(WLTX) --- Tommy Gainey has had a tough 2013 season but Thursday's opening round on familiar terrain has him five shots out of the lead after round one of the RBC Heritage on Hilton Head Island.
Gainey's only top 10 finish in 2013 was the season opener in Hawaii where he finished tied for sixth in the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. He has missed nine of his last 10 cuts but a return trip to his home state may be what has been ailing Gainey's golf game.
The Bishopville recorded a 1-under 70 after day one of the RBC Heritage, thanks in part to an eagle on the par 4 18th.
"Two Gloves" is five shots off the pace set by Brian Davis who is at 6-under par.
