Does G-Mac wear the same outfit everyday?... Dude go buy some gear— Steve Elkington (@elkpga) July 19, 2013
McDowell was not amused:

G-Mac quickly added this:
Sorry for the bite guys. Used to follow Elk but couldn't handle the bitterness any more. I don't generally glorify insults. #twittertrolls— Graeme McDowell (@Graeme_McDowell) July 19, 2013
I say: Good for McDowell. Yes, what Elkington wrote that set off Graeme seems pretty tame. But Elkington has a long history of sniping at fellow golfers. He did it before there was Twitter, now he does it publicly because of Twitter. Elkington is someone who says exactly what he's thinking; he's brutally honest, he doesn't pull any punches, he talks (or types) spontaneously without much thought for those he's spouting off about - even when speaking (or tweeting) publicly about a peer. In other words, he's a jackass. McDowell finally had enough.
