Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston signs with Golf Foundation
As ambassador for the UK golf charity
Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston has signed up as the first of a series of new ambassadors for the Golf Foundation to help promote this charity’s ‘Golf for All’ philosophy, which encourages young people of all abilities to enjoy all the benefits of golf.
Beef will put his name and positive personality behind the Golf Foundation’s national HSBC Golf Roots initiative that reaches 500,000 boys and girls in schools, communities and golf clubs each year, encouraging young people to ‘Start, Learn and Stay’ in the sport.
Brendon Pyle, Chief Executive of the Golf Foundation, said: “Beef’s excellent play on the golf course is exciting but, of course, it is also the way he plays the game which the Golf Foundation team loves. Through Skills for Life we value above all else making the game fun and welcoming for youngsters, while focus, resilience, sportsmanship, respect, and greeting others with a smile are attributes we are hugely keen to promote.”
The Foundation seeks to connect 50,000 kids to a playing experience at a golf club every year and is looking to create 15,000 regular golfers annually and 5,000 members. Good work!
