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.
Jul 30 - 9:12 AM

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.
Jun 8 - 2:44 PM

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.
Jun 8 - 9:28 AM

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.
May 2 - 6:31 PM

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

He opened with a 4-over-par 37-39=76 on Thursday. It was his highest aggregate in a non-major this season since a second-round 77 at the CIMB Classic in October.
Apr 25 - 11:02 AM

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.
Apr 19 - 7:17 PM

Matt Every followed an opening 69 at the RBC Heritage with a 1-under-par 35-35=70 to post 3-under 139 at the midpoint, two strokes back of the 36-hole co-leaders.

Every landed only eight greens in regulation in his second round that began on Friday, but he limited the damage to two bogeys, the second of which a three-putt from 41'2" at the par-4 third hole. He compensated with three birdies, the longest from 27'5" at the par-4 13th, his fourth of the loop.
Apr 19 - 12:01 PM

Matt Every fashioned a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage.

In his debut at the Masters, Every missed the cut by seven strokes, so it's comforting to know that he's already turned the page even though it was expected. He traded five birdies with three bogeys today to finish three strokes off the clubhouse lead. Three of his birdies ranged 11-18 feet, but he also poured in a par save from 15'10" at the par-4 sixth and holed out from 21 yards from in front of the green for par at the par-4 11th. Every took a drop for an unplayable lie after driving into the junk well right.
Apr 17 - 1:37 PM

Matt Every missed the cut in his first Masters last week, but now turns his attention towards Harbour Town Golf Links for the RBC Heritage.

Hilton Head, South Carolina has been a mixed bag for Every, missing a cut, tying for eight and tying for 83rd in his three previous trips. This marks his second start since his breakthrough win at Bay Hill. At fourth in strokes gained-putting and 12th in proximity, there are plenty of reasons for optimism.
Apr 14 - 9:12 PM

Matt Every has been removed from the published field of this week's Valero Texas Open.

This is completely understandable given he added the Masters to his upcoming schedule with a win on Sunday at Bay Hill.
Mar 24 - 10:45 AM

Matt Every claimed his first PGA TOUR title when he signed for a 2-under-par 35-35=70 following the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

It looked for all the world like Adam Scott would be the man running away with this tournament at the halfway point, and even through 54 holes, but Every had something to say about that. The American applied the appropriate amount of pressure early, circling five birdies to just one bogey in his opening 13 holes. He stumbled with two bogeys down the stretch, but his 13-under 275 was enough to hold off Keegan Bradley by a stroke. The turning point and highlight of his round occurred at the par-4 ninth, when Every narrowly kept his tee shot in bounds, and then conjured a birdie from 15'1" after an unlikely approach. Speaking with Steve Sands on NBC following his round, a tearful Every said: "I still can't believe I won." With this victory, he gains entry into the Masters, WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship. He'll also climb inside the top 50 of the Official World Golf Ranking.
Mar 23 - 6:09 PM

Matt Every fired a blemish-free 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to take control of the clubhouse at 11-under 205.

The Florida Gator picked up a couple of short birdies on Bay Hill's front nine before turning his attention towards the back. That's when he really heated up, circling a 4'8" birdie at the par-5 12th followed by a 36'5" bomb on the par-4 13th. He then went back-to-back a second time, ramming home a 6'3" birdie at the par-5 16th and hitting his approach to 22 inches for a kick-in birdie at the par-3 17th. Every is still in search of his first PGA TOUR win. Should he post something similar tomorrow, it just might happen this week.
