To have good performance in golfing. It requires good sports vision.
Sports vision that are important for golfing are:
- Fixation or gaze stabiliation
- Quiet Eye
- Good 3D vision
- Good spatial judgement
- Pursuits or eye tracking
Our eyes are not always frozen on one target, it ususally makes micro-saccades, which are small jumps around the target. Good fixation and quiet eye can help you focus as close to the target as possible for putting.
Good 3D vision and spatial judgement can help with seeing how far and high the ball is, for getting it into the hole accurately.
Tracking will help you find the golf ball easier as you can follow through with its course easier.
