dc.description.abstractThe aim of this present study was to investigate how high skilled amateur golfers source confidence in the lead up to a competition. Eight proficient golfers from Cardiff Metropolitan University were interviewed. The sport of golf was specifically chosen due to the suspected unique socio-cultural and organisational cultures of the individual sport. Seven sources of confidence were identified as being salient to the sample group: event preparation, golfing accomplishments, coaching, perceived advantage, comfort in playing environment, social support and golfing image. Results indicated that event preparation and golfing accomplishments were the most cited sources of confidence in the lead up to a competition. This finding may suggest that specific sources may be more beneficial than others to golfers for developing confidence. Further qualitative research involving a greater number of participants may be required in order to gain a more in depth understanding of why such sources are salient to high skilled amateur golfers.en_US
