The safety of study participants is our top priority. The trial is approved and periodically reviewed by an Institutional Review Board (IRB), which includes doctors, administrators, ethicists, and members of the general public. The safety of clinical trials is reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
Before enrolling in a clinical trial, the investigator will explain the purpose of the trial, its expected benefits, any possible risks or side effects, and what your role will be. This is the time to ask questions! If you want to join the trial, you must sign the informed consent documents. You can leave a clinical trial at any time without penalty.
For further information, see Understanding Clinical Trials.

Professional golfers often have unique access to interventions and support systems that include physical, nutritional, and behavioral health. It is important to describe what touring professional golfers today are doing to optimize their physical and mental ability to compete. This research study aims to investigate resistance strength training, lifestyle variables, and alternative interventions in touring professional golfers and will involve a one-time anonymous survey hosted on REDCap, with a target enrollment of 450. The survey will take approximately 5 minutes to complete.
