Two-time PGA Tour winner Matt Every had one of the more interesting rounds of his career on Sunday when he competed in the Riviera Open on the Florida Professional Golf Tour circuit.
Every, who won the Arnold Palmer Invitational back-to-back in 2014 and 2015, now works part time for Golf Channel on the PGA Tour as an on-course reporter.
The American is only 38 years old but he has decided to try his hand with a microphone in hand for a couple of events, one of which will be the PNC Championship this weekend which sees the competitive return of Tiger Woods and his 12-year-old son Charlie Woods.
But this past Sunday, the man known for throwing his clubs in anger was back to his best.
During 2nd round Sunday Matt Every shot 29 on front nine at Riviera Open— Monday Q Info (@acaseofthegolf1) December 8, 2021
Bogeyed 10 and 12, slams putter on the cart path, picks it up, helicopters into the middle of a pond.
Putts with a wedge the last 6 holes...plays them 4 under, shoots 63, finishes 6th.
The man is a legend.
According to Monday Q School Info (@acaseofthegolf1) on Twitter, Every incredibly went out in 29 shots in the second round at the Riviera Open but proceeded to bogey the 10th and 12th holes.
The bogey at 12 clearly did not sit well with the Floridian and he took things out on his putter by snapping it on the cart path.
He then picked up his putter and helicoptered it straight into the middle of the lake.
Every was then forced to putt with his wedge on the last six holes, but unbelievably, he played them in 4-under par to shoot a round of 63.
That was enough to see him finish sixth in the tournament.
Every saw the funny side of it when he took to social media to confirm that had he been using a wedge to putt from the 8th hole then it would have been a 27.
Tour pro Jake Scott played with Every on Sunday, and he gave his thoughts on Twitter.
"Played with him that day," tweeted Jake.
"He also missed two 4-footers on 8 and 9, should have shot 27. The putter toss was epic. The eagle putt he made on the first hole was the first putt he ever hit with apparently, so I guess it got a good 12 holes from factory to pond.
