Mark Long has been a PGA TOUR Caddie for more than 20 years, and
currently carries the bag for PGA TOUR veteran and Champions Tour
standout Fred Funk.
Recognized as one of the most respected TOUR Caddies, Mark has been
a staff advisor to SkyGolf since 2000, when the initial SkyCaddie
model was in development. Mark has been instrumental in developing
the SkyCaddie TOUR proven Mapping Methodology -- based on a TOUR
Caddie’s perspective. TOUR Caddies walk every yard of the golf
course to provide distances their pros can trust, as walking the
course is the only way to truly understand the intricacies of a
golf course, and SkyGolf is the only company that has adopted this
Long is the author of several yardage books for TOUR players. In
1998, Mark started authoring yardage books for TOUR pros, by 2001
he perfected his technique, and today is one of the most sought
after yardage book authors on TOUR. In fact, Mark authored the USGA
yardage book for the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines, and will
author the USGA yardage book for the 2009 U.S. Open at Bethpage
Mark started his competitive golf career as a Terrapin for the
University of Maryland under the leadership of Fred Funk. Mark has
caddied in over 600 tournaments for Fred Funk and Nolan Henke,
including 30 majors. He saw his first caddie win with Nolan Henke

TOUR Proven Mapping:
Only SkyCaddie, after getting permission from each golf club, walks
the course with skilled golfers – using sub-meter, survey grade
equipment – to record and verify its course information, using the
same method trusted by TOUR Caddies, for the game’s best players.
Using unverified and possibly out-of-date satellite images is a
cost-saving short cut that could produce unfavorable results for
both the facility and golfer and could hurt the growth of this
category, which is the only growing category in golf. In fact,
satellite images are aerial views that are created by IT
technicians who don’t necessarily have knowledge about the game of
SkyCaddie professional course mappers have literally walked 23,000
courses using state-of-the-art GPS survey grade equipment to
capture distances from every angle on every course. These course
mappers are skilled golfers and established caddies that understand
what’s important for a golfer to score his or her best.
