Andrew “Beef” Johnston reveals return to European Tour

Andrew “Beef” Johnston is ready to quit the lucrative world of the PGA Tour and return to full-time competition on the European Tour.

The 28-year-old revealed details of his protracted move back to London on the eve of his second-straight appearance in the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow in Charlotte.

“Unless you are in the top-5o it is difficult to play both Tours,” said the current World No. 1o8.

“I wanted to come over here and learn, and try and make myself a better golfer and I think I have learned a lot of good things by coming over here but I am going to play more in Europe.”

Johnston’s maiden PGA Tour season has seen him make the cut eight out of 12 times, with his best finish T10th in the Puerto Rico Open. He also earned $US 64,500 in his last event, sharing 27th place at The Open.

“I have struggled over here and the only tournament I felt I actually played well was Puerto Rico but it has been hard as I have not swung the club that good though it does feel like it is getting back,” he said.

“So, the last few months have been really positive as I felt I played nice at Wentworth, the U.S. Open, French Open, Scotland and The Open and it has been really close.

“I have just been trying to keep batting away.

“You realise the PGA Tour is a tough tour as there are so many good players. It is like Europe as well but then the courses vary but it is completely different so it I tough coming and learning that.”
