Erin’s PGA husband who has been a pro since 1997, was busted as part of a prostitution ring last December. However, the 44-year-old seems to have started the year on a high note. In January, the golfer won his first Korn Ferry Tour event in nearly a decade at The Bahamas Great Exuma Classic. And the good news keep on coming for Gainey who is said to have avoided jail after cutting a deal with prosecutors.
Gainey faced a first-degree misdemeanor solicitation charge after being arrested for soliciting a prostitute.
