title: Distinguishing the great from the good: A study of the World’s leading golfers
authors: Mansfield, Roger

keywords: Motivation, attitude, performance, golf

publisher: British Academy of Management
abstract: In this study 75 professional golfers were interviewed to determine what distinguishes great from good golfers. Golfers were divided into 3 categories according to career success (wins in golf tournaments). The same interview script was used in all of the interviews. We conclude that Elite Category A golfers (major championship winners) believe that motivation is the main ingredient to their success and that they are born with the motivation to succeed (motivation thus seen as a natural talent much as physical talent is also).
