Matt Every has removed himself from the field at this week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He will be replaced by Greg Chalmers.
There is no indication of injury playing a part in this, but will update if that changes. The Florida Gator product is fresh off a T24 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, and was 3-for-5 in his career at this event. Greg Chalmers walks into his spot in the field. He will be making his eighth start at the AT&T Pro-Am, currently sporting a 4-for-7 record but nothing better than a T35 (2010). Feb 10 - 9:11 AM

Matt Every rallied for a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a three-day tally of 6-under 207, up 11 spots on the day to T10.

Every opened his third frame with a routine two-putt par before an unreal hole-out (video link below) from 209 yards -- from the desert -- for eagle-2 at the second. He was so excited that he immediately gave both shots back with double bogey-7 at the third, but settled down by playing his final 15 holes in 3-under, outpacing two bogeys with five birdies. The 32-year-old, who owns a pair of top 10 finishes in four tries at TPC Scottsdale, found just six (of 14) fairways and only 12 greens in regulation, but registered 1.900 in strokes gained: putting and a stellar 1.500 putts per GIR.
Feb 6 - 6:17 PM

Matt Every constructed a 4-under-par 34-34=68 while playing the North Course at Torrey Pines in the opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

Going off on the 10th tee, Every settled for three pars being shedding a stroke at the par-4 13th hole. He got it right back as he birdied the par-5 14th. Every picked up two more birds before the turn to go out in 2-under 34. The Florida Gator saved the best for last as he walked off with a hole out for eagle on the par-5 ninth. Every is currently T8 and just two strokes off the co-leaders. He will face the tough task of Torrey Pines South for the remainder of the event.
Jan 28 - 8:47 PM

Matt Every celebrated a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-34=68 in round two of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to reach the midpoint at 8-under 138.

Every broke off his less-than-one-year relationship with his instructor Sean Foley after the fall swing, and is going it alone entering 2016. Yes, he is at a winners-only exclusive event on Maui, but his successful defense at Bay Hill back in March was his only top 10 last season on 26 starts. It remains to be seen if the 32-year-old's plan to be coach-less will bear fruit, but his bogey-free loop today was his first blemish-free round since a 6-under 66 in R3 of his maiden win at the 2014 Arnold Palmer Invitational, 115 rounds ago.
Jan 9 - 12:13 AM

Matt Every makes his second consecutive appearance at this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

The Florida Gator has more mid-tournament W/Ds (five) than top 25s (two) since the start of last season. In the middle of that sea of withdraws, Every hoisted the trophy at the Arnold Palmer Invitational to earn his way back to Maui. Gamers have no reason to invest this week given his consistent inconsistency.
Jan 5 - 7:17 PM

Matt Every withdrew during his opening round of The RSM Classic, citing an injury.

This has been the recurring theme for the 31-year-old for months. It's his fifth mid-tournament WD in his last 12 starts and seventh career in 136 starts as a professional. Every was laying two beside the green at the par-4 11th hole on the Seaside Course at Sea Island Resort when he called it quits. He was 3-over-par on the round with two birdies and five bogeys.

Matt Every signed for an even-par 35-37=72 following his opening round of the CIMB Classic.

The only reason he had our attention today is because he withdrew at the turn of his second round of the Open two weeks ago and didn't explain why. Today in Kuala Lumpur, he found eight (of 14) fairways and just 11 greens in regulation, but limited the damage to two bogeys. The downside is that the dropped shots erased two birdies on his outward side. The aggregate is Every's 13th consecutive of par or worse. He's fully exempt on the PGA TOUR through 2017-18, so it's encouraging to see him make this trip and give it a go despite months of injuries, illnesses and poor play.

Matt Every is scheduled to compete in this week's CIMB Classic.

The 31-year-old completed only 27 holes of the Open before leaving town. No news was released to explain his latest mid-tournament withdrawal, but he's done zero in recent months to build any equity for our trust. Meanwhile, he won't be the only one trying to avert health issues in Malaysia. Prospective entrants were alerted via email last week that typhoid is a concern. The severe drought also prompted this message: "Although the air quality conditions as of Thursday in Kuala Lumpur are currently within acceptable levels, the air quality in and around the area in recent days has ranged from ‘moderate’ to ‘unhealthy’ [on the] Air Quality Index level."

Matt Every has elected not to try to give it a go at this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

We don't know why he called it quits at the turn of his second round at Silverado last week, but Every has been battling all kinds of problems for months. Consider him week-to-week, but don't hold your breath for a sudden reversal of fortune.

Matt Every withdrew at the turn of his second round of the Open.

Sigh. Here we go again. Every was 3-over-par through nine holes when he walked off. He opened with a 4-over 76, so he scored 7-over through 27. He battled injuries and illness all summer, cashing only once in his last 11 starts, and that was only because the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, where he placed 74th, doesn't have a cut. Three starts in that stretch resulted in WDs. Today's is the first on the PGA TOUR in the new season and his sixth mid-tournament WD in 134 starts as a professional. If an explanation is released, we will relay it to you. UPDATE: No explanation was provided. For the time being, the 31-year-old is scheduled to compete in next week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Matt Every enters this week's Deutsche Bank Championship amidst a prolonged slump.

The Florida Gator took home the hardware earlier this season at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The win triggered a run of poor form, as he's collected just three top 50s in his 15 starts since. Arriving at 75th in the FedExCup standings, Every is in serious danger of not cracking the BMW Championship field at Conway Farms.

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.

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.
