Golf Is Hard
One of golf's most popular and funny personalities reveals the ups and downs of a life playing the world's most infuriating sport.

Professional golfer Andrew "Beef" Johnston has played in the world's biggest tournament, won big-money events, and sunk monster putts while fans were booming out his nickname: "BEEEEEEF!" On the downside, Beef has also duffed it, thinned it, and shanked it like every single person who's ever played the game. Because no matter who you are, golf can make you look like an idiot.

Golf is Hard reflects on Beef's early years at his local Pitch & Putt to his stellar career playing against the best on the greatest courses on the planet, taking you inside the world of professional golf like no book before. With painfully honest stories, Beef delves into the pressure of the profession, but also shares golfing advice and side-splitting behind-the-scenes insights to bring a new perspective to the game. What is Tiger Woods really like in the locker room? How did it feel to hit one of the worst shots in golf history in front of millions of viewers during The British Open? And just how many clubs has Beef broken through fits of rage and frustration during his illustrious career?

This is a book for everyone who has ever loved and loathed the game in equal measure but managed to see the funny side. After all, golf is really hard, so you might as well have a laugh about it along the way.

About the Author

Andrew "Beef" Johnston is not your average golfer; he grew up in Finchley, north London, and started playing the game at the age of four at his local Pitch & Putt, before joining his local club, North Middlesex, where he is still a member. A stellar junior career led to him turning pro in 2011, and his eye-catching performance at the 2016 British Open propelled him to international stardom and cult status among golf fans, the same year he won the Open de Espana on the European Tour. He hosts the award-winning podcast Beef's Golf Club.
