    Andrew Dodt was born in Australia in 1986 and started playing golf at the age of four, at Gatton Golf Club, which was close to his childhood home. Dodt had a highly successful amateur career, including a win at the 2007 Australian Amateur Stroke Play. As a result of these successes he turned professional, and joined the Asian Tour for the 2008 season. This seemed to be the start of a successful professional golfing career.

    Dodt’s first professional win came at the 2010 Avantha Masters, and he finished his first season at forty three in the Order of Merit.  Dodt spent 2014 playing the Asian Tour as he lost his card for the European Tour the previous season. Having regained his place on the European Tour, he seems to have recaptured some form in 2015 on his return to the European Tour, having experienced his first tour win in February 2015, at the True Thailand Classic. The key to Dodt’s improvement seems to be his consistency from tee to green, and some impressive recovery play.

    Away from golf Johnston enjoys spending time with his wife Ashleigh, who he married in 2013. He also has a major interest in fashion. A fan of all sports, Dodt also enjoys keeping fit, and enjoys listening to music.

    As of the end of 2014 Dodt has yet to play an event on the PGA Tour.
