A Longitudinal Examination of Two Elite Golfer‟s Sport-Confidence
MetadataShow full item record
This study examined the sport-confidence beliefs of a female professional and male collegiate golfer from a broader macro perspective. The study took place over 6 months of their competitive seasons. Data collection comprised of unstructured interviews, confidence profiling, and reflective diaries. Macro changes in each player‟s sources and types of sport-confidence were evident throughout the six month period, highlighting the importance of adopting an ideographic approach to the assessment of sport-confidence in order to tailor interventions to an athlete‟s individual confidence needs. Specifically, reflection emerged as a potentially important addition to supplement traditional mental skills (i.e. goal-setting, imagery, self-talk) in an attempt to develop stronger, more stable sport-confidence beliefs.
