Gainey victorious at Pebble Beach

Tommy Two Gloves has done it again.

After Tommy Gainey, he of the eponymous black gloves, won the McGladrey Classic for his first PGA Tour win, he didn't have to wait long for his next title triumphing at the Pebble Beach Invitational on Sunday.

With a 3-under 69, Gainey secured a narrw one-stroke victory ahead of compatriots Kirk Triplett and William McGirt.  

"I was looking at the scoreboard and I knew I needed the putt to win," said Gainey, who decimated the field last month in his first Tour win with a final round 60. "I was glad it went in."

Despite his unconventional grip on full shots, the rare baseball grip that gives him a jerky and idiosyncratic swing, rallied to take the lead from overnight leader Robert Streb and finished at 11-under 277.

Crucially, the 37-year-old was able to dig himself out of the left bunker on the par-5 18th, with a smooth shot that allowed him to birdie for the win.

"I am pretty good bunker player," said Gainey, who earned $60,000 of the $300,000 purse. "You can't ask for more than winning at Pebble Beach."
