Tour Report: “Two Gloves” Gainey eyes 59

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. — Tommy Gainey is rolling at The McGladrey Classic.

Gainey is 10 under thru 17 holes and needs a birdie at the 18th to shoot a 59.

He’s moved all the way to 16 under — aided by an eagle on the 15th — and leads Jim Furyk by three shots at Sea Island Golf Club.

Gainey is seeking his first win on the PGA TOUR. He won twice on the Tour in 2010.

Gainey, 86th on the PGA TOUR in strokes gained-putting, is 13th in that stat this week. He is 106th on the money list.

The McGladrey has a history of come-from-behind victories. Last season, Ben Crane made up a seven-shot deficit in the final 11 holes to catch Webb Simpson. Crane then beat Simpson in a playoff.
