It takes a lot to rile Andrew Johnston.

'Beef' is famously one of golf's most laid-back and personable characters. 

However, even he has his limits - and he demonstrated exactly where he draws the line on social media this afternoon.

• OFFICIAL - 2020 Ryder Cup postponed

That prompted 'Beef' to hit out at the PM. He tweeted: 

In response to one user who told him to "stick to golf", he replied:

In a reply to another user, 'Beef' called the parking charges "actually insane", adding: "I can't accept it."
