golf Coach). During his tenure as head coach, Ray has led the Cardinal to 10 appearances in the NCAA Championships, including the school’s eighth national title in 2007.

In this video, Ray talks about what he is looking for in a player. One player in particular, Maverick McNealy, did not have an impressive golf resumé entering Stanford but over 4 years he became the #1 amateur in the world. McNealy is an example of how hard work can pay off.
