Perhaps better known as 'Two Gloves' - for wearing golf gloves on both hands when he plays - Gainey started the season with a tie for 69th at the Sony Open in Hawaii. He followed that up with a pair of missed cuts at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic and the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
The 32-year-old South Carolinian then made it to the weekend at the Mayakoba Golf Classic, where he eventually finished in a tie for 54th. This week at the Honda Classic, rounds of 77-73 left Gainey five shots from the cut line.
