Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey arrested in prostitution sting


On Tuesday, PGA Tour pro Tommy “Two Gloves” Gainey was one of 124 suspects arrested as part of a prostitution and human-trafficking sting. On Thursday, he shot 66 in the first round of the Korn Ferry Tour Q-School Finals.

Gainey, 44, was charged with soliciting a prostitute, which is a misdemeanor in Florida. Gainey was released on $500 bond, according to CNN’s report on Polk County jail records. His arrest came as part of “Operation Santa’s Naughty List,” an undercover sting targeting prostitution, human trafficking and child predators.

County Sheriff Grady Judd told the AP that Gainey, a South Carolina native, was in Florida for a charity golf event.

“[Gainey] missed his tee time the next morning,” Judd said. “He was a scratch.”
