Overnight co-leader Matt Every followed his opening 66 with a 1-under-par 37-33=70 to post 6-under 136 at the break, good for a share of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Every split the same number of fairways today as his opening (eight of 14), but he landed four more greens in regulation (11), yet walked away with a score four higher. That gives you some indication as to the meaning of his description of Thursday's round as "greasy." Today's loop feature three birdies, the longest falling from 14'3" at the par-4 13th. He walked with a birdie from inside eight feet at the iconic, par-4 18th. It not only secured the red number but it gave him one more reason to enjoy lunch. Apr 17 - 12:08 PM

Matt Every smoke-and-mirrored his way to a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in today's opening round of the RBC Heritage, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

In two starts since defending his title at Bay Hill, Every has placed T35 (Valero) and missed the cut (Masters). Naturally, he went out and matched his season-low aggregate today, and did so by hitting only seven greens in regulation. We see this every once in a while at Harbour Town due to the small greens. Every squared but one bogey at the par-4 18th before making the turn. Elsewhere, he found six birdies, including consecutive hole-outs coming in. The first came courtesy of a 17-yarder from the fairway at the par-4 sixth. He chased it with a standard-issue chip-in from the rough seven yards away at the par-3 seventh. Success at this event is nothing new for him. He placed T8 in 2012 and T12 last year.

Matt Every settled for a 6-over-par 37-41=78 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

Last week's champ played his first five holes in bogey-free 1-under. If that's considered momentum today at TPC San Antonio, then he lost it. Every dropped seven shots the rest of the way, all with bogeys. It included four in a row to conclude the round. He hit just six greens in regulation. Remarkably, because the scoring average may threaten 78, he's in decent position to make the cut, although it might take a 70 on Friday to achieve that objective.
Mar 26 - 3:19 PM

Matt Every fired a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to capture a one-stroke win over Henrik Stenson at 19-under 269.

The defending champion began his day with a bogey at the par-4 first, but circled six birdies over the next 10 holes at Bay Hill to thrust his name into the thick of contention. Three of those birdies were from longer than 12 feet, and two were better than 20 feet, so the flat stick propped him up at times. He ended his day with a seventh birdie, holing a putt from 16'10" to break out of a tie with Henrik Stenson, who was still on the course. In addition to the putter, Every's ball-striking was on point as well. Every split 11 of 14 fairways and landed 14 GIR. Stenson had a chance to catch him with a birdie on the par-3 17th and par-4 18th, but failed to convert. With this victory, the Florida Gator is exempt into the Masters, WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship. He'll also have full status on the PGA TOUR through 2017-2018 by virtue of the new three-year exemption awarded the winner of the API.

Matt Every turned in a solid 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and is tied for third with 18 to play at 13-under 203.

Considering that the defending champ was playing in the final twosome, he performed quite admirably. He circled five birdies and dropped two bogeys along the way on his navigation of Bay Hill. A 19'6" birdie on the par-4 eight and a 17'7" birdie on the par-4 13th were worthy of the loudest applause on his round. Another turning point was his ability to limit the damage on the par-5 sixth to a bogey when he found the water off the tee and had to play his third shot from the tee. He has a chance to win on Sunday, which is what every player in the field hopes for on Thursday morning.
Mar 21 - 5:54 PM

Matt Every charged up the leaderboard with five consecutive birdies late in his second round after which he signed for a 6-under-par 35-31=66.

This is a bit crazy what he's doing this week. Sure, Every is the defending champion, but he's gone 17 consecutive starts without a top-25 finish. Yet, when he walked off Bay Hill today, he co-led the field with 13 birdies. He sunk eight today, including conversions from 17 feet and 23 feet at Nos. 14 and 17, respectively. But he still sat just 1-under through 12 due to two bogeys. He began his string of birdies at the par-5 fourth. It included runs of 18'10" at the par-4 fifth and 16'6" at the par-3 seventh. Every is 10-under 134 at the break and in sole possession of second place. He's just three strokes off Morgan Hoffmann's torrid pace.
Mar 20 - 1:35 PM

Matt Every opened his title defense of the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a 4-under-par 36-32=68, finishing two strokes off the Morgan Hoffmann's overnight lead.

You could make an argument that Every benefited from ripe scoring conditions today, but then what would you say about the others in the field that didn't go as low? He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, picking off five birdies along the way. His longest measured just 12'8" at the par-4 15th hole. It's hard to believe, but this is his lowest aggregate since he opened the BMW Championship over six months ago with the same. He arrived at Bay Hill slotted 158th in the FedExCup standings.
Mar 19 - 6:43 PM

Matt Every will get his first taste of defending a PGA TOUR title as he readies for this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Florida native secured his first PGA TOUR victory at the 2014 API but has collected just two top 25s in the 24 starts post-victory. His strokes gained:tee-to-green has fallen off the radar as he enters the week ranked 203rd on TOUR. If gamers want to take a gamble on his return to form, this might be a good week to do so. It will be exactly that, though, a gamble.
Mar 17 - 11:36 PM

Matt Every prepares for this week's Northern Trust Open ranked 148th in the FedExCup standings.

Every is still looking to break out of a slump that's been going on since climbing into the winner's circle at last year's Arnold Palmer Invitational. After six events his strokes gained:tee-to-green sits at -3.061, 210th on TOUR. The Florida Gator finished in a share of sixth place last year when his game was in peak condition. Tee-to-green form is at a premium on a tough course like Riviera CC, so gamers should look straight past Every this week when setting their rosters.

Matt Every was disqualified from the Sony Open in Hawaii during his second round due to an equipment infraction.

The PGA TOUR Media's Twitter page reported the news. A note in the live blog at added the following detail: "According to the Golf Channel, Every bent his 4-iron during play yesterday and returned the club to his bag today." Various other reports from reliable resources on Twitter stated that Every alerted a rules official about the violation. He was birdie-free 1-over-par through nine holes today and 5-over through 27.

Matt Every earned a spot in his first Hyundai Tournament of Champions thanks to his win in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Every followed that breakthrough win up with a T3 in the FedEx St. Jude Classic almost three months later, but has since gone silent. In fact, he hasn't cracked the top 35 in any of his 10 events following the close call in Memphis. There is reason to be somewhat optimistic this week on The Plantation Course at Kapalua. It usually takes a low number to win this event, and Every has been known to go on birdie binges.
Jan 8 - 12:48 PM

Matt Every readies for his second appearance at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club at this week's CIMB Classic.

Every has been a wreck since his first career PGA TOUR victory which came at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March. Since his maiden win, he's finished 39th or worse in 13-of-15 events. With a change of time zone and scenery, this would be the perfect week for Every to regroup and start up another good run of form like we saw at the beginning of last year. This makes him a risky option at the CIMB, but one with a lot of upside.

Matt Every was fortunate to walk off Cherry Hills Country Club today with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the BMW Championship.

Every split nine (of 14) fairways, but manufactured only nine opportunities to break par. He did so four times, each one rolling at least 13 feet. He also squared two bogeys, but saved par from 18'3" at the par-4 13th and 14'9" at the par-3 15th to aid in finishing only one stroke off the clubhouse lead. At last check, he led the field in strokes gained-putting at 3.766. Every began the week slotted 39th in the FedExCup standings, so he'll need to keep the pedal floored to survive and advance.

Matt Every posted a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishing five strokes off the overnight lead.

Every penciled in nine pars before the turn, including a save from 11'10" at the par-3 11th hole. He then stepped on the gas with a birdie conversion from 28'3" at the par-4 first and another birdie at No. 2, this time from 11'3". Two more birdies ensued, but he walked off having swallowed a bogey-5 at the ninth hole. Every arrived at TPC Boston sitting 32nd in the FedExCup standings.

Matt Every has been removed from the published field of this week's Wyndham Championship.

While the tournament will miss out on a 2013-14 winner, Every has earned the opportunity to recharge for the FedExCup Playoffs. He missed the cut at the PGA Championship, but he's 24th in points and virtually assured of playing the next three weeks.
