  • An analysis of swing factors when taking either an uphill or downhill stroke, Daisuke ICHIKAWADaisuke Ichikawa, Takeru Suzuki, Tateo Inoue, Hideyo Nishigai, John Patrick Sheahan, Isao Okuda, World Scientific Congress of Golf 2018,   2018 07 11 , University of the Fraser Valley (CAN)
  • Professional golfers tend to putt over a target when putting with their dominant, Takeru Suzuki, Yoshiaki Manabe, Hiroshi Arakawa, John Patrick Sheahan, Isao Okuda, Daisuke IchikawaA, World Scientific Congress of Golf 2018,   2018 07 11 , University of the Fraser Valley (CAN), Purpose: We theorized that the fine putting skill of professional golfers could only be assessed through comparison with novice golfers using a challenge to stop a ball on a putting target from a certain distance. Furthermore, we took into account that professional golfers have great experience putting with their dominant hand, so we compared this with putting ability in the non-dominant hand to investigate if the motor skill is transferred. The accumulated data was used as a performance indicator for distance and direction. The experiment was conducted with the hypothesis that professional golfers would have a high ability to accurately stop the ball on or near the target with their dominant hand stroke and also have a higher ability with their non-dominant hand stroke than novice golfers have with either their dominant or non-dominant hand stroke. Methods: Participants were 11 collegiate students (Novice group: NG) who had no experience in golf and 9 professional golfers (pro group: PG). All participants were right handed players. The small target (25 cm2 square box) was 2m from the putting position. Participants used a TRANSAM CNC MILLED putter (LYNKS, USA) head that can be used for both right and left-handed putting, and the same golf ball. Each side of putting was performed 15 times alternating each putt between sides making a total of 30 putts each trial. Only one trial was performed a day. The first trial started with putting from the right side and the second trial from the left side. Each following was started with putting from the opposite side of the preceding trial (first trial right to left and second trial left to right and so forth). All conditions were the same for each trial except for the alternation of which putting side was first. The participants completed 4 sessions (S1 to S4) of the putting trial in one week meaning that two trials started from the right side and two started from the left side. The far side was defined as a positive value, the near side a negative value, the right side a positive value, and the left side a negative value. After measuring the positive or negative distance we then converted it to absolute data as the sum of distance of the 15 putts (A: Total Distance Variability). The right and left distance was also calculated by the same formula (B: Total Directional Variability). The diagonal distance calculated from the distance of A and B to the target is defined as Total Linear Variability (C). Statistical analysis was performed using a paired t-test for the difference of right and left-handed putting in each group (NG and PG). Multi-fractional ANOVAs was used for a comparison among session (S1 to S4) values. A non-paired t-test was used for the difference of each group in the 3 types of distance variability (A to C). Results: Total Distance Variability (A) in PG was significantly less than NG from S1 to S4 in both putting sides. Total Directional Variability (B) in PG was significantly less from S2 to S4 in both putting sides. Total Linear Variability (C) in PG was also significantly less from S1 to S4 in both putting sides. Table 1 shows the variability of D1 and D2 in PG and NG in right and left-handed putts. The percentage of positive distance (D1) in PG in right-handed putts was the highest value (85.9%). On the other hand, the percentage of negative distance (D2) in PG right-handed putts was lowest (14.1%). Discussion The results showed that the Total Distance Variability in PG was significantly smaller than NG, meaning PG possess high motor skill ability. Furthermore, distance data showed that when data was analyzed when separated into over (further than the target) and short (not reaching the target) data, the distance of the right-handed putts of PG were significantly over compared to NG, and also significantly over compared to left-handed putts in PG. In right-handed putts of PG 85.9% were over the target and that percentage didn't significantly change over the 4 sessions. In NG 54.7% of putts finished over the target and 45.3% short of the target. This shows that in PG variability in distance to the target is small but that PG tended to over-shoot the target even when attempting to accurately stop the ball on the target. This means that due to experience gained from many hours of practice, PG have a strong perceptive bias that placing the ball behind the target is important for attaining consistent direction. In this study, it is believed that such a result was due to the trial being conducted in a low-pressure environment, and we have labeled this strong perceptive bias as "Golfers Bias". However, this bias was not apparent in the non-dominant hand and it was made clear there was no change across the 4 trial sessions. Practical Application/ Clinical Relevance: When putting from a distance of approximately 2m, it is thought that golfers do not contemplate how hard they should strike the ball with the aim for it to stop at a particular distance, but rather are repeating an attained automated action. It is thought that by understanding that expert golfers reduce the chance of missing putts in a high-pressure environment by consistently over-shooting the target in a low-pressure environment.
  • Physical fitness tests of evaluating knee extensor muscle strength and size in university freshmen male students, Tomohiro Yasuda, Daisuke Ichikawa, ACSM's 63rd Annual Meeting,   2016 06 01 , The American College of Sports Medicine, Introduction: It is well known that the size and strength of skeletal muscle decreases with increasing age (sarcopenia), notably in the knee extensor muscles. Recent studies have indicated that university students in Japan have low levels of physical activity, and that muscle strength of the lower extremities decreases every year. Therefore, physical fitness for university students should be focused on the size/strength of the knee extensor muscles. However, an appropriate physical fitness test to evaluate knee extensor muscle strength and size in university students has not been designed. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between knee extensor muscle strength and size and physical fitness results in university freshmen male students. Methods: University students from the faculty of science and engineering in Toyo University participated in the study (N=116). The muscle thickness (MTH) of 104 healthy men (aged 18-20 years) was measured at the anterior half of thigh length; they performed maximal voluntary isometric strength (MVC) of knee extensors. Physical fitness [30-second chair stand (CS-30) test, standing broad jump (SBJ), handgrip and thigh girth at 50% of thigh length (mid-thigh girth)] were also measured. Results: The following were similar to the standard values of the overall Japanese population for the same age group: age (18.2 ± 0.5 years), standing height (1.71 ± 0.48 m), body mass (62.9 ± 7.9 kg), body mass index (BMI, 21.6 ± 2.6), MVC (41.4 ± 12.2 kg), MTH (52.3 ± 6.6 mm), CS-30 (33.1 ± 4.3 reps), SBJ (2.13 ± 0.20 m), handgrip (41.2 ± 6.4 kg) and mid-thigh girth (50.8 ± 4.3 cm). Knee extensor MVC was correlated with SBJ (r=0.361, p<0.001) , hand grip (r=0.523, p<0.001) and mid-thigh girth (r=0.401, p<0.001), but not with CS-30 test (r=0.126, p>0.05). Knee extensor MTH was correlated with handgrip (r=0.317, p<0.001) and mid-thigh girth (r=0.632, p<0.001), but not with SBJ (r=0.038, p>0.05) and CS-30 test (r=0.145, p>0.05). Conclusions: Our results indicated that the measurements of handgrip and mid-thigh girth are useful methods for evaluating knee extensor muscle strength and size, and thus they could play an important role in the physical fitness of university freshmen male students for the prevention of sarcopenia and to maintain an active life in the future.
  • ViPR functional training for competitive university golfers influence on TrackMan and physiological index during golf pre-season, Daisuke Ichikawa, Nobumitsu Yuhara, Tsunehiro Fuchiwaki, John P. Sheahan, Isao Okuda, 2014 Golf Science: A World Scientific Congress of Golf,   2014 09 05 , Griffith University (AUS), Functional training has become very popular in golf training. There is variety of training equipment in the market, and previous studies reported the effect of functional training on golf using various equipment. One of the newest equipment for functional training is ViPR (Vitality Performance Reconditioning). The ViPR consists of a cylinder-like rubber tube (4 to 20 kg) with two handles mounted on it. The shape of the ViPR allows the trainee to move it in various ways with a tight grip. Because it is relatively new to the market, there is no previous scientific study on the effect of the ViPR. Thus, the purpose of this study is to scientifically investigate whether ViPR training is an effective method of training for competitive golfers.
  • Biomechanical changes by medicine ball training on skilled golfers., Isao Okuda, John P. Sheahan, Daisuke Ichikawa, 2014 Golf Science: A World Scientific Congress of Golf,   2014 09 05 , Griffith University (AUS), One of the popular training methods to improve sport performance is medicine ball (MB) training. MB training can increase the speed of trunk rotation or the stability of the trunk. Theoretically, both of those changes in a kinetic chain of the body can cause a positive effect on golf swing mechanics; however the effect of the training on golf performance is still unclear. Thus, the purpose of this study was to clarify the effects of 8 weeks of MB training on golf performance for skilled golfers.
