Every wins Arnold Palmer Invite
ORLANDO, FL (TheSpread) – Matt Every made it back-to-back Arnold Palmer Invitational victories on Sunday as he won the PGA event thanks to a birdie on the final hole.
Every started the day three shots back of the leader, Henrik Stenson, but he shot a 6-under 66 on Sunday to finish at -19 for the tournament, while Stenson shot a 70 to finish at -18. Every hit an 11-foot birdie putt on the final hole to get the win, otherwise the two would have went to a playoff.
According to the oddsmakers, Every had 150/1 odds to win this tournament coming into the week, which means a wager of $100 on Every to win will pay out an additional $15,000.
Morgan Hoffman was the leader by multiple shots at one point during the day, but he struggled down the stretch and eventually finished Sunday with a 1-over 71 to score -15 for the tournament and end up fourth. Matt Jones was third by himself after finishing at -17 for the tournament following a final-round 68.
