Adam Long was born on September 25th, 1987 in Louisiana to his parents Gordon and Jane Long. Adam grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and from a young age knew that golf was the game he was destined to play. He attended Francis Howell High School in St. Charles, Missouri, where he was a four-time all-state All-Metro selection and ranked 8th in the Golfweek Junior Golf Rankings. From high school, Adam decided to start his collegiate golf career on the Men’s Golf Team at Duke University.

His sophomore year, Adam was third on his team with a 72.7 stroke average and tied for 13th at the ACC Championship. During Adam’s junior year on the men’s golf team, he was a PING All-East Region Selection as well as tying for third at the Big 4 Challenge. Adam’s senior year proved that he was going to come out on top – ranking 6th nationally and 22nd among all US Amateurs in the Golfweek Amateur Rankings. Adam quickly turned pro after graduating from Duke in 2010 with his bachelor’s degree in Sociology.

In 2016 he played 24 events on the Web.com Tour, made 12 cuts, and posted two top 10s. In 2017 Adam finished at number 44 on the Regular Season money list, and carded three top-10 finishes in 24 events. Adam finished the 2018 Web.com Tour season with 17 made cuts, one runner-up, and four top 10s in 27 starts. He finished at number 13 on the Regular Season money list, securing his PGA TOUR card for the 2018-2019 season. He was 37th in final priority-ranking order.
