Postman gets his day on Sergio Garcia's bagThe golf fan who tweeted Sergio Garcia for 206 days in a row finally got his day in the sun as his caddy.

Mark Johnson, a postman from Peterborough, messaged Sergio last year using the hashtag #Letmecaddieforyou.

"He was relentless. He was great today. We had a good time”, said Sergio.

Johnson said: "He got off to a birdie start so I'll take responsibility for that. But then I dropped his bag.

That was not to be, as Sergio missed the cut. But at least Johnson got his day on the bag, and missed the horrendous weather on Friday.
