Matt Every wins Bay Hill for 2nd straight year
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Matt Every won the Arnold Palmer Invitational for the second straight year, making an 18-foot birdie putt on the last hole to beat Henrik Stenson at Bay Hill.
Every rallied from a four-shot deficit last year for his first career victory. He came from three shots behind Sunday with a 6-under 66 that again sends him to the Masters.
Stenson closed with a 70. He had a one-shot lead until a three-putt bogey on the 15th hole and a three-putt par from the fringe on the par-5 16th. He missed a 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole that would have forced a playoff.
Every finished at 19-under 269. He became the first player since 1987 to win Bay Hill with all four rounds in the 60s.
