dc.description.abstract Background: This research study investigates the relationship between hand dominance and ocular dominance while putting and compares the success of crossdominant and same-dominant participants. Methods: Participants attempted sevenfoot putts using a putting simulation on an indoor-carpeted area. Putts were made binocularly and monocularly, right eye, then left eye. Putts for each condition were averaged based on the length to the hole (LTTH), measured in inches. LTTH measurements were taken after each putt from the leading edge of the golf ball to the closest edge of the hole for each putting simulation. A value of zero was given when the put went into the hole. Ocular dominance was determined with the Dolman Method. Hand dominance of the participants was attained via a questionnaire. Results: The data obtained includes ocular dominance, hand dominance and putting accuracy. The results yielded non-significant data for the success of a binocular putt compared to the putt attempted monocularly with the dominant eye only. Non-significant data was also revealed for the success of those who are cross-dominant compared to those who are same-dominant. When comparing success of the binocular putt compared to the monocular dominate eye putt, there was no statistically significant difference in length to the hole. Putting success for cross-dominate and same-dominate also showed no statistically significant difference in length to the hole. Conclusion: The relationship between hand dominance and ocular dominance while putting was evaluated by comparison of the performance measured by LTTH averages for three different scenarios, IV binocular putting, dominant eye putt, and the non-dominant eye putt for each participant. Unfortunately, the data collected yielded no clinical significance and further investigation with an increased number of participants is required. en_US
