Mike Dunaway was honored last week at the opening of the 2013 Remax World Long Drive Championship.
Mike of course is the most famous of Mike Austin’s students, but many don’t know how instrumental Dunaway was to the sport of long driving. Many don’t know that the Callaway Big Bertha technology was developed in the 80’s with Dunaway as the company’s tester. His feedback led directly to the Big Bertha.
He was also the inspiration for Art Sellinger, founder of Long Drivers of America.
You want to know why Henrik Stenson kills the ball and doesn’t even look as if he’s swinging hard?
I might have taken a look at his swing years ago but didn’t see anything remarkable (he was very inconsistent, I might have only looked at his slo-mo swings back in ’09 when he won the Players’ Championship).
I caught some of his win in the Deutche Bank last week and decided today to see if there were any good clips of his recent swings on Youtube. His swing looked pretty good, but I didn’t catch any good angles in the tournament when I was watching.
