    Research Help – Any Golf Fans Out There? Hello everyone,

    I am a student doing some research on less-mainstream sports fans. I was wondering if any of you golf fans can be so helpful as to answer a few of the questions below – even if it’s just 1 or 2 it would be EXTREMELY helpful. Just please include your first name, age and where you’re from in your response. Of course… if you want to answer all of them that would be great too !

    Thank you so much!

    -Allison

    first name, age, location?

    1- How dedicated of a golf fan are you? (Diehard, occasional follower, or in between) Explain.

    2- Briefly, tell me the story of how you became a fan of golf.

    3- Do you have a favorite golfer…? Why did you choose to become a fan of your current golfer…? Was that a personal decision or was it influenced by friends/family?

    5- What about golf do you find most interesting and compelling?

    6- Do you watch it on TV or in-person? Can you tell me how those experiences are different? How are they similar? – Which experience makes you feel closest to your fav. golfer or the sport of golf in general? Why?

    7- Describe your feelings/emotions while watching or following golf. What’s the overall experience like in the heat of the moment?
    -Hypothetically speaking, if you weren’t able to follow golf anymore – what would you miss most?

    8- What keeps you interested/watching/coming back for more?

    9- What has it added to your life? (personally, socially, etc.) Has it driven your mood, social life, vacation decisions, etc?

    10- Do you feel like being a fan of golf connects you to other people? How so? Why is that important?

    11- Do your friends/family also follow golf or do they follow other sports? – Do you think that sharing that connection to [golf or a passion for sports, in general (if they don’t follow the same sport)] brings you closer together or further apart? Explain.

    12- Tell me a story of your favorite golf/golfer moment – What happened? How did you react? How did you feel?

    13- Now tell me about a “lowest of low” moment. – What happened? How did you react? How did you feel?

    14- Do you think that experiencing the highs and lows of being a fan makes you feel closer to your fav. golfer/the sport of golf as a whole? Explain.
    – Why do they think you internalize these wins and losses so much?

    15- In your opinion, what does it mean to be a sports fan, in general? What are the characteristics/associations?

      1. Diehard. I play golf myself and I closely follow professional golf.

      2. My grandfather started me playing when I was 7 or 8 years old. He was an avid golfer.

      3. Yes, Tiger Woods. He always captured my attention when I was young and I loved his amazing golf talent and enjoyed watching him win a lot. That was a personal decision. My grandfather was a Phil Mickelson and Fred Couples fan, although he did like Tiger Woods too.

      5. The varying courses and challenges endured when playing.

      6. I regularly watch golf on TV and I have been to one professional tournament. Watching on TV allows you to see more action and more players, but attending a tournament gives you a unique feeling of being up close with some of the best athletes in the world and watching how amazing they are at playing golf. It’s also nice to admire the beauty of course architect.

      7. I’m usually calm but I always enjoy watching. There’s never a time when I’m bored watching golf. And in the biggest tournaments when my favorite golfer is in contention, it makes my heart beat faster because every shot matters so much and the pressure is so high. It’s a great enjoyment. If I wasn’t able to follow golf anymore, I would miss the thrill that I get from watching my favorite golfer win big tournaments.

      8. The thrill of pressure situations.

      9. Golf has taught me how important independence and self-reliance is. To be truly successful in life, one cannot always rely on or work with others…they have to be mature, independent, individual, and self-motivating.

      10. Of course…I feel more connected with some of the players and their lives, and I’ve also made new friends from being on my high school golf team. The sport of golf is usually represented by the most honest, mature, intelligent, and respectful individuals, and that’s something to be very proud of. Golfers should be valued more than most players of other sports.

      11. They do, but not nearly as much as me. They read golf news, but don’t watch golf on TV as much as I do. My dad, uncles and aunt play golf occasionally but maybe only a few times a year. Not nearly as much as I do. I think it brings us closer because we can have fun playing a sport together.

      12. I finally broke 80 last month in my final high school golf match. I had shot 80 three times in a row, making a few late mistakes that prevented me from shooting in the 70s. In the final match, I had the confidence in myself and executed my gameplan well, and I shot 78, my lowest score ever. My coach and teammates were very proud of me and it was a great moment that I will never forget.

      13. Hard to think of one specifically, but it relates to my answer in the previous question. In one of those rounds in which I shot 80, I was on pace to shoot 78 through 16 holes and ended up making a terrible mistake on the 17th hole. I hit my second shot far over the green, badly misjudged the distance, made double bogey, and failed to shoot in the 70s. I was furious at myself. But I transformed that into motivation…and like I told you, I ended up breaking 80 in the final match just a week later. It was a great feeling.

      14. Definitely. Even pros have periods of poor performance in addition to good performance, and since I play for my high school team, I definitely can understand what pros go through on a regular basis. Their performance means so much to them because golf is what they have chosen to do for their careers…golf means a lot to them. It’s their income source for some, but for the really good golfers…they are motivated to be among the best ever. No one wants to be unsuccessful at what they do.

      15. It means closely following and enjoying the sport. Characteristics? Joy, thrill, happiness, interest.

      You’re welcome! Good luck with your research and I’m glad I could help.
