In this interview, Andrew Johnston, known as “Beef”, explains that when he grew his beard, he was told that he should shave it, because it gave golf a bad image. He says:
“I grew it as a bit of fun and [my beard] was big. When I went to Spain I was actually going to get rid of it that week (…) but my social media went mad and I had quite a few messages saying like “Oh, your beard is bad for golf, it’s a bad image” (…) I was like, I’ll keep it now.”
With that comment, he’s won himself a devoted fan.
