Action observation in golf putting

Watching someone else perform can help us learn and/or alert us to errors. We are interested in how watching actions of others impacts on processes related to performance and learning. In this research study, you will be asked to practice a golf putting action and will also watch videos of someone else also doing this task (ethics, H23-01790). We are looking for experienced golfers (golfed ≥ 10 times in the past 5 years) OR participants with no past golf experience (golfed ≤ 5 times in the past 5 years), who are able to perform full body movements and putt right-handed. It is anticipated that the study will take ~2 hours. Experienced golfers will only complete the first testing session and participants without golf experience will be asked to return the next day to complete a follow-up testing session that will take ~15 minutes to complete. An honorarium at the rate of $15/hour will be provided upon completion of the study.

Please send us an email if you're interested (preferably a UBC email if you have one), with a phone number and we will send you a consent form with more information.

Please put “Golf observation” in the subject line of the email.
