There are crazy sports fans, and then there are fans of Sergio Garcia. For example, take Mark Johnson from the U.K. Last July, he began a Twitter campaign to caddie for the Spaniard with this fateful tweet:
@TheSergioGarcia you’re my number one golfer please can I caddie for you when your caddie can’t make it cheers ??

In an unexpected turn of events, Sergio finally responded with this cryptic message:
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
He then offered Johnson the opportunity of a lifetime: a loop at the British Masters Pro-Am in September.
@TheSergioGarcia Top man Sergio ? Wednesday 27th September its in the diary!

Take a look at some of these desperately hilarious #Letmecaddieforyou tweets Johnson sent over the nearly seven-month ordeal:

Big tip of the cap to Sergio for making this bloke’s day!
