Tommy ‘Two Gloves’ Gainey will avoid prison and instead serve 11 months probation after he was arrested as part of a prostitution sting in Central Florida last December.

According to court records obtained by TMZ, Gainey will also take a human trafficking class, serve up to 100 hours of community service and will pay fines and fees totaling $6,218.60. The 44-year-old may also see his probation sentence reduced should he meet the requirements of the deal early.

Gainey was arrested as part of a prostitution sting before Christmas dubbed “Operation Santa’s Naughty List”. The South Carolina native was apprehended on Dec, 8 for soliciting a prostitute and charged with a first-degree misdemeanour before being later released after posting the $500 bail.

Last month, Gainey won the Korn Ferry Tour’s Bahamas Great Exuma Classic at Sandals Emerald Bay – his first victory on any Tour since 2012.

Titleist responds to USGA and R&A’s Distance Insights Report

Published

on

Titleist has responded to the USGA and R&A’s ‘Distance Insights Report’ saying in-part that the governing bodies are focusing too much on the men’s professional game, and are undervaluing the skill of the game’s elite.

In a written statement titled “A Perspective on the Distance Insights Report”, David Maher, CEO and president of Titleist’s parent company, Acushnet, wrote

“We believe the conclusions drawn in this Report undervalue the skill and athleticism of the game’s very best players and focus far too much on the top of the men’s professional game and project this on golf and golfers as a whole.”

Maher stressed that the current equipment regulations are sufficient in halting any significant increases going forward by the longest hitters in the game, and believes that any changes implemented that could see a local rule put in place, would be a wrong move.

“The existing equipment regulations allow professional and amateur golfers to play by the same unified set of rules, with the same equipment, and on the same courses. We believe that playing by a unified set of rules coalesces our game, is an essential part of its global understanding and appeal, and eliminates the inconsistency and inability that would come from multiple sets of equipment standards.”

The use of technology to bring younger people into the sport and aid the longevity of golfers was also highlighted by Maher who said

“Golf is bringing younger players into the game sooner and keeping older players longer than ever; professional golf is as dynamic and entertaining as it’s ever been; and the game remains a healthy challenge for all players and at all levels.”
