Golf cult hero keen to return to Perth

England's Andrew 'Beef' Johnston says he'll be back for next year's World Super 6.

England's Andrew 'Beef' Johnston says he'll be back for next year's World Super 6.

Johnston missed the weekend cut, finishing at five-over after two rounds, with one horrendous hole on the opening day proving particularly costly.

The 28-year-old was sitting pretty at two-under after 10 holes of his first round before posting a nine on the par-four second.

He never recovered.

Johnston has become a crowd favourite on tour, with his big fuzzy beard and willingness to interact with the crowd helping him attract a legion of fans.

He earnt his nickname 'Beef' when he was just 12 years old after a friend said he looked like he had a steak on his head from a distance.

The world No.161 wants to return to the innovative Perth golf event next year.

"I'm a bit disappointed the way I played," Johnston said.

"But in realisation, the last four weeks have been real busy. I came here last minute, it was kind of tough

"I just said to my caddie on about the 16th hole today, I was frustrated.

"But you can't be too hard on yourself because you go from Malaysia - I didn't hit many balls there because of the heat - and then you come here last minute.

"We've had a great week seeing the different parts and doing cool stuff, so I've had a great week and I'll definitely be back."

Johnston said he would consider missing a lead-up event in order to be better prepared for next year's tournament in Perth.
