Tommy 'Two Gloves' Gainey to Deliver Keynote Address at 2012 NGWA Groundwater Expo

Gainey will speak at NGWA's Groundwater Expo and Annual Meeting, Dec. 4 to 7 in Las Vegas

Tommy "Two Gloves" Gainey will deliver the keynote address at the 2012 National Ground Water Assn. (NGWA) Groundwater Expo and Annual Meeting, which will take place Dec. 4 to 7, 2012 in Las Vegas.

Gainey, a former A.O. Smith Corp. employee, will recount his story of making his dream come true. He will share his journey from small-town beginnings in Bishopville, S.C., to making it to the PGA Tour and the importance of staying true to your form.

While it is said one needs talent and luck to become a professional golfer, when it came to making his dream a reality, Gainey preferred the tried and true method that "anything in life worth having is worth working for." He left his job wrapping insulation around hot water heater tanks at A.O. Smith, a global manufacturer of residential and commercial water heating equipment, to pursue his boyhood dream of becoming a professional golfer. After years of chasing his goal on the Nationwide Tour, Gainey finally earned his PGA Tour card in December 2008, with A.O. Smith electing to sponsor him in 2009.
