Title:
The effects of acute and chronic ketosis on golf accuracy

Abstract:
Exogenous ketones, a synthetic version of the ketones produced by the body as a byproduct of fat breakdown, provide more energy on a molecule by molecule basis than glucose and are produced as a supplement to possibly help neurological diseases and improve motor learning. In this study, Pruvit ketone supplement were used. The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of acute ketosis and of chronic ketosis with golf practice on putting accuracy. The hypothesis is that acute ketosis would not improve putting accuracy, but chronic ketosis would improve putting accuracy. Putting accuracy was tested in a fatigued state to increase reliance on the central nervous system. Participants included 8 individuals, aged 35-55, that were recreational golfers. The study was double-blinded; supplements were sealed in white packets with the label “A” or “B” to blind both the investigator collecting data and participants to the supplement in each packet. The grouping of participants for the study was randomized. Thefindings of the study show that neither acute ketosis nor chronic ketosis has a discernible (p >0.05) effect on putting accuracy.
