Secondary visual skills for golfers aren’t necessarily any less important than core visual skills, though they are not quite as central to what is needed for a racer to be successful.
Secondary visual skills for golfers include:
- Eye tracking: This allows one to keep their eye on the ball as it flies or rolls across the green.
- Eye focusing: Improved focusing gives increased ability to quickly switch between focusing on near and far objects. Especially for putting, this is an incredibly important skill to improve.
- Contrast sensitivity: This skill lets one detect subtle differences in color that might not be apparent to others. On the golfing green, improved contrast sensitivity can help a golfer get a better sense of the green, such as whether the grass is wet or dry, and adjust his approach appropriately.
