Stress and emotion process, and the coping strategies used by golfers during performance
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of the study was to investigate the stress and emotion process and use of coping strategies used by golfers during performance, which allowed performers to cope with stressors and maintain or increase performance levels. 4 golfers took part in the study, filling out a mini booklet during performance, and a main booklet after performance. Semi structured interviews were conducted to gain more in depth information about the events experienced during performance. The findings provide further evidence for the changing nature of the stress and emotion process during performance, and the use of multiple coping strategies in different situations by performers. The findings suggest that coping strategies are used to manipulate the stress and emotion process, to help manage stressors encountered, with different strategies used to help maintain performance levels and increase performance levels.
