Tommy Gainey has been added to the published field of this week's John Deere Classic. UPDATE: He's since officially passed on a spot in the field in favor of the Albertsons Boise Open on the Web.com Tour.
He was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Sean O'Hair withdrew. Gainey will be making his seventh start at TPC Deere Run where he's cashed three times, including a T12 in 2012. Saddled with Past Champion status, he's just 4-for-8 this season and still in pursuit of his first top 30. However, he's 49th on the Web.com Tour money list, so he can all but plan on competing in the Web.com Tour Finals to regain fully exempt status in the big leagues. Jul 6 - 12:50 PM

Tommy Gainey two-gloved his way to a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in today's opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

In the field on merit despite Past Champion status, the 39-year-old covered a lone bogey at the par-3 eighth hole with five birdies before coming to rest two swings in arrears of the clubhouse lead. Two of his birdies stretched just outside 10 feet, but his longest conversion of the day ran 14 feet for par at the par-4 fifth. He's 202nd in the FedExCup standings in what is his first season since 2010 that he wasn't fully exempt on the PGA TOUR, but the demotion hasn't been an issue. Gainey is also 40th on the Web.com Tour money list with three top 10s.

Tommy Gainey ripped The Lakes at Castle Hills for a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-31=63 in today's opening round of the Greater Dallas Open on the Web.com Tour, finishing with sole possession of the overnight lead.

The first round of any inaugural event serves as a learning opportunity, but today's lid-lifter in Texas played out more like an open qualifier. Gainey striped 11 (of 14) fairways and missed only one green in regulation en route to nine birdies. He circled 4s on all four par 5s and will sleep on a one-shot margin over Ashley Hall and Mark Walker. The PGA TOUR winner entered the week ranked 48th on the Web.com Tour money list. His season includes a T30 at last week's Rex Hospital Open where he opted to play instead of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship where he would have snuck into the field on merit.

Tommy Gainey turns his attention to this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans and is slotted 213th in the FedExCup rankings.

Gainey is 4-for-4 at Zurich sandwiching a T32-T78/MDF in 2013, 2012, with two top 10s (T8 last year and T3 in 2011 NOLA debut). The 39-year-old is splitting time this season between the PGA TOUR and Web.com Tour having played five events on each. He's a combined 5-for-10 with one top 10 (T9 at Brasil Champions), where he slept on the 36-hole lead.

Tommy Gainey spun a 7-under-par 31-33=64 in the second round of the Brasil Champions and sleeps on the lead after 36 holes at 12-under 130.

For the second consecutive day, inclement weather in and around Sao Paulo Golf Club prevented a round to be completed. Gainey got his work done early, circling six birdies and an eagle to just one bogey. Not only is Gainey a PGA TOUR winner, he is also a two-time champion on the Web.com Tour. He's developed a reputation for getting hot in concentrated spurts, so it would not be a surprise if he carried this momentum with him the rest of this week.
Mar 13 - 8:45 PM

Tommy Gainey's number was called for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am this week.

It's tough for players with only Past Champion status to earn a spot in a PGA TOUR field on merit these days, but this tournament is the rare exception. He's missed five of his six cuts here, so gamers should not be on high alert to consider him as a valid play. Gainey enters this week fresh off a T31 in the Colombia Championship on the Web.com Tour a week after missing the cut in the Panama Claro Championship.

Tommy Gainey went 2-for-3 during the fall portion of the 2014-15 season and sits 151st in the FedExCup standings.

It's obviously very early, but the one-time PGA TOUR champ is already ahead of last season's pace during which he cashed in just 11 of 26 starts and landed 156th in FedExCup points. After flaming out in the Web.com Tour Finals, he's stuck on Past Champion status for this season. Not only is he one of the more likable touring pros, but Gainey has remained busy throughout his career, so collecting sponsor exemptions should be easier than many of his peers. It's not unprecedented for guys in his category to qualify for the Playoffs, but playing time has never been more important. At some point, the Web.com Tour may come a-tugging, so if you invest in the long-term, don't let the slack out on his leash.

Tommy Gainey posted a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in his final round of The McGladrey Classic.

The 2012 champ and course-record holder didn't miss a green in regulation at Seaside today. He converted five times for birdie, including a pair from 11-16 feet, but he failed to go bogey-free. Gainey penciled in a 5 at the par-4 14th where he three-putt from 30 feet. Nevertheless, it's an encouraging week overall. He completed 72 holes in 6-under 274 and sat inside the top 30 on the leaderboard when he walked off. Now 2-for-2 on the season, he'll need to capitalize on all of his opportunities given the fact that he's playing this season on Past Champion status.

Tommy Gainey picked up the only win of his PGA TOUR career in The McGladrey Classic in 2012 and has returned to play the Seaside Course this week.

Two Gloves finished 156th in the 2013-14 FedExCup standings, meaning he is playing this season with only Past Champion status. He will be heavily reliant on sponsor exemptions for tee times, so it is imperative that he make the most of any and every opportunity. He got into the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas last week and tied for 72nd.

Tommy Gainey spun an 8-under-par 31-31=62 in his second round of the Web.com Tour Championship, establishing the course record at Dye's Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass.

Gainey split 12 (of 14) fairways and missed only one green in regulation en route to nine birdies and one bogey, that a 5 at the 15th hole. He birdied both par 3s on the back half of the track -- his front side today -- and both par 5s on the course. The likable native from South Carolina exhausted his PGA TOUR status earned when he won The McGladrey Classic in 2012. He finished the 2013-14 season ranked 156th in FedExCup points and 147th on the money list, and then opened the Web.com Tour Finals 0-for-3. So, even though he signed his card today sitting just inside the top 10 on the leaderboard, Gainey will need to keep the pedal down on the weekend to secure his return to the PGA TOUR.

Tommy Gainey continues his quest for full 2014-15 PGA TOUR status at the Chiquita Classic this week.

Gainey was the winner of the inaugural edition back in 2010, but that was at TPC River's Bend. This week's venue is River Run CC in Davidson, NC. Considering he is a native of South Carolina, this is nearly a home game. Gainey will need to get moving after pulling out of the Hotel Fitness Championship last week following a first-round 80. He will have Past Champion status to fall back on next season, but that doesn't offer many start on the PGA TOUR these days.

Tommy Gainey turned in a 4-under-par 34-32=66 for his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, finishing three strokes off the overnight lead.

As he plays the regular-season finale, Gainey is 151st in the FedExCup standings. All that secures is a berth in the Web.com Tour Finals, so he has nothing to lose and everything to gain at Sedgefield. He offset two bogeys with six birdies, including rolls from 11'5" and 14'10" at the fourth and eighth holes, respectively. But his most notable birdie came courtesy of a hole-out from the rough 12 yards away at the par-4 14th.

Tommy Gainey turned in a 4-under-par 35-33=68 worth 10 points in his second round of the Barracuda Championship.

Gainey's done well to mount the scoring opportunities in Reno. After Thursday's 15 greens in regulation, he totaled 13 today. He didn't go bogey-free like the opener, but he gathered six birdies to offset two bogeys. With 21 points at the midpoint, he's only five back of Nick Watney's 36-hole lead.

Tommy Gainey put an 11-spot on the board in his opening round of the Barracuda Championship, finishing five points off the clubhouse lead.

Like many in the field of 132, Gainey needs a big week to avoid a trip to the Web.com Tour Finals. Step one of mission accomplished is complete. He shot bogey-free, 5-under-par 35-32=67 with three birdies before a walk-off eagle at the par-5 18th. The likable Palmetto State native hit 15 greens in regulation.

Tommy Gainey makes his way back to The Old White TPC for his fourth start at The Greenbrier Classic.

After a horrendous start to the season, Gainey is trending in the right direction, with cuts made in five of his last seven starts, including two finishes inside the top 20. His last two starts have yielded five rounds in the 60s, and just one round over 70. Gainey is 3-for-3 at Greenbrier, but none falling inside the top 40. Overall, there are a lot of arrows pointing up for Gainey.
