Gainey: "They just went in."

Tommy Gainey started the final round of the McGladrey Classic trailing 54-hole leaders Jim Furyk and tournament host Davis Love III by seven strokes. In the spirit of 2012, the winner of the event didn’t come from the last pairing on Sunday. Gainey became the fourth player of the season to overcome a deficit of at least seven.

The 37-year-old journeyman, who is known as “Two Gloves” for wearing two black gloves from tee to green (yes, he even putts with them), fired a course record 10-under 60 at the Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club in St. Simons Island, Ga. He had a 15-footer on no. 18 to post The Magical Number (59). Strangely enough, Gainey, who usually gives his putts a good run, left this one short of the cup.

Tommy: I never take off my gloves, mwahaha!

After Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey putted out on No. 18 at TPC Scottsdale, he first patted Mark Wilson, who was reading his birdie putt for the win in regulation, on the back for encouragement. Then, he pointed at the crowd all around the green and clapped, thanking the fans for their support at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Only ten minutes earlier, Gainey had tripled No. 17, putting a costly blemish on an otherwise great week and squandering away $246,000. But Tommy Two Gloves walked away with at least 246,000 more fans and became golf’s latest folk hero.

Cheesehead!

When final-round play was suspended due to darkness on Sunday evening at TPC Scottsdale, Mark Wilson, who won last month’s Sony Open, held a two-stroke lead over third-round leader Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey, Jason Dufner and Vijay Singh at the (Phoenix) Waste Management Open. Wilson, a native of Wisconsin, wore a yellow visor and green shirt in support of the Green Bay Packers. He even broke out a cheesehead hat on No. 16 during the third round this morning (because of the frost delays, third round play wasn’t completed until Sunday afternoon).
