The 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.
Garcia finally replied in January, and Johnson got the gig as his bagman at the British Masters Pro-Am event at Close House on Wednesday.
"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.
"The highlight was just meeting him. He's just a good lad. I told him now to go and win the competition."
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.
