'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.

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