Matt Every defended his title at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and had a couple of noteworthy equipment stories to tell in addition. Every started the week by making a putter switch to Odyssey's new Milled Collection #9 model. The putter, which featured a similar head shape to the Odyssey Works #9 he had been using, stayed in the bag for three rounds before giving way to Every's previous gamer for Sunday's final round.
Every also had a good week with his irons, ranking second while hitting 80.56 percent of his greens in regulation. Every's Callaway Apex Pro irons had True Temper's prototype AMT S400 shafts -- a shaft system that starts with a standard weight (approximately 125 grams) steel shaft in the pitching wedge and progresses 3 grams lighter in weight as you move back from the pitching wedge to the long irons.
