Abstract: The primary purpose of this study was to determine whether there were similar personality patterns among women amateur golfers. The secondary purpose was to compare the group of women amateur golfers with a group of women Pan-American athletes whose scores on the Edwards Personal Preference Schedule were reported by Neal. The Edwards Personal Preference Schedule was administered to subjects from two groups of women amateur golfers. An amateur golfer was defined as one who had a handicap of eight or less and who qualified to participate in USGA tournaments. One group was composed of thirteen collegiate amateur golfers who were currently enrolled in a college or university. The second group was composed of twenty amateur golfers who were members of the Virginias' and Carolinas' golf teams who compete bi-annually. The Kruskal-Wallis one-way analysis of variance was used to determine if differences in personality existed among amateur golfers.
