Andrew Johnston has embraced the nickname “Beef”. In fact, he says that only his mother calls him Andrew at this point. And, on a drunken whim, he got a tattoo on his left shoulder that says “Beef Head”.
The 27-year-old has taken being Beef a step further by having all kinds of cuts of meat stamped on his 58-degree Titleist Vokey wedge. On the back, in red, Johnston had stamped rib eye, brisket, sirloin, tri-tip, flank, filet mignon, T-bone, porterhouse and skirt. It’s pretty awesome, even if the stamping doesn’t quite follow the cuts of beef on an actual cow.
The Englishman has won a lot of fans in 2016, starting with his win at the Spanish Open and his vow to get “hammered” afterward (which he did, in a pinata suit) at home, to soaking up Pittsburgh during the U.S. Open, to getting in the penultimate group on Sunday at the 2016 British Open.
