WATCH: European Tour winner Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston can’t wait to get ‘hammered’


Andrew Johnston -- an Englishman who goes by the nickname "Beef" -- just wrapped up his first European Tour win on Sunday at the Spanish Open, beating Joost Luiten by a shot at Valderrama at 1 over par.

It's a big day for Johnston, of course, taking home his maiden title. It's a big paycheck. It's a big leap in the Official World Golf Ranking. It's the culmination of lots of hard work. He earned his European Tour card through the Challenge Tour -- their Tour equivalent -- in 2012 but lost his card. He then won twice on that tour in 2014 to win the money list and get back to the European Tour. He finished 70th in last season's Race to Dubai.

So the 27-year-old Johnston is going to head home to England and celebrate. And what's the first thing he's going to do?

"I can't wait to get back to North Middle(sex), yeah, get hammered, see my mother and my brother and spend time with my dad and just celebrate," Johnston said.

Amen, Beef.
