Arnold Palmer Invitational 2016: Tee Times, TV Schedule, Purse

Matt Every Goes For Three-Peat at Bay Hill
The GOLF LIVE team breaks down Matt Every's game heading into the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Florida Swing winds down with one of the PGA Tour's biggest non-major events. Returning two-time champion Matt Every will defend his title at the Arnold Palmer Invitational where last year his -19 score made him the first player since Payne Stewart in 1987 to fire four rounds in the 60s at Bay Hill. 

As he looks for the threepeat, Every will tee it up Thursday with a pair of top-25 players in the world in Rory McIlroy and Kevin Kisner.

When Every won in 2014, he benefitted from Adam Scott's Sunday collapse. Scott will be grouped Thursday with Henrik Stenson, one of the players whom Every held off to get his 2015 win. Brandt Snedeker, already a winner on Tour this year at Torrey Pines rounds out a formidable group of contenders.

Other marquee groups include the trio of Graeme McDowell, Justin Rose and Matt Kuchar, as well as a group featuring Hideki Matsuyama, Jason Day and Zach Johnson.
