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.

Matt Every has withdrawn from this week's RBC Heritage, he was 5-over thru 28 holes at the time of the WD.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.

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.
Mar 15 - 8:39 AM

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.
Feb 1 - 10:46 AM

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.

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).

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.
Thu, Mar 10, 2016 04:10:00 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).
Wed, Feb 10, 2016 09:11:00 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.

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.
