In this study, the effect of Interactive Metronome (IM) on spots confidence and putting performance was examined. The study employed an AB design, involving pre and posttesting, 2 participants completed the putting performance test with a putter, as well as the Sports Confidence Inventory (SCI). The participants completed the putting performance test for the A-phase of the study, yet during the B-phase the participants received 5- to 3-minute sessions of IM. The IM intervention was designed to train the participants to tap their hand in anticipation of a continuous auditory beat. The results indicate that IM training was one of the variables that led to an increased score on the putting performance test for both participants.
