Graeme McDowell Addresses His Infamous 'American' Accent With Shane Lowry

Graeme McDowell Addresses His Infamous 'American' Accent With Shane Lowry

The gracious Graeme McDowell has admitted that any slagging he receives from Irish friends over his famous accent is probably deserved.

Fascination with McDowell's unique accent peaked five years ago after this landmark interview with PGAtour.com in which he rhetorically asked aloud "who is G Mac?", confessed that his biggest weakness was "a cold beer", suggested "teleportation" as his ideal superpower, and checked his bare arms for non-existent tattoos.

But we're still talking about that interview all these years later while many others profiles from PGA Tour.com have disappeared from public consciousness.

Today, the EuropeanTour.com conducted a Mr. and Mrs. style game with G Mac and his Offaly friend S Low, which was uploaded to twitter.


McDowell was asked questions by the man on the other side of the camera and he had to guess how Lowry, holding placards behind him, would answer them.

He correctly guessed that Shane Lowry would classify the famous accent as 'American' rather than Irish.

"That's a subject of much amusement for my Irish friends. And probably deservedly so," says McDowell.


G Mac (2010 US Open champ, lest we forget) was also gracious enough to admit that Lowry would take him in a fight, citing Lowry's background as a Gaelic football man.

NOTE: Unsurprisingly, the European Tour's decision to slap a tricolour emoji in their tweet prompted one complaint. James G was moved to point out that McDowell is Northern Irish and thus the tricolour should not be placed beside his name. Then another responder called James G "a prick" before James G responded by calling that man " a prick". James G is from Glasgow, which is where much of this stuff happens now.
