Matt Every back-pedaled to a 6-over-par 37-39=76 in today's opening round of The Barclays.
Riding a 1-for-9 skid and back inside the ropes following a neck injury that forced him out during his second round of last week's Wyndham, Every did nothing today to suggest that his body is right. He found only five (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation en route to three birdies, including a 15-footer at the par-5 12th hole. However, he also squared four bogeys, one double and a triple (at the par-5 16th). In the mildly amusing department, he averted another bogey when his try from 50'10" at the par-4 fifth found the target. So, even poor rounds have their highlights. Aug 27 - 5:19 PM

Matt Every walked off Sedgefield Country Club during his second round of the Wyndham Championship due to a sore neck.

The 31-year-old squared a bogey-5 at the 14th hole before calling it quits. He was even on the round and 3-over through 32 holes. This is his fifth mid-tournament WD in 131 PGA TOUR starts as a professional and third this season (wrist, illness). It also hangs a cloud over his ability to give it a go in the Playoffs. At 64th in points, he's poised for a minimum two starts. The other concern is his recent form, or lack thereof. Every's only payday in his last nine starts is a solo 74th at the 77-man WGC-Bridgestone. Given all of this, he's a duffer leaguer's delight at The Barclays as long as he's able to give it a go.

Matt Every has decided not to compete in this week's Quicken Loans National.

While he turned in a 4-under-par 68 for his second round of last week's RBC Canadian Open, Every missed the cut on the number and extended his slide to six consecutive starts without a paycheck. That drought should end at next week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, that is, unless he withdraws or gets disqualified. His only top 15 of the season in 21 starts remains his successful title defense at Bay Hill. He has only one other top 25 (T18, Heritage) and sits 61st in FedExCup points.

Matt Every contests this week's RBC Canadian Open at Glen Abbey Golf Club and enters the week 59th in the FedExCup standings.

Every is a perfect 3-for-3 at the Canadian Open with his one top-25 finish coming in 2010 at St. George's Golf and Country Club (T24). In 2013, he teed it up at this week's venue Glen Abbey GC and posted T28. In defense of his Arnold Palmer Invitational title, returned to Bay Hill this year and posted four sub-70 scores to claim his second PGA TOUR victory in 127 career starts as a pro. In total, the 31-year-old has cashed 12 times on 20 starts in 2014-15 with the win at the API his only top 10. He's also tossed in two WDs and one DQ. His last five events show: MC-MC-WD-WD-MC. He missed the cut by seven strokes at last week's Open Championship on rounds of 73-78.

Matt Every turned in a 2-under-par 34-34=68 for his opening round of the Travelers Championship.

Back inside the ropes for the fourth consecutive week but coming off two straight mid-tournament withdrawals (wrist, then illness), it was anyone's guess what might happen today at TPC River Highlands. He landed 12 greens in regulation and gave back shots with three bogeys and a double, but he went birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie on his inward nine to state the case for a red number. His longest conventional conversion of the round measured just 10'4" for birdie at the par-4 third hole, but his eagle was arguably the most notable. Every poured in a four-yarder from the fringe for 3 at No. 13. He signed his card positioned four strokes back of the clubhouse tri-leaders.
Jun 25 - 2:11 PM

Matt Every withdrew from the 115th U.S. Open during his second round, citing a stomach illness.

Sigh. Well, this is exactly what concerned us entering the week. If an explanation is provided, we will relay it to you, but A wrist injury forced him to call it quits after his third round in Memphis last week, so this is a better reason to withdraw in terms of its long-term implications on his swing. so the speculative among you need look no further. Every constructed a snowman on the par-5 first hole before walking off Chambers Bay today. He was 6-over-par on the round and 14-over through 28 holes. For the time being, he's scheduled to compete in next week's Travelers Championship, but he's in no rush to return. The 31-year-old started this week slotted 45th in the FedExCup standings.
Jun 19 - 9:24 PM

Matt Every blew up for an 8-over-par 39-39=78 in today's opening round of the U.S. Open.

While he dismissed the severity of his wrist injury, Every failed to connect on any of his 12 looks at breaking par at Chambers Bay today. Instead, he swallowed six bogeys and a double. While it's a U.S. Open and big numbers are out there, long-term gamers have to be a bit concerned about his value over the next two months. Keep him on a short leash.
Jun 18 - 6:16 PM

Matt Every is scheduled to embark on his third U.S. Open at 8:50 a.m. PT on Thursday.

That's his tee time on the first hole of Chambers Bay. He tied for 28th as an amateur at Pinehurst No. 2 in 2005, but didn't return to the major until last year, only to then miss the cut, also at Pinehurst. He called it quits after three rounds in Memphis last week due to a sore wrist, but it's not going to preclude sticking his peg in the fescue in the morning. "My wrist has been bothering me for a few months, but nothing major," he wrote in a text to The Daytona Beach News-Journal. Indeed. Since defending his title at Bay Hill, his only notable finish is a T18 at Harbour Town. He's trailed that with zero top 40s in four starts.
Jun 18 - 12:38 AM

Matt Every withdrew from the FedEx St. Jude Classic following his third round, citing a wrist injury.

The PGA TOUR's media department announced the explanation after 54 holes were complete. Every carded a 6-over-par 36-40=76 today with two birdies, three bogeys, one double (at the par-4 18th hole where he concluded his round) and a triple. He started the day at 1-under 139 but finished 54 holes at 5-over 215. This is his third mid-tournament WD in 124 PGA TOUR starts as a professional. Assuming he's able to peg it at Chambers Bay next week, look for him on the first tee at 8:50 a.m. PT on Thursday for the first round.
Jun 13 - 7:07 PM

Matt Every returns for his fourth appearance at the Memorial and enters the week ranked 39th in the FedExCup standings.

Every is 11-for-15 on the season with one top 10, but it came in the form of a win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. In fact, Every has two career victories on the PGA TOUR (in 123 starts) and both have come at Bay Hill. The 31-year-old last teed it up four weeks ago registering a T42 at THE PLAYERS. Every posted a T6 in his 2012 Memorial debut, but has followed it with missed cuts in the last two editions.
Jun 3 - 9:40 AM

Overnight co-leader Matt Every followed his opening 66 with a 1-under-par 37-33=70 to post 6-under 136 at the break, good for a share of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Every split the same number of fairways today as his opening (eight of 14), but he landed four more greens in regulation (11), yet walked away with a score four higher. That gives you some indication as to the meaning of his description of Thursday's round as "greasy." Today's loop feature three birdies, the longest falling from 14'3" at the par-4 13th. He walked with a birdie from inside eight feet at the iconic, par-4 18th. It not only secured the red number but it gave him one more reason to enjoy lunch.
Apr 17 - 12:08 PM

Matt Every smoke-and-mirrored his way to a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in today's opening round of the RBC Heritage, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

In two starts since defending his title at Bay Hill, Every has placed T35 (Valero) and missed the cut (Masters). Naturally, he went out and matched his season-low aggregate today, and did so by hitting only seven greens in regulation. We see this every once in a while at Harbour Town due to the small greens. Every squared but one bogey at the par-4 18th before making the turn. Elsewhere, he found six birdies, including consecutive hole-outs coming in. The first came courtesy of a 17-yarder from the fairway at the par-4 sixth. He chased it with a standard-issue chip-in from the rough seven yards away at the par-3 seventh. Success at this event is nothing new for him. He placed T8 in 2012 and T12 last year.
Apr 16 - 5:11 PM

Matt Every settled for a 6-over-par 37-41=78 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

Last week's champ played his first five holes in bogey-free 1-under. If that's considered momentum today at TPC San Antonio, then he lost it. Every dropped seven shots the rest of the way, all with bogeys. It included four in a row to conclude the round. He hit just six greens in regulation. Remarkably, because the scoring average may threaten 78, he's in decent position to make the cut, although it might take a 70 on Friday to achieve that objective.
Mar 26 - 3:19 PM

Matt Every fired a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to capture a one-stroke win over Henrik Stenson at 19-under 269.

The defending champion began his day with a bogey at the par-4 first, but circled six birdies over the next 10 holes at Bay Hill to thrust his name into the thick of contention. Three of those birdies were from longer than 12 feet, and two were better than 20 feet, so the flat stick propped him up at times. He ended his day with a seventh birdie, holing a putt from 16'10" to break out of a tie with Henrik Stenson, who was still on the course. In addition to the putter, Every's ball-striking was on point as well. Every split 11 of 14 fairways and landed 14 GIR. Stenson had a chance to catch him with a birdie on the par-3 17th and par-4 18th, but failed to convert. With this victory, the Florida Gator is exempt into the Masters, WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship. He'll also have full status on the PGA TOUR through 2017-2018 by virtue of the new three-year exemption awarded the winner of the API.
Mar 22 - 5:39 PM

Matt Every turned in a solid 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and is tied for third with 18 to play at 13-under 203.

Considering that the defending champ was playing in the final twosome, he performed quite admirably. He circled five birdies and dropped two bogeys along the way on his navigation of Bay Hill. A 19'6" birdie on the par-4 eight and a 17'7" birdie on the par-4 13th were worthy of the loudest applause on his round. Another turning point was his ability to limit the damage on the par-5 sixth to a bogey when he found the water off the tee and had to play his third shot from the tee. He has a chance to win on Sunday, which is what every player in the field hopes for on Thursday morning.
