World No. 607 Matt Every is at TPC Southwind for this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic and checks in at 172nd in the FedExCup standings and off a missed cut by one at the Byron Nelson three weeks ago (72-67). UPDATE: Every missed the cut by two on 2-over 71-71=142.
This is the Floridian's fifth appearance with a best of T3 in 2014 (69-68-65-70). He missed the cut on debut in 2010, WD after R3 in 2015, and finished T27 last year as a first-round co-leader (64-70-71-72). The 34-year-old is 9-for-21 on the season with one top 25, a back-door T8 at the Houston Open six starts ago. He chased that with a T55 at the RBC Heritage and four straight missed cuts. The Florida alum owns two TOUR titles in 202 events, both at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 2014 and 2015. Jun 6 - 6:43 PM

World No. 790 Matt Every smoothed a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the Houston Open to wrap on 13-under 275, up 24 spots to T7 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Every finished T8.

This was the 34-year-old's sixth appearance, third straight cash, and first top 60 (T65/2017). He was making his 16th start of the season and has now made eight cuts and missed eight. The Florida alum, who arrived of a season-best T35 at last week's opposite-field Corales, may hang on for his first top 10 since winning his second Arnold Palmer Invitational (as defending champ) in March, 2015. That victory at Bay Hill was his only top 10 that year in 26 events. This week, he posted rounds of 67-70-72-66 and tallied 19 birdies against four bogeys and one double. The Floridian is currently 6th in SG: Approach with a cumulative 5.051 though 64th (of 75) in SG: Around-the-Green (-1.325).
Apr 1 - 3:53 PM

Matt Every snuck up the leaderboard in round one of the Houston Open, posting a 5-under-par 34-33=67 to sit just two off the early pace.

The Florida Gator product split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation. From there, he let his putter go to work, splashing home a four-pack of putts from the 10-to-15 foot range. Every entered the week with a 2-for-5 record here at the Golf Club of Houston, with nothing better than last year's T65 on his resume. Over his last five starts, Every is 5-over before the cut line (10 rounds) but 16-over after the cut (6 rounds).
Mar 29 - 4:33 PM

Matt Every caught fire in round two of the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship, twirling a 6-under-par 34-32=66 to soar inside the top 10 with a 36-hole tally of 9-under 135.

The Florida Gator opened with ho-hum GIR/two-putt pars on each of the first four holes. Then he traded a birdie with a bogey before reaching the green in two at the par-5 seventh and splashing his putt home for an eagle. That was a nice spark but the fireworks really took off after the turn, compiling a four-hole birdie train that started at the par-4 10th. Every is known for his fire-out-of-the-gate fast starts but this week he's waited until round two. Over his career this matches his fifth-best score recorded in a second round. For reference, he's posted better than 66 in R1 on 12 different occasions. Positioned inside the top 10 heading into the weekend, the Gator will now search for his third career TOUR title.
Mar 23 - 5:57 PM

Matt Every returns to the site of his two PGA TOUR titles as he preps for this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Florida Gator is 6-for-8 at this event with the clear highlights being his back-to-back victories in 2014 and 2015. More recently, he's shown flashes of good play but still not putting four rounds together. On the season he is 6-for-13 with nothing better than a T53. Given his long-term form, Every remains a long shot to contend but if there is anywhere for him to find his form, Bay Hill would be the spot.
Mar 14 - 11:27 AM

Matt Every raced out to a 5-under-par 30-35=65 during the opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii, throwing his name inside the top 10 on the early leaderboard.

Making his sixth appearance at Waialae Country Club, Every opened his week with eight birdies in round one. The Florida Gator landed just 11 greens in regulation but his putter was scorching. He drained seven putts from outside nine feet. Every also holed out from 15'3" from just off the green to save bogey and then added a 13'11" birdie from the fringe at the par-3 seventh. He walked off the course gaining 3.399 strokes with the flat stick. Looking at his past resume at this event, both of his cuts made (5 starts) have gone for top 10s. If he posts another strong round on Friday, he could be one to watch closely over the weekend.
Jan 11 - 10:44 PM

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
