The game of golf relies heavily on a person’s mental state. Remaining calm, cool, and collected is integral to the way a golfer performs during a round.

Yente Van Doren, a professional golfer from Belgium, uses the sport as daily motivation to get out of bed in the morning. Picking up the sport at only four years old, he recently had the opportunity to join a pro tour in 2019.

Although Van Doren has made golf the centre of his universe, the sport now also stands as a method to help him through the pandemic.
