Abstract

The purpose of this pilot study was to determine whether muscle fatigue generated by a golf specific fatiguing protocol would have an effect on proprioception and kinematic parameters of both left and right hip knee and ankle joints during the six phases of the golf swing. Five healthy, right handed male subjects participated in this pilot study respectively. The participants were asked to perform 125 golf swings using various clubs whilst being recorded with a 3D Motion capture System. A subset of swings were calculated as Pre-Fatigue and Post Fatigue for evaluation purposes. All data was then analysed and the results compared using both descriptive and inferential statistics
