Not a lot of guys in the field own two PGA TOUR wins. Also, not a lot have sunk as low as Matt Every has.
Entering last week, Every missed 20 of 27 cuts this season.
“I’m not really good at lying to myself, so I know when it’s there and when it’s not,” Every told Golf Channel. “I definitely feel like I’ve made big strides the last few months, because it sucks to suck … I’m playing well right now. It’s not like a surprise to me. But I feel good with where I’m at.”
Every said he’s eliminated the “foul ball” from popping up once or twice around, which can make the difference between a made and missed cut.
Twice a winner of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Every entered the weekend at the Canadian Open last week with the lead after a 65-68 start.
While he didn’t ride the wave, he still hit some great shots. Here’s his eagle on the par-5 13th on the way to picking up a season-best T14 finish:
If you’re looking for a lock to make the cut, Every may not be it. He’s a streaky player, so if you like what you saw last week in Canada he’s a worthy candidate for your fantasy lineup.
Long off the tee and good with his wedges, Every can rack up birdies if he doesn’t have to lean on his putter too much.
This will be Every’s first start in the modified Stableford format.
