WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. (WOLO) -- Avid Gamecock fan and South Carolina native Tommy Gainey is the early leader at the Greenbrier Classic Thursday, with an opening-round 8-under 62.

Gainey was tied with Johnson Wagner to share the lead among early finishers.

Two Gloves made eight birdies on Thursday.

The golf course is really soaked; it’s really soft,” he said. “With the players that we have out here, when you have soft greens and the rough is not too penal, I mean, you can really score low out there. I just was one of the lucky ones to make some putts.”

“Absolutely I surprised myself,” he continued. “I had been hitting it kind of bad, not real good, and just to put the new driver in the bag and to get the results that I did today and especially with the putter, I’m very happy.”
