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. Sep 21 - 9:15 AM

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.
Aug 16 - 8:46 AM

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.

Two-time defending champ Matt Every contests his seventh consecutive Arnold Palmer Invitational and looks 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.

The Univ. of Florida alum (2006) doesn't list a club affiliation, but if he wins at Bay Hill again, one will be appointed to him. He's won the previous two editions -- both in come-from-behind fashion -- and are his only TOUR titles in 142 pro starts. Overall, the 32-year-old has cashed five of six times in the event with a missed cut in 2011. Before his two wins, his scoring average on the par-72 layout (14 rounds) was 72.93. In his two wins, it's 68.00, with eight straight red numbers and six of those in the 60s. At the 2014 playing, Every erased a four-shot deficit with a final-round 2-under 70. In 2015, he overcame a three-shot deficit with a final-round 6-under 66. The Florida native and resident is 4-for-9 on the season with one top 25 (T24, WMPO), and has two WDs. He was T42 last week at the Valspar (70-74-74-70).
Mar 16 - 1:16 AM

Matt Every opened strong at the Valspar Championship, signing for a 1-under-par 35-35=70 to sit three strokes shy of the current co-leaders.

Warming up for his double title defense at next week's Arnold Palmer Invitational, Every got it rolling with the flat stick today. The Florida Gator saved par twice today from outside 15 feet, first from 15'2" on the par-3 15th and then again from 18'7" on the par-3 17th hole. Gamers should watch closely to see how he closes out the remainder of the week. A good finish this week would put him right back on the radar as he readies for next week's big defense.
Mar 10 - 4:10 PM

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.
Tue, Oct 20, 2015 01:29:00 PM

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.
