Abstract

Sports psychology plays a vital role in contributing to the performance of an athlete. This research examined the level of goal orientation towards the performance of the Junior Golfers in Malaysia and its relationship with their achievement. Task and Ego Orientation in Sport Questionnaires (TEOSQ) was administered to measure goal orientation aspects. A purposive sample of 80 junior golfers who participated in the 2002 national junior golf circuit was employed for this study. The findings showed that Junior Golfers were more Task orientated rather than Ego oriented. There was a significant correlation between Ego Orientation and Nett Score Achievement. However, there were no correlations between Task, Ego Orientation and Gross Score Achievement as well as between Task orientation and Nett Score Achievement. The findings of this study has implications to education policy, sports trainers and athletes. It is recommended that future studies examine a larger sample of Golfers from different levels or athletes from different types of sport. Qualitative research should be conducted in addition to quantitative research to get a deeper understanding of the athletes' thoughts during competition. A comparative study between psychological profiles of Malaysian athletes and other successful international athletes is also recommended.
