Daly: Beef couldn't drink whiskey like me

RSS

Andrew "Beef" Johnston is golf's newest folk hero.

But he's no John Daly, whose cult-like following is going 25 years strong.

According to Tim Rosaforte, the two icons first met in 2012 and hung out at last year's Turkish Open. With both men having a well-documented reputation for getting "hammered," there's a good chance you can guess what they bonded over.

But as Daly tells the story, the understudy has a long way to go before he's living that John Daly life.

“He thought he could drink whiskey like me,” Daly said. “That didn’t pan out too good. He tried to keep up, but just couldn’t.”

Perhaps Beef would be best served taking his own advice to "just be yourself."
