Erik Van Rooyen is the special guest on the new Sky Sports Golf podcast, explaining how he made the transition from a successful amateur to a European Tour winner with the help of a sports psychologist … and the music!

Van Rooyen joined host Josh Antmann earlier this year to discuss his golfing career, his amateur days at the University of Minnesota giving him the springboard to success in the pro ranks.

The South African made his winning breakthrough on the Sunshine Tour before claiming full playing rights on the European Tour for the 2018 season, but was denied some big wins by disappointing final rounds.

Van Rooyen crossed the finish line the following season at the Scandinavian Invitational, fending off European Ryder Cup star Matt Fitzpatrick, and he also posted his first top 10 in major at the PGA Championship.

The 31-year-old explains why he turned to a sports psychologist to improve his mindset and how music is a big part of his life, with Biffy Clyro a particular favorite!
