Andrew Johnston barely goes by his first name anymore in the United States. He's just "Beef" to most American fans, with the chants raining down from all over for the 27-year-old Englishman.
Now Johnston is looking to get his 2016-17 PGA Tour card through the Web.com Tour Finals, the four-event series which starts this week in Cleveland at the DAP Championship. If Johnston can finish among the top 25 money earners in the four events, he'll earn his PGA Tour status for next season.
Johnston is easy to spot, and so, too, this week is his caddie, who has been given a bib for the DAP Championship with simply "Beef" on it. Usually, the name is the player's last name, but there's no need to do that with "Beef."

And if we can do this for other players, that would be awesome. For Tiger? A goat emoji, for starters.
