Abstract [en]

The objectives of this study were: (1) to examine the effects of instructional and motivational self-talk on self-efficacy in elite golf players; and (2) to examine the effects of instructional and motivational self-talk on performance in elite golf players. Participants involved were 9 elite golf players with a mean age of 20.4 years (SD = ± 1.1). A repeated measure design was implemented, and the putting experiment was completed in three sessions. Multiple one-way repeated measure analyses of variance revealed no significant differences across tries regarding self-efficacy and that instructional self-talk significantly improved performance compared to the baseline measure. Qualitative content analysis of after experiment debriefings revealed that participants found the task challenging, thought their self-talk affected their performance, and had issues with the absence of a hole. The results are discussed in relation to theory, previous research, and methodological issues. A revised version of the self-talk framework is suggested. Future research and practical applications of the results are suggested.

Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande studie var: (1) att undersöka effekterna av instruerande och motiverande self-talk på self-efficacy hos elit golfspelare; samt (2) att undersöka effekterna av instruerande och motiverande self-talk på prestation hos elit golfspelare. 9 elit golfspelare deltog med en medelålder på 20.4 år (SD = ± 1.1). En inomgruppsdesign med upprepade mätningar implementerades och puttningsexperimentet genomfördes i tre sessioner. Multipla envägs beroende variansanalyser avslöjade inga signifikanta skillnader mellan mätningar vad gäller self-efficacy och att instruerande self-talk signifikant ökade prestationen jämfört med baslinjemätningen. Kvalitativ innehållsanalys av den efter experimentella debriefingen visade att deltagarna upplevde uppgiften som utmanande, ansåg att deras self-talk påverkade deras prestation, och att frånvaron av ett hål var problematiskt. Resultaten diskuteras i relation till teoretiska ramverk, tidigare forskning, och metodiken i studien. En reviderad version av a framework of self-talk presenteras. Förslag på framtida forskning och praktiska implikationer ges.
