SkyCaddie has joined forces with world-renowned golf coach Hank Haney and former US Open winner Jim Furyk

The pair will join the SkyGolf Advisory Panel to promote the course management and performance benefits of SkyCaddie.

Haney, who has coached World No.1 Tiger Woods, will join LPGA winner Natalie Gulbis, together with Furyk, to champion the market-leading GPS device.

SkyCaddie UK managing director, Jackie Hitchcock, said: “This is a major announcement. Hank Haney is one of the world’s top golf coaches and Jim Furyk is one of the most instantly recognisable – and successful – golfers in the world.

“Both truly understand how valuable it is for amateur golfers to have trusted course information at their fingertips, especially Jim who is renowned for his accuracy.”

Furyk, currently World No.13, said: “As a Tour player, I count on my caddie, Mike ‘Fluff’ Cowan, each week to provide me with accurate course information and distances so that I can manage my game, and enhance my shot making.”

“Most recreational golfers will never experience the benefits of having a ‘Fluff’ on their bag. SkyCaddie, however, is almost the same, because it offers amateurs the same information based upon the same reliable methods used at the professional level.”
