Was the anti-Twitter captain's account hacked?

U.S. Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin, who asked his players to avoid posting on their Twitter accounts during Ryder Cup week, apparently has encountered issues with his own Twitter account.

First, there was a message that said this: "Hold up! Sorry, the profile you were trying to view was suspended due to strange activity."

Then this: "Sorry, that page doesn't exist!"

Presumably, his account was hacked and then taken down, though what use is there any more for the Twitter user name RC_CAPTAIN_2010?
