Abstract [en]

The applicability of natural scaling (Borg & Borg, 2001) in golf putting was examined in two experiments with skilled golfers as participants. Putting took place in a laboratory setting as well outdoors on real green, and players were instructed to use the Borg centiMax scale (CR-100 scale) for estimation and production during putts of different distances. The two studies showed convincingly that the participants easily could use psychophysical scaling during putting. It is suggested that beginners as well as advanced golfers might benefit from the scaling procedure.
