Training load monitoring has been integrated into a variety of sports at a high level over the past decade. However, it has been presented by various authors that golfer’s sustain injury caused by overuse of specific sites of the body. This is done without knowledge of golf specific training loads and little academic research into training load monitoring within golf. Therefore, it is reasonable to suggest that the topic of load monitoring in golf should be researched, as load monitoring in other sports has been researched. Such studies have lead to the quantification of load and acute chronic workload ratios by academics. Two literature reviews; one on injury in golf and one investigating training load monitoring in other sports preceded a set of semi structured interviews with subjects working as coaches, doctors, physiotherapists and players within international golf. The purpose of the semi structured interviews was to discuss topics relating to golfing load, summarise the opinions of the experts on those topics and define the importance of each topic relating to a golf specific load monitoring tool.
