Matt Every became the first PGA Tour player to be disqualified from an event in 2015 when he played with a non-conforming club in Friday's second round of the Sony Open.
According to the Golf Channel broadcast, Every called over a rules official when he realized the 4-iron he bent in the opening round might not be conforming. The result of playing with a non-conforming club is disqualification.
After shooting an opening-round 4-over-par 74 on Thursday, Every was 5 over for the tournament when he was disqualified.
In 2014, the 31-year-old Every won the Arnold Palmer Invitational for his lone PGA Tour victory.
