Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- Tommy Gainey was at the USC-Tennessee game Saturday, which is no surprise, given his allegiance to the garnet. But Gainey walked into Williams-Brice Stadium six days after a life-changing experience.
Last Sunday, Gainey rallied from seven strokes back to win the McGladrey Classic in Sea Island, Georgia. It was the first win on the PGA Tour for the Bishopville native.
In the first quarter of the Tennessee game, Gainey was introduced to the crowd which gave him a nice ovation.
Gainey says the win validates all the hard work he has put into his game over the years. But that doesn't mean he will put his career on cruise control. Tommy says the next step is to win multiple tournaments and contending in major events.
