Andrew “Beef” Johnston signs a man’s belly, continues to be a fan favourite

By Alex Myers
Like “Linsanity” in the NBA, “Beefsanity” in golf didn’t quite last the way fans hoped it would. After a maiden European Tour win in 2016 prompted an instant classic interview in which he said he just wanted to “get hammered,” Andrew “Beef” Johnston was a breakout star at the Open Championship a few months later. His popularity travelled to the U.S. when he played in the PGA Championship the following month and he earned his PGA Tour card for the next season, but hasn’t quite stayed in the limelight.

That doesn’t mean he’s not still beloved, especially in his home country. Playing at this week’s British Masters, the affable Englishman won the pre-tournament Hero Challenge on Tuesday night, and on Wednesday, the man known for enjoying a pint or three signed a fan’s beer belly. Have a look:

He said he’d never wash it off 🤣 cheers for the support 👊🏼

We’re guessing the fan will eventually wash the “BEEEEEEF” off, but guarantee he’ll be screaming that the rest of the week.
