In Loving Memory, Mike Dunaway, February 1, 1955 to September 29, 2014
Thank you for your condolences–please take a moment and leave your thoughts and stories about Mike for his friends and family, by clicking this link.
elcome to DunawayLong.com, the official website of Mike Dunaway. I’d like to personally thank you for visiting, as I am excited about finally having a home for the lifetime of experiences and learned golfing techniques that have made me, by many folks standards, the greatest driver of the golf ball of all time.
My mentor in golf and in life was Mike Austin, who I had the privilege to learn from for over 20 years. A special thanks go out to Mike, as well as Ely Callaway and Dick Helmstetter with Callaway Golf, who supported me throughout my career. Along with a little hard work, I developed a repeatable and extremely powerful golf swing. At DunawayLong.com, you will not find the “folklore and bar talk” that is being passed around youtube and amongst those conjecturing on how my swing works. You will get the “real deal”, direct from me.
I am pleased to introduce Escape Force Motion: The One Thought Golf Swing. I have never been more excited about a golf instruction series. I believe that it will absolutely change your perspective on how the golf swing really works, allowing you to spend more time enjoying this great game with longer and straighter flying shots. Also, be sure to check out the Mumbleshed while you are here. The mental side of golf is every bit as important as the physical, and the Mumbleshed is the place to start getting your head right, and put to bed the negatives and anxieties that prevent you from playing your best.
Thanks again for stopping by, and be sure to come back often as we will be adding never before seen video footage and other offerings in the near future.
Enjoy your search to be Dunaway Long– Mike
I have watched "Escape Force Motion: The One Thought Golf Swing 10 times then went and played 20 holes (walking) with Andrea---Wow! I had not even tried it out on the range yet---I was driving the ball so straight and with effortless power landing it in the middle of fairways. My ball trajectory was the best I have ever seen it. Now I have always been straight but short and even with all the schooling I got from Mike Austin during his last 2 years which I was with him 4 days a week with him putting me on the Flammer, looking at and commenting on my swing videos, showing me everything---and since his death I have watched all his videos 100s of times each I was still missing something because I never got the distance. In "Escape Force Motion" Mike has made it so simple that everything clicked for me---today I saw the most incredible results---I was using old set of clubs because my playing set was elsewhere---Ping Eye 2 Blue Dot Old irons and everything else mismatched---played in the 70's near par with only 2 bogeys, 2 birdies since we jumped around on the course it was not all the holes but we did play 20 holes. I may have convinced Andrea to listen to me after today! Ha Ha. She thought I was somebody else or Mike Austin had jumped into my skin (I putted real good too using the same Escape Force Motion on a smaller scale) I even called Mike Dunaway during play as I was so pumped up from the results. I had to visit Verizon for my IPhone account there and talked with Jesse a young guy who is trying to play Golf I showed him the new web site and told my story of what happened with me today and he was going to order a copy. I hope you will give it a look because Mike has made it so simple and easy to understand. This what Golf really needs to get more success with our students so they get more Fun and enjoyment out of playing this great Game.
Dear Mr. Dunaway, I would like to congratulate you for your decision to enlighten the golf world ! As a Austin fan for some years hoped that you will come along one day to tell us the truth as some parts are still not clear even with all the available videos . But for me this new video cleared all my questions . A big Thank You from Germany
Please tell Mike Dunaway the Escape Force Motion video is so damn awesome!!! I found the missing link I've been looking for from all the other instructions out there on the Mike Austin swing. I literally scared myself with how far & straight my swings are now (only after seeing the video once!). :-)
The video is great ... was fortunate to stream while stuck in an airport and it occupied every minute of my six hour delay ... its about as simple an explanation of the MA method that you could imagine ... I highly recommend this video to both the veteran MA advocates as well as those just beginning their journey ... kudos to Mike!
As soon as I got word of Mike Dunaway's new video, I knew I had to have it. When I first started long driving, I had alot of clubhead speed but my swing was uncontrolled and violent. Mike was the first guy that showed me ways to make my swing more efficient so I could find the fairway more often and told me that hitting the grid (long drive term for fairway) is where the money is in long driving. I have kept the notes from my time on the practice tee with Mike over the years and have referred back to them often throughout my career and his tips and swing keys have served me pretty well in becoming the only American in the sports history to win three world championships in the mens open division of the RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship, and the 5th member inducted to the sport's Hall of Fame.
Every golfer, don’t care who they are, from multiple major winning tour pros to the weekend four baller, has visited the MumbleShed. It’s a more popular destination than you might think. A visit normally goes along hand in hand with those repeating first tee jitters, the yipped two footer to close out a Nassau, a topped 8 iron into the water on a par 3, a cold shanked sand wedge after nearly driving a short par 4, losing a 5 stroke lead on a final round Sunday, spraying it out of bounds on 18 when you have your lifetime low score in the balance, not being able to pull the trigger, chilly dipping a chip on the final hole to lose your member-guest, and on, and on. For every one of the millions of golfers out there, there are 5 times the number of MumbleShed moments.
