First-round leader and World No. 751 Matt Every crafted a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to finish up on 13-under 267, up six places to T12 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Every finished 13th.
This was the 33-year-old's third 18-hole lead/co-lead of the season (30 starts) and seventh in 181 career starts. He drops to 0-for-7 converting. At a projected 168th in the FedExCup standings, his season is over, but the Florida alum is fully exempt thru the 2017-18 season from his win at the 2015 Arnold Palmer. This was his fifth Wyndham, third top 25 and second top 10 (T5/2013). After kicking off in career-low 61, 72 and 68, the Floridian began T18 on 9-under, three shy of the overnight top 10. He conjured six (of 14) fairways and pelted 17 greens in regulation, posting 0.817 SG: Off-the-Tee and 1.217 SG: Approach-the-Green. Every squared a lone bogey-5 at 14 (3-putt from 59'11"), outpaced by five circles at Nos. 1, 4, 13, 15 and 18, four from between 10 and 22 feet. It's just his second top 25 of the season, joining T14 two starts ago at the RBC Canadian Open. Aug 20 - 4:50 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, overnight leader and World No. 751 Matt Every backed up with a 2-over-par 34-38=72 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship, falling 18 places on the live leaderboard to T19 on 7-under 133, six adrift of 36-hole co-leaders Ryan Armour and Webb Simpson.

After a career-low 61, the 33-year-old led by one. He kicked off Day 2 with a bogey, double bogey-6 start, and never fully recovered, squashing four birdies with another bogey-5 and another double bogey-6. The Florida alum conjured seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.036 strokes approaching-the-green and posting a -3.102 SG: Total at the time he signed his card. He registered 1.692 putts per GIR and -1.575 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts.

Matt Every put on a ball-striking clinic en route to a bogey-free, 9-under-par 29-32=61 during round one of the Wyndham Championship, his career low on the PGA TOUR, staking his claim as the early clubhouse leader at Sedgefield Country Club.

The Florida Gator opened his day with a 105-yard hole out for eagle at the par-4 first hole, providing a huge boost of confidence to start the week. He kept his foot on the ground with his irons, giving himself eight more scoring chances from inside nine feet. His aerial attack was good for 6.516 strokes gained approaching-the-green at the time he signed his card. Every is no stranger to fast starts as this goes in the books as his seventh career first round lead/co-lead, and third since the beginning of June. This is also a career-low round for Every, previously an 8-under 62 in R2 of the 2013 Greenbrier Classic. He entered the week 183rd in the FedExCup race but already has his TOUR card locked up for one more season thanks to his 2015 victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

First-round co-leader and World No. 929 Matt Every crafted a 4-under-par 31-37=68 in the second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 11-under 133, down one spot to solo 2nd but good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Every is in a three-way T2, one back of leader Martin Flores.

The 33-year-old found eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 0.749 SG: Approach-the-Green and 1.253 SG: Tee-to-Green. He outbalanced bogeys at Nos. 3 and 13 (3-putt from 44'8"), with six birdies at 1, 2, 5, 7, 9 and 18, all from inside of 10 feet. The Florida alum recorded 1.615 putts per GIR and 1.468 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts. Play is still in progress but the last time he's been this high on the leaderboard thru 36 holes was T2 at the 2015 Arnold Palmer, which he went on to win for his second (of two) TOUR titles.
Jul 28 - 1:20 PM

Matt Every rocketed out of the gate with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-33=65 during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, sharing an early clubhouse lead on Thursday afternoon.

Every hasn't found a top 25 since February of 2016 but he's not afraid to hang a low number, now and again. Most recently, it was a 6-under 64 in R1 of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to share the first-round lead. He's now in a similar position after circling seven birdies while keeping a clean card. The Florida Gator landed just 13 greens in regulation today but gained 2.961 strokes putting to save the day. He ended the day with six putts converted from 9'9" or longer. If this co-lead holds then it will be Every's sixth career lead/co-lead after R1 on TOUR, with four of them resulting in top 30s but one fading to T66. With prime scoring conditions on deck, he'll need to keep his foot on the gas this week.
Jul 27 - 8:01 PM

Overnight co-leader Matt Every slowed his pace in round two of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, recording an even-par 34-36=70 to reach halftime on 6-under 134.

The Florida Gator shared the first-round lead with three other golfers. It was his first R1 lead/co-lead since the 2015 RBC Heritage. He returned to TPC Southwind this afternoon and really struggled out of the gate. He kicked off on the back nine and swallowed four bogeys in his opening five holes. Every would settled down from there and pick off a three-hole birdie train before the turn before trading two birdies with a bogey on the homeward nine. The two-time PGA TOUR winner has gone through a long slump but recently said his driver yips/blackouts have gone away, which is a great sign for his future output. Gamers shouldn't expect miracles over the weekend, but keep a mental note that Every is on the uptick.
Jun 9 - 6:50 PM

Seemingly out of nowhere Matt Every pieced together a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-31=64 during round one of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, staking an early spot as the clubhouse leader as the morning wave starts to wrap up.

Arriving without any form to speak of, Every pushed that aside as he split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 11 greens in regulation. His approach play was dialed in as he set up eight birdie looks from inside 18 feet over his opening 12 holes. After that, he would save par from 16'3" to keep the momentum alive, stick his 236-yard approach to 9'11" for an eagle at the 16th, and cap it off with a 28-footer for birdie at the par-4 18th. Every walked off the course gaining 3.9 strokes putting on the round. Entering the day, Every hadn't been inside the top 25 after R1 since the 2016 Valspar Championship (29 starts since), so this fast start is certainly a bit surprising. The Florida Gator does have four first-round leads/co-leads to his name with the latest coming at the 2015 RBC Heritage where he'd go on to finish T18.
Jun 8 - 2:02 PM

Matt Every has withdrawn from this week's RBC Heritage, he was 5-over thru 28 holes at the time of the WD. There is no injury cited. UPDATE: Every returned to action the following week and missed the cut by six at the Valero Texas Open (6-over 78-72=150).

The Florida Gator has struggled with his game over the past few seasons but there was hope heading into the week with cuts made in two of his last three starts. On top of that he already owned three top 25s on his Heritage resume in five previous starts. Despite the somewhat positive trends working in his favor, it wasn't meant to be as he found just four fairways on day one while also losing 1.96 strokes putting. The damage was largely done with a pair of double bogeys and he swallowed two more doubles on his outward nine today. This will go in the books as his ninth career mid-tournament WD, second of the season.
Apr 14 - 4:41 PM

Two-time champ and Florida native and resident Matt Every returns for his eighth Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando. UPDATE: Every carded laps of 73-70-74-76, currently T62 (of 72), his first made cut since T80/MDF at the 2016 Shell Houston Open last April.

The 33-year-old has won two times on TOUR in 162 career events, both here at Bay Hill and back-to-back in 2014 and 2015. In his second title defense last year, he missed the cut by one (71-74) and entered the week as World No. 163. The Florida Gator alum checks in this week at No. 927, missing 16 consecutive cuts and one mid-tourney WD, not completing four rounds in over 12 months (T42, 2016 Valspar). When he won in 2015, he was No. 96 in OWGR and his career high is 40th after the 2015 RBC Heritage (T18), so it's been a months-long-slide of epic proportion. We could state Every's dismal strokes gained stats here, but he was outside the top 190 in just about every stat both times that he won, so at this event, it's pointless.

Prior to his round two tee time, Matt Every has withdrawn from The Honda Classic. No injury was cited, but he was 14-over after day one.

If there was anytime for the Florida Gator to break out of his slump, you'd expect it to happen in his home state. This wasn't the week, though, as he swallowed seven bogeys, two doubles, and a triple in round one while taking on PGA National's Champion Course. This goes in the books as his 16th straight missed cut and gamers can continue to avoid Every until he shows any sign of form.
Feb 24 - 10:29 AM

Matt Every will test his skills at this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

To call Every's run of form a 'slump' might be an understatement. He's missed the cut in 12 straight events and hasn't found a top 20 since the 2015 RBC Heritage. In all six starts this season he's finished round one at T74 or worse, putting himself in a hole right from the start. On the bright side, the Florida Gator posted his best finish of 2016 at this event (T24). That improved his career WMPO record to 4-for-5, including a pair of top 10s. This looks like a decent venue for Every to get back on track, but his current form is so far gone that gamers can play it safe and continue to avoid for the time being.

Matt Every makes his way back to Sea Island Golf Club for a fourth appearance at this week's RSM Classic.

The Florida Gator withdrew from this event last year (3-over-par thru 11, at the time). Before that, he'd finished T7 here during the 2014 edition and also posted a T57 in his 2012 debut. More recently, Every looks out of sorts. He's failed to make the cut in 15 of his last 20 starts, with two of the five "cuts made" coming in no-cut events (CIMB Classic and Hyundai Tournament of Champions). His game sets up nicely for this week's short tracks that feature bermudagrass greens, but his form is too far off the rails to rely on.

Matt Every is one of the American invitees contesting this week's Porsche European Open at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach in Germany.

Along with Bud Cauley and Luke List, Every is a surprise but welcome addition to the field which boasts Ryder Cup stars Martin Kaymer and Thomas Pieters. Every has never played in a regular European Tour event but did tee it up in the 2014 Open Championship at Royal Liverpool and again in the 2015 edition at St Andrews. He took T71 at the former but lasted just two rounds at the Old Course after shooting 73-78. Every was absent from the PGA TOUR for three months between May and August (no official reason cited) and failed to cash at the John Deere Classic and Wyndham Championship after making his return. It means he's missed his last eight cuts on the PGA TOUR so he'll hope the change of environment might improve his fortunes.

Matt Every takes his talents to Greensboro, North Carolina, in preparation of this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Florida Gator took some time off recently, leaving a gap of three months between his missed cut at THE PLAYERS and his missed cut last week at the John Deere Classic. There was no reason cited for the absence but he now finds himself 198th in the FedExCup standings. Luckily, Every is exempt through next season, thanks to his victory at the 2015 Arnold Palmer Invitational. With just one top 40 in 16 starts this season, it's tough to recommend an investment, but Every will enjoy the return to bermudagrass greens, a surface that usually elevates this game.

Two-time defending champ Matt Every sleepwalked to a 2-over-par 36-38=74 in today's second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and with a 36-hole total of 1-over 145, missed the cut by one stroke.

A total of 74 pros and two amateurs made the cut at even-par 144. Every was looking to become the first player to post his first three PGA TOUR victories at the same event since Leonard Gallett in the 1929, 1933, and 1934 Wisconsin PGA. He opened his seventh Palmer Invite in 1-under 71, but stalled out with three birdies, two bogeys, and a triple bogey-7 (par-4 11th) on day two. Joining Every with early exits are: 145- Harris English; Matt Kuchar (snaps string of 18 consecutive made cuts); Matt Jones; Will Wilcox ... 146- 2007 champ Vijay Singh ... 147- Gary Woodland; Luke Donald; Kevin Kisner; Sam Saunders; Danny Lee; Graeme McDowell ... 148- Morgan Hoffmann; Kevin Streelman ... 150- George McNeill and Sung Kang.
