Gainey, 44, was charged with soliciting a prostitute, a misdemeanor in Florida, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said. Gainey was released on $500 bond, according to Polk County jail records.
Fifty-three people were charged with prostitution. Judd said Wednesday seven could be victims of human trafficking.
Seven men were arrested for preying on children; five of the men traveled with intent to sexually harm children, according to the sheriff.
Gainey, called “Two Gloves” because he wears golfing gloves on both hands, was in town for a charity golf event the next day, Judd said.
“He didn’t make it,” the sheriff said. “He was a scratch.”
The PGA Tour said through a spokesperson, “We are aware of the situation but have no additional comment.” Gainey is a “past champion,” playing in five events in that category last season.
Efforts to reach Gainey’s representative for a comment were unsuccessful.
