‘Two Gloves’ Gainey is a true rags-to-riches story

Not only does Tommy Gainey make fellow country golfer Boo Weekley look like a city slicker, he is perhaps the most compelling rags-to-riches story on the PGA TOUR since Lee Trevino. Merry Mex had his two red socks. Gainey has his two black gloves. Sometimes two plus two doesn’t add up to golf’s affluent norm.

Now that he has climbed from rural humble beginnings to the Tour circle of winners, Gainey would appear worthy of, at the least, a made-for-cable flick. Pro bono suggestion: Woody Harrelson would fit the part.
