Implicit Association Test

Welcome to Golf IAT (Implicit Association Test) 1.0

Step 1 of 11

  • :
    This is an IAT (Implicit Association Test) and the objective is to make some observations about how player’s view and process specific information when facing certain golf shots on the course. Each player should try to mentally place themselves in the actual situation and describe the first thoughts that come to mind. Players can describe the shot type, ball flight, strategy, or any other playing thought that comes to mind, please be honest. There are 9 holes with Caddie Notes on each hole describing the on course situation. There are three open ended spaces to fill out on each hole and there is a 50 character limit for each answer. There are a few basic assumptions we are making about each shot, such as: - There are no wind or weather conditions to account for with these shots - The green speeds are on the faster side (around a 10 or 11 on the stimpmeter) - The lie is level unless otherwise described - The descriptions on length of the hole will be long, medium, or short, unless the actual yardage is given, to help keep then objective for all ability levels, so interpret these descriptions into a yardage that would be relative to your game. At the completion of the test there are six basic questions to fill out and you will be finished. Please enter your start time above just before going to the next page (Estimated time 10 to 15 minutes). Thank you for taking the time to participate in this study and please invite all ability level players through social media or email.
