| ||Tommy Gainey went 13-under par on the weekend last year to rally and earn his
first Nationwide Tour title at the Melwood Prince George`s County Open.
Gainey has since returned to the PGA Tour, where he has been hit or miss this
season. He has missed eight cuts, but also has tallied four top-eight
finishes. Last year, Gainey went on to win the Chiquita Classic and collect
six top- seven finishes on the Nationwide Tour en route to finishing fourth
on the tour`s money list. Though Gainey will not be on hand to defend his
title, the previous three winners -- Mathias Gronberg, Jeff Klauk and Paul
Claxton -- will be at the University of Maryland Golf Course this week. Golf
Channel will have live coverage all four days. The tour heads to North
Carolina next week for the The Rex Hospital Open, where John Riegger won a
weather-shortened tournament last year.
