The Year Of The Comeback

The 2012 PGA Tour season has been all about remarkable comebacks -- and some equally as epic meltdowns. Here, we take a look back at the action thus far

Tommy Gainey

McGladrey Classic

Amazingly, the PGA Tour saved its best comeback for last. In the season's penultimate event, Tommy Gainey began the final round seven shots off the lead of Jim Furyk and Davis Love III. But a Sunday 60 -- he narrowly missed a 19-foot birdie putt on the final hole for a 59 -- gave "Two Gloves" a one-shot win and a first PGA Tour title for the former contestant on Golf Channel's "Big Break" reality show. Only David Duval's 59 at the 1999 Bob Hope Chrysler Classic is in the record books as a better final round by a tournament winner.
