Literature Review: Golf problem for Sports

This “Ten Problems for Sports in the 2020s” booklet will introduce ten relevant problems, namely: coaches, performance, fundamentals, match fixing, politics, talent development, diversity, education, economics, e-sports; for the ten most popular sports in the 2020s world, as for estimated fans number: soccer, cricket, basketball, hockey, tennis, volleyball, table tennis, baseball, American football / rugby, golf.

Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the sports that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. soccer,
  2. cricket,
  3. basketball,
  4. hockey,
  5. tennis,
  6. volleyball,
  7. table tennis,
  8. baseball,
  9. american football / rugby,
  10. golf.

Each sport has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references for each open question and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

CONCLUSIONS — Motivational self-talk leads to increased heart-rate and reduced event-related heart rate variability in golf novices before putt. Carbohydrates at the start and a combination of carbohydrate and protein is beneficial at the second part of 9 holes to improve golf performance and maintain levels of fatigue. Practitioners and golfers alike recognize the importance of ‘overall load’ and the sum total of internal and external loads by concluding that wellness should be included within a golf load monitoring tool. The PGA Tour refers to support from technology company Genius Sports as “essential” to its Integrity Program. Spain is very relevant in European golf and it has acted as a benchmark on most occasions. Meta-attention in golfers is resource based, with metacognitive reflections of logistic and shot resources that facilitate attentional control. Networking is particularly critical for the career advancement of women, and golf is a recognized networking activity in the business world. Golf participation is comprised of activities likely to be beneficial to golfers’ health and wellbeing, including regular walking and social interactions. Spain is a European leader as a golf tourism destination, and Andalusia is the region that receives the most tourism in this sector. Same as golf, the law regulating betting activities is not obligated to wait until society decides whether Esports is a sport or not.
