Matt Every earned a spot in his first Hyundai Tournament of Champions thanks to his win in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Every followed that breakthrough win up with a T3 in the FedEx St. Jude Classic almost three months later, but has since gone silent. In fact, he hasn't cracked the top 35 in any of his 10 events following the close call in Memphis. There is reason to be somewhat optimistic this week on The Plantation Course at Kapalua. It usually takes a low number to win this event, and Every has been known to go on birdie binges.

Matt Every readies for his second appearance at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club at this week's CIMB Classic.

Every has been a wreck since his first career PGA TOUR victory which came at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March. Since his maiden win, he's finished 39th or worse in 13-of-15 events. With a change of time zone and scenery, this would be the perfect week for Every to regroup and start up another good run of form like we saw at the beginning of last year. This makes him a risky option at the CIMB, but one with a lot of upside.

Matt Every was fortunate to walk off Cherry Hills Country Club today with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the BMW Championship.

Every split nine (of 14) fairways, but manufactured only nine opportunities to break par. He did so four times, each one rolling at least 13 feet. He also squared two bogeys, but saved par from 18'3" at the par-4 13th and 14'9" at the par-3 15th to aid in finishing only one stroke off the clubhouse lead. At last check, he led the field in strokes gained-putting at 3.766. Every began the week slotted 39th in the FedExCup standings, so he'll need to keep the pedal floored to survive and advance.

Matt Every posted a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishing five strokes off the overnight lead.

Every penciled in nine pars before the turn, including a save from 11'10" at the par-3 11th hole. He then stepped on the gas with a birdie conversion from 28'3" at the par-4 first and another birdie at No. 2, this time from 11'3". Two more birdies ensued, but he walked off having swallowed a bogey-5 at the ninth hole. Every arrived at TPC Boston sitting 32nd in the FedExCup standings.

Matt Every has been removed from the published field of this week's Wyndham Championship.

While the tournament will miss out on a 2013-14 winner, Every has earned the opportunity to recharge for the FedExCup Playoffs. He missed the cut at the PGA Championship, but he's 24th in points and virtually assured of playing the next three weeks.

Matt Every will take his first glance at Firestone Country Club’s South Course at this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Every will be making his World Golf Championships debut as he looks to regain his early-season form which has positioned him 21st in the FedExCup standings. Since his breakthrough victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, just two of his 10 finishes have landed inside the top 35. Gamers should look elsewhere this week, selecting golfers in their WGC debuts is generally a negative-outcome strategy.

Matt Every completed two rounds of the Quicken Loans National in 2-under-par 71-69=142 and sits four strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Every is just 2-for-8 since his breakthrough title at Bay Hill, but he didn't disappoint in either payday, posting a T12 at Harbour Town and a T3 in Memphis. So, if recent history can project results, expect to see quite a bit of him on the weekend at Congressional. Today he landed only 11 greens in regulation but converted on five opportunities for birdie, including runs from 18'6" and 14'8" at Nos. 1 and 6, respectively. He also poured in pair of par saves from 10-12 feet the third and 15th holes to thwart mid-round slides.

Matt Every could only muster an even-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic and joins Webb Simpson in the clubhouse lead at 8-under 272.

The Florida Gator finished off a third-round 65 early Sunday morning and was poised to contend for his second PGA TOUR win. He found three birdies on his lap around TPC Southwind, also squaring a bogey and a double bogey. Even if his final tally isn't good enough for a win, the week is still a successful one. It marks his first top 10 since his win at the Bay Hill earlier this season.

Matt Every fired a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to establish the clubhouse lead at 8-under 202.

Every circled six birdies and squared just one bogey on his lap around TPC Southwind, gaining over four strokes with the putter while landing just eight GIR. Notable birdies included an 11'10" effort at the par-4 sixth, a 23'1" bomb on the par-4 ninth and a 14-footer on the par-4 12th before ending the round with an 18'10" birdie on the par-4 18th. While he's well off the current pace being set by Ben Crane, the Florida Gator has the opportunity to score his first top-10 finish since his win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Since that breakthrough, he's tied for 12th at the RBC Heritage, missed four cuts and withdrew from the Zurich Classic of New Orleans following a first-round 76.

Matt Every signed for a 4-over-par 39-37=76 following his opening round of THE PLAYERS.

The lid-lifter ended hours ago, obviously, but he was in our crosshairs since this was his first competition since withdrawing after one round in New Orleans with an illness. Every split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation at TPC Sawgrass on Thursday en route to four birdies, including a beaut from 45'2" at the par-4 fourth hole. However, he went 1-for-4 in scrambling and added a four-putt double bogey from 51 feet at the par-3 17th and a three-putt bogey from outside 82 feet at the par-4 fifth. His worst of the day occurred at the par-3 eighth where he found trouble pin-high and left, took a drop, didn't find the dance floor until his fourth shot, and two-putted for a triple.

Matt Every is listed in the published field of next week's PLAYERS.

The recent first-time winner on the PGA TOUR withdrew before his second round last week in New Orleans with an illness. Currently ninth in FedExCup points, he's 1-for-2 at TPC Sawgrass with a T26 last year.

Matt Every withdrew prior to his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans due to an illness.

Matt Every battled his way to a 35-35=70 in the third round of the RBC Heritage.

Every had an adventurous stroll around Harbour Town Golf Links. He got into trouble early on at the par-5 second, having to punch out after an errant tee shot, settling for a disappointing bogey on the 502-yard par 5. He did his fair share of work on the greens, rolling in three putts outside of 14 feet on the fifth, sixth, and 10th holes. The longest coming from 20'6" at the par-4 10th hole. The treacherous par-3 14th hole brought on more trouble for the Florida Gator as he plunked his tee shot into the water, leading to a bogey. At 4-under 209, Every sits four strokes off the 54-hole leader.
