Say this for Sergio Garcia: he makes time for his fans.
Last year an English mailman/Sergio superfan named Mark Johnson decided that he wanted to caddie for Garcia for one round, and began firing daily tweets at the 37-year-old Spaniard. Johnson punctuated his tweets -- which totaled 206 -- with the hashtag #letmecaddieforyou. Shockingly, Garcia eventually relented, and made the announcement in January.
Ok @markjohno6969 I think I found the perfect day for you to get a taste of carrying my bag & make your dream come true! Are you ready?— Sergio Garcia (@TheSergioGarcia) January 28, 2017
not today, don't worry!! Haha. It's going to be the Wednesday, Pro-am day of the British Masters, ok?— Sergio Garcia (@TheSergioGarcia) January 28, 2017
Johnson's big day arrived Wednesday at the British Masters, and the duo had a pleasant afternoon.
"He got off to a birdie start so I'll take responsibility for that. But then I dropped his bag," Johnson told BBC.
"He was relentless," Garcia said with a laugh. "He was great today. We had a good time."
