Mar 19-Mar 22, 2015: Arnold Palmer Invitational

Mar 19-Mar 22, 2015: Arnold Palmer Invitational, Bay Hill Club & Lodge, Orlando, FL. Defending champion Matt Every won The Arnold Palmer International, his second PGA Tour victory, both at Bay Hill. He has been playing since 2005. Since last year’s win, his play has been poor. He hadn’t finished in a top-45 position this season. Perhaps his new swing coach, Sean Foley, has made an impact. Every carded seven final-round birdies to overtake World No. 3 Stenson, the 54 hole leader, Every’s 17-foot birdie putt on 18 capped off a 6-under 66 that earned him the title defense by one shot.

He’s now ranked No. 6 in the world and has to be considered one of the top contenders at Augusta.
