Mindfulness has been used in the past as a program of mental skills training in competitive sports. Several studies have reported the effects of mindfulness application in competitive sports. However, there are several factors in mindfulness training that may affect the training effect, and it is not clear how mindfulness training modulates brain activity before the action executed. Electroencephalography (EEG) has well real-time performance and can be used to measure the brain's operating mechanism during sport. In the past, brainwave research has proposed several brainwave components related to optimal performance, T3α, SMR and Fmθ. These components all have different operating mechanisms to help athletes achieve their ideal performance. Therefore, this study uses brain waves as an aid to explore whether mindfulness improves sports performance, whether it is related to the three brain wave components of T3α, SMR and Fmθ. This study recruited 22 amateur golfers and assigned them to the experimental group receiving a one-month, 8 hours mindfulness course, and the passive control group without receiving the course. The EEG putting test will be performed after the completion of the pre-preparatory course. The results of the study pointed out that the experimental group and the control group had no main effects and interactions on putting performance and EEG components such as T3α, SMR, and Fmθ. Conclusion: The findings of this study reflect the limitations of long-term intervention in the small-class system. In addition, the difficulty of conducting research between epidemics has caused the number of experimental samples to be too small, resulting in dilution of the statistical effect of the experiment.
