Arnold Palmer presents the trophy to Matt Every, right, after Every won the Arnold Palmer Invitational yesterday in Orlando

Yesterday at the prestigious Arnold Palmer Invitational played at the beautiful Bay Hill Country Club in Orlando we had a first time winner on the PGA Tour. Matt Every, was nine shots behind Masters champion Adam Scott going into the weekend at Bay Hill. He was still four back of the Australian he referred to as a “stud” going into the final round Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Every finished at 13-under 275, one shot ahead of Keegan Bradley, who needed two late birdies for a 72. Scott was third.

For Every this was his 92nd start as a pro on the PGA Tour, he finally won at just the right time and just the right place. The 30-year-old who grew up 90 minutes away in Daytona Beach used to come to Bay Hill as a kid to watch the tournament. And he beat the Masters champion to earn his own spot in the Masters next month.
