sergio garcia agrees to let fan caddie for him

Sergio Garcia has made a very persistent golf fan's dream come true by inviting him to carry his golf bag later this season.

Mark Johnson's 206-day long Twitter campaign to become Garcia's caddie one day began last summer. After every tweet he sent the Spaniard, he hastagged each one with #Letmecaddieforyou.

Topics included tweets about his family, golf trips, wishing him happy birthday and complimenting him on his tournament play.

In December, he tweeted that he might be giving up on his dream - but he kept going long enough to get the response he'd be waiting for: 

Johnson will now caddie for Garcia in September at the British Masters Pro-Am.
