Halvstrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes med fyra kvinnliga och en manlig före detta professionella golfspelare på internationell nivå. Genom en kvalitativ innehållsanalys (Hassmén & Hassmén, 2008) framkom 18 överliggande teman fördelade på barriärer (6), resurser (7) och strategier (5). Framträdande teman som framkom både som barriär och resurs var identitet, frivillighet vid avslut, förberedelser och socialt stöd. Strategierna förberedelser, hitta nya sysselsättningar, socialt stöd, dra nytta av golfkarriären och att ha ett optimistiskt synsätt identifierades som användbara. Temana diskuteras utifrån det teoretiska ramverket samt tidigare forskning. Förslag på framtida forskning samt implikationer ges.
