Andrew 'Beef' Johnston has made quite the impression after bursting onto the PGA Tour in 2016 -- and his Happy Gilmore antics are only just getting started.

Alongside 1991 PGA Championship winner John Daly, Johnston is set to contest a 'birdie, beer and beef triathlon' in 2017 after being challenged by Australian Steven Bowditch.

ESPN can only assume the triathlon will likely contain lots of drinking, meat-eating and golf. And then maybe some more drinking.

It is no secret that Johnston, who shone at this year's Open Championship, loves a drink or two.

He promised to get the beers in after earning his PGA Tour card in September, and in June said he would be 'drunk for a week' if he won the U.S. Open.

But now he will be drinking for bragging rights after picking Daly to contest the triathlon against Bowditch and 2008 Ryder Cup star Boo Weekley.

Johnston and Daly will fancy their chances against Bowditch, who produced the worst Strokes Gained on the tour last season, finishing 214-over par for the year.

Johnston on the other hand enjoyed a successful 2016, winning the Open de Espana in April and finishing tied for seventh in the BMW PGA Championship on the European Tour, pocketing a cool €115,800.
