Andrew Johnston

Southport, England

ANDREW JOHNSTON: That was it, really. Such fine margins, very close, yeah, just not quite there.

Q. (Inaudible.)
ANDREW JOHNSTON: I got in after my round yesterday and then showed a poll saying, am I an inspiration or a clown? And I kind of went off a little bit. It annoyed me. And I had a few people message me and said, "Maybe you should listen to the show." And it was actually worse listening to it. I don't mind being criticized. I think it's good taking people's opinions, to see what I can do better, you know, and if they put a poll out saying, maybe I spend too much time with the fans or I don't concentrate, would he play better, this and that, I'd understand that, I'd totally get that. But when he's taking piss out of my face, my teeth, and stuff like that, I think it's bang out of order.

Q. (Inaudible.)
ANDREW JOHNSTON: No, not really. I had a really good warmup on the range. And I felt really good going into it. So I was disappointed the way I hit it for the first few holes, because I had a really good feeling on the range. It had nothing to do with it. It's like out my head. I just find, yeah, I just find it bad. Like you can criticize, but don't take the piss.

Q. (Inaudible.)
ANDREW JOHNSTON: Yeah, that was a lovely comment, Thomas Bjorn made a lovely comment, Darren Barker did. There were loads of people that did, and I can't thank them enough.

Q. (Inaudible.)
ANDREW JOHNSTON: Yeah, hundred percent, the fans have been great. Everywhere I go the fans have been brilliant and I absolutely love it. I've never dreamt of being able to walk down 18 on a Sunday Open. It means the world to me. It's the best thing.

Q. (Inaudible.)
ANDREW JOHNSTON: Yeah, you've got to stand up. Would you take it if someone said, your beard looks ... and you've got .... up teeth, would you take that? Exactly.

Q. (Inaudible.)
ANDREW JOHNSTON: Yeah. Capitalize on it, but I stand up for myself, what I said that's it. It's done now. They won't hear another word out of me from it. That's it.

Q. (Inaudible.)
ANDREW JOHNSTON: I've got to wait to see if I get in first. I think I will. I was 112th coming into this week. I don't know what I'll be after this week. Hopefully I'll get in. It's a great event. I had a great time last year, you want to be playing against these guys, who are the best in the world.

Q. (Inaudible.)
ANDREW JOHNSTON: That's the exact word. It's close, man. I've grinded so hard these four weeks trying to find something, just find an edge, and I just haven't found it. But I've been really proud the way I've battled the last four weeks and battled this week. Yeah, it just hasn't been there. But I know it's not far, and you've just got to stay positive.

Q. (Inaudible.)
ANDREW JOHNSTON: Yeah, I mean it's amazing. Coming in I was excited to see what kind of response. But when I'm actually here it just amazes me every time. The people are just great.
