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.
Jul 27 - 11:50 AM

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.

Matt Every turned in a 2-under-par 34-34=68 for his opening round of the Travelers Championship.

Back inside the ropes for the fourth consecutive week but coming off two straight mid-tournament withdrawals (wrist, then illness), it was anyone's guess what might happen today at TPC River Highlands. He landed 12 greens in regulation and gave back shots with three bogeys and a double, but he went birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie on his inward nine to state the case for a red number. His longest conventional conversion of the round measured just 10'4" for birdie at the par-4 third hole, but his eagle was arguably the most notable. Every poured in a four-yarder from the fringe for 3 at No. 13. He signed his card positioned four strokes back of the clubhouse tri-leaders.

Matt Every withdrew from the 115th U.S. Open during his second round, citing a stomach illness.

Sigh. Well, this is exactly what concerned us entering the week. If an explanation is provided, we will relay it to you, but A wrist injury forced him to call it quits after his third round in Memphis last week, so this is a better reason to withdraw in terms of its long-term implications on his swing. so the speculative among you need look no further. Every constructed a snowman on the par-5 first hole before walking off Chambers Bay today. He was 6-over-par on the round and 14-over through 28 holes. For the time being, he's scheduled to compete in next week's Travelers Championship, but he's in no rush to return. The 31-year-old started this week slotted 45th in the FedExCup standings.
Jun 19 - 9:24 PM

Matt Every blew up for an 8-over-par 39-39=78 in today's opening round of the U.S. Open.

While he dismissed the severity of his wrist injury, Every failed to connect on any of his 12 looks at breaking par at Chambers Bay today. Instead, he swallowed six bogeys and a double. While it's a U.S. Open and big numbers are out there, long-term gamers have to be a bit concerned about his value over the next two months. Keep him on a short leash.
Jun 18 - 6:16 PM

Matt Every is scheduled to embark on his third U.S. Open at 8:50 a.m. PT on Thursday.

That's his tee time on the first hole of Chambers Bay. He tied for 28th as an amateur at Pinehurst No. 2 in 2005, but didn't return to the major until last year, only to then miss the cut, also at Pinehurst. He called it quits after three rounds in Memphis last week due to a sore wrist, but it's not going to preclude sticking his peg in the fescue in the morning. "My wrist has been bothering me for a few months, but nothing major," he wrote in a text to The Daytona Beach News-Journal. Indeed. Since defending his title at Bay Hill, his only notable finish is a T18 at Harbour Town. He's trailed that with zero top 40s in four starts.
Jun 18 - 12:38 AM

Matt Every withdrew from the FedEx St. Jude Classic following his third round, citing a wrist injury.

The PGA TOUR's media department announced the explanation after 54 holes were complete. Every carded a 6-over-par 36-40=76 today with two birdies, three bogeys, one double (at the par-4 18th hole where he concluded his round) and a triple. He started the day at 1-under 139 but finished 54 holes at 5-over 215. This is his third mid-tournament WD in 124 PGA TOUR starts as a professional. Assuming he's able to peg it at Chambers Bay next week, look for him on the first tee at 8:50 a.m. PT on Thursday for the first round.
