The purpose of this study was to analyze the differences of physical fitness and examine the relationship with driver distance and average score in elite female golf players
100 female golf players were classified into general golf player (GGP, n=30), national golf player (NGP, n=30) and pro golf player(PGP, n=40). Subjects performed the physical fitness trial: lung function (FEV1, FVC), flexibility (shoulder rotation, trunk forward flexion, trunk backward extension), strength (back strength, hand grip strength, maximal strength), muscle power (peak power, sargent jump), muscle endurance (mean power, sit up, push up) and isokinetic strength (knee and trunk). One-way repeated ANOVA was used to evaluate the differences between three groups and pearson's correlation analysis was applied to examine the relationship between performance factor(driver distance and average score) and physical fitness.
The results of this study indicated that the NGP was significantly higher in trunk backward extension, sargent jump, push up and isokinetic trunk extension compare with the GGP (p<.05). Bench press 1RM and isokinetic trunk flexion were significantly higher in PGP than GGP and NGP (p<.05). There was a significant relationship between driver distance and peak power(r=.254), isokinetic trunk extension(r=.229). Also average score showed a significantly relationship with driver distance (r=-.276), bench press 1RM (r=-.310), push up (r=-.429), isokinetic trunk flexion (r=-.273) and isokinetic trunk extension (r =-.265).
National and pro golf players have higher level of physical fitness than general golf players. And driver distance and average score were strongly related with maximal strength, muscle endurance, isokinetic trunk strength, and peak power. Therefore, efficient and specific training program should be planned for performance improvement in elite female golf players.
Key words: female golf player, physical fitness, average score, driver distance
