Matt Every, a relatively unknown golfer on the PGA Tour, earned his second professional win on Sunday by shooting a 2-under-par 70 to rally from a four-shot deficit and win the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Golf Course in Orlando, Florida.

The 30-year-old Every is a graduate of the University of Florida. He has won an event each on the Tour and the PGA Tour. He turned pro in 2006.

Every finished a shot ahead of Keegan Bradley, who carded two late birdies for a 72. Adam Scott, who had a bad round and weekend after blowing a seven-shot lead, closed the tournament with a 76, two shot off the pace in third place.

Every finished at 13-under-par 275.

Tiger Woods tied Jack Nicklaus for all-time PGA Tour wins with 73 at the Memorial Tournament back in June.

With his latest win on Sunday, he now has 74 wins and has passed his golfing idol. He is now 8 wins behind Sam Snead who has 82.

Woods held off  Bo Van Pelt on the back nine of the Blue Course at Congressional Country Club on Sunday to win the AT&T National in Bethesda, Maryland.

In this comeback season for Woods, she has risen to number-4 in the world golf rankings behind Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood.

With his final-round of 2-under par 69, Woods beat the scrappy Van Pelt by two shots and became the first golfer to earn three wins on Tour this season. Adam Scott finished third at 5-under-par 67 on Sunday.

In his career, this is the 12th time that Woods has won at least three times. He has three wins in his last seven starts.

Woods went 41 holes without a bogey until needing six strokes to get off the par-5 16th. He took the outright lead by making a 6-foot putt for par on the 17th as Van Pelt made bogey. Bogeys on the last three holes hurt Van Pelt’s chances.

PGA Tour golfer Tiger Woods has seen several changes in his career in the past two years, a sex scandal, a well-publicized divorce, losing corporate sponsors, no wins, his ranking drop from #1 to 20th in the world and now a new caddie.

It was announced on Wednesday that Woods had let his long-time friend and caddy Steve Williams go. Woods made the surprising news on his website .

According to published reports around the golf world, the successful partnership ended in a room at the Aronomink Golf Club near Philadelphia two weeks ago, but both kept the news quiet until Wednesday. Williams says he “shocked” by the decision.

Everybody wonders how this partnership dissolved after 12 years of success.

It has been reported that Woods was upset when Williams worked for Adam Scott at the U.S. Open, then worked for him at the AT&T National and the British Open.

Woods, unlike other golfers, has only had three caddies during his career. Williams, Mike “Fluff” Cowan and childhood friend, Bryon Bell.

It was a wild Sunday at Augusta National Golf Course in Eastern Georgia. It was wild in the sense of as many as eight players held at least a share of the lead during the final nine holes of the 75th Masters.

The winner turned out to be the son of a former golfer who was playing in the event for only the second time.

The champion of the Masters for 2011 is Charl Schwartzel, who is 26 years, a South African and unknown to most golf fans. But he is known to the media and his peers. The 5’11, 140 pound soft-spoken golfer was among the top 30 in all 2010 major tournaments. His best finish was a tie for 14th in the British Open.

Schwartzel closed the tournament with four birdies to win by two strokes. He made putts from 10, 15, 12 and 18 feet to become the first player in Masters history to close at 4-2-3-3. Overall, he ended at 14-under-par 274 for the tourney after shooting a 6-under-par 66 on Sunday. He bested two Australians, Jason Day (68) and Adam Scott (67).

Tiger Woods closed with a 67 and finished for the four-day tournament at 278 in a tie for fourth with Geoff Ogilvy (67).
