Tommy Gainey turned in a steady effort in his first trip to Hyundai Tournament of Champions when he tied for sixth with Ricke Fowler at 8-under-par 211 due in part to his final-round 3-under-par 35-35=70.
It was an impressive outing, following a pattern of success in tournaments that border on the ocean. You may remember that Gainey picked up his first win at the end of 2012 on Sea Island before adding silly-season win at Pebble Beach to wrap up the year. He was under par in each of his three round, and only swallowed three bogeys for the entire week at a clip of one per round. His 90.74 percent GIR led the tournament. He now heads to the Sony Open to try and tackle the tight fairways of Waialae Country Club. Jan. 8 - 6:49 pm et
