It may have started as a bit of a joke but finally, one man’s dream has come true. You may not have heard the name of Mark Johnson before but he will now be carrying the bag for Sergio Garcia for one day at least.
Johnson’s dream came true following a twitter campaign that spanned 205 days. Using the hashtag #letmecaddieforyou throughout this time, he sent the world number 15 a series of tweets begging for the chance to carry the Spaniard's bag.
Throughout his witty tweets, the fan developed a strong following. Whilst many thought it may not happen, his dream finally came true on the 206th day when Sergio Garcia finally replied.
Sergio Garcia offered Johnson the chance of a lifetime. Finally succumbing to the campaign, Garcia announced that Johnson will hold the bag at the Pro-Am of the British Masters at Close House in September.
It not only shows us that perseverance pays off but it also confirms Garcia as a fan favourite. So if you want your dreams to come true remember, if at first, you don’t succeed, try 205 times and you might get lucky. Nice one Mark.
