American golfer Tommy Gainey is pleased to have finally won his maiden PGA Tour title.

American golfer Tommy Gainey has expressed his relief at winning the McGladrey Classic on Sunday.

The 37-year-old's triumph at Sea Island, Georgia was his first PGA Tour title.

"I had a hot putter today," he told the Golf Channel. "It's been a hard year for me and finally we got it right.

"I was just trying to hit fairways, trying to take it one shot at a time - that old cliche. I hit fairways, I hit greens and my putter saved me."

Gainey shot a course record 10-under-par round of 60 on the Seaside Course.
