A research lab isn’t the first place most student-athletes go for an edge in their sport. But that’s exactly where Daisy-May Kenny, a senior golfer at the University of West Florida, found her sweet spot. Kenny, an exercise science major, developed a research project in biomechanics focusing specifically on her teammates’ golf swings. Last fall, she collaborated with strength and conditioning coaches at West Florida to build a five-week workout program for her team that was tailored to the unique rotating movements of a golfer. She gathered data on each of her teammates’ swings before and after the “intervention” and hopes to get a chance to present her findings at scientific conferences. The researcher’s most important discovery? “I’ve learned what I want to do in the future,” Kenny says.
