Prime cuts: The best of Andrew 'Beef' Johnston

Andrew Johnston, 'Beef' to friends and fans alike, had Royal Troon in the palm of his hand during this year's Open Championship. Here are the best soundbites from golf's new funnyman.

Now

Kevin Maguire Golf 

The "feels like" temperature is supposed to rise above 100 degrees this afternoon here at Baltusrol, site of this week's 98th PGA Championship. Maybe that's why the likes of world No. 2 Dustin Johnson is getting his work in early on a Monday.

That's one seriously consistent divot pattern from Jordan Spieth as he prepares for this week's 98th PGA Championship here at Baltusrol Golf Club.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

Here is the updated United States Ryder Cup points standings. The top eight on this list after The Barclays in four weeks will qualify for the team.

Kevin Maguire Golf 

With Jhonattan Vegas' RBC Canadian Open win, he earned his way into the PGA Championship, which starts Thursday at Baltusrol outside New York City. Those who didn't get in to the year's final major ... yet? Here's the list of alternates provided by the PGA of America: 1. Alex Cejka 2. Scott Brown 3. Brian Harman 4. Spencer Levin 5. Jason Gore 6. Sean O'Hair 7. Patrick Rodgers 8. Chad Campbell Interesting (maybe only to me) to note they didn't go down to the ninth alternate, this being the 25th anniversary of John Daly's PGA Championship victory in 1991 at Crooked Stick.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Steve Wheatcroft is the epitome of a guy who's grinded for everything in his career. Almost quit the game last year. Hate to see that.
