Sergio Garcia is a 37-year-old professional golfer who has won nine PGA events over his career dating back to 1999. An established golfer like Garcia likely sticks with a single caddie who knows his strengths and weaknesses.

However, in September of 2017 during the pro-am of the British Masters, Garcia will have a new caddie walking with him and helping him pick his clubs.

His name? Mark Johnson.

There is absolutely no reason why you’d recognize his name. Johnson isn’t some famous golfer or celebrity or former athlete. Instead, he’s just a regular guy on Twitter with 207 followers as of 12:00 pm EST on January 31st, 2017.

Oh, he’s also an irregular Twitter user in that he tweeted at Garcia 206 times about wanting to be the 37-year-old’s caddie before Garcia finally caved.

“I noticed him the first time from the first tweet he posted at me,” Garcia told ESPN Tuesday at Emirates Golf Club, where he is playing in this week’s Omega Dubai Desert Classic. “I thought it was quite funny and it was very sincere, and obviously I was wondering how long it was going to keep going.

“Angela [Garcia’s fiancée] and I, we kind of talked about it, and I said, ‘Well, how long should we make him wait?’ And we decided that probably 200 days, if he held it for 200 days, it would probably make the cut.”
