Graeme McDowell is pleading with a Scotsman so he can give him the coveted gmac Twitter username.
The 2010 US Open champion, who is currently @Graeme_McDowell, joined the social networking platform in October 2009, some two-and-a-half years after Graeme MacLachlan from Glasgow nabbed gmac.
Last week, McDowell – who has the G-Mac Apparel range and charity The G-Mac Foundation – tweeted MacLachlan.
.@gmac Would love to chat RE grabbing this handle from you. Any interest?— Graeme McDowell (@Graeme_McDowell) March 6, 2017
Another guy, Gary McNally (@GMac054), put his username up for offer.
Mine's for sale at half the price G 😉— Gary McNally (@GaryMcNally_) March 6, 2017
But so far, McDowell’s request has fallen on deaf ears.
While MacLachlan hasn’t tweeted since December 27, he has replied to accounts since McDowell’s tweet on March 6, meaning that he’s clearly playing hard to get.
However, it will be interesting to see how much McDowell would be willing to stump up to get the desired name.
