There was plenty of drama at the Sea Island Golf Club in Sea Island, Georgia on Sunday as Tommy Gainey shot up the leaderboard with a 10-under 60 in the final round to win by one-stroke.
Gainey began the day at 6-under and in 29th place, but earned his first career PGA Tour victory with a winning score of 16-under. He narrowly edged out David Toms who finished second in the tournament which was played on the Seaside course.
Jim Furyk began the final round in the lead at 13-under, but was unable to keep pace with Gainey and Toms and finished in third place at 14-under. He had a shot to tie Gainey on the 18th hole, but needed a birdie and ended up bogeying the hole. Furyk was just one of a few players in late groups who struggled. D.J. Trahan and Davis Love III also began the day near the top of the leaderboard but neither shot better than a 1-under 69 on Sunday.
The Sea Island crowd almost witnessed a round of 59 as Gainey just missed a birdie put on the 18th hole.
