EVERY OVERTAKES SCOTT TO CAPTURE FIRST PGA TOUR WIN
Well, there's a first time for Every.
Matt Every converted four birdies in a five-hole stretch Sunday to overtake Adam Scott and then hung on to win the 36th Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard for his first PGA TOUR victory.
Every, 30, a native of nearby Daytona Beach, Fla., shot a final-round 70 on a warm and partly cloudy afternoon at Bay Hill Club & Lodge to complete 72 holes in 13-under 275. He won $1.116 million with his fifth top-10 finish of the season, but more meaningful was what the victory meant to his career.
Not only did he capture one of the most prestigious events on the PGA TOUR, but he also earned his first trip to the Masters Tournament. And he had to beat the reigning Masters champion, Scott, to do it.
"It's really cool," said Every, who first attended a PGA TOUR event as a kid when he accompanied his father to Bay Hill. "I've been close. And I kept telling myself maybe it's going to be somewhere special. I still can't believe it."
