Mayo Clinic and Arizona State University are looking for golfers with a handicap of 20 or less to participate in a study on putting. You may be eligible to participate.
We are Scottsdale real estate agents who specialize in Arizona golf homes. Since welove the game of golf, this is an opportunity we had to share with you.
If you’re a golfer, you understand how important putting is to your overall score. Think about it just in terms of numbers.
Par is 72 on most courses, and putting in ‘regulation’ on every hole is considered 2 putting strokes – a total of 36 putts. Therefore putting is 50% of your game. Improving your putting by 25% can shave 9 strokes off your score.
The study that Mayo and ASU are conducting involves looking at golfers’ hand and wrist muscle movements while they putt.
Golfers age 18-75 with a handicap of 20 or less may be eligible to participate. If you sometimes get cramps or ‘yips’ when you putt, this is a study you’ll want to get involved in.
If you qualify, you’ll attend a two-hour session at the Jim Flick Performance Center at Desert Mountain Golf Club. You’ll also get feedback on your putting.
For more information call Dr. Charles Adler, M.D., Ph.D at Mayo Clinic at 480-301-4981 or Dr. Debbie Crews, Ph.D. at Arizona State University at 602-361-5355
