The 2013 Magellan Jets Open was played at the Waldorf Astoria Golf Club on January 4th. The 5th annual event is a two man pro-pro tournament that has had past winners like Lee Janzen, Chris DiMarco and Sam Saunders.
This years event had an exciting conclusion as 3 teams dueled it out over the final holes before Matt Every holed a 6 foot putt on the last hole for he and partner, Vince Covello, to win by one shot. With a two shot lead going into the last hole, the victory looked certain until their approach shot plugged under the lip. The last round format was alternate shot so Matt managed to move the ball out of the lip backwards enough for Vince to get his shot from the trap to 6 feet before Matt made the winning putt. Matt Every had his best year ever on the PGA Tour in 2012 with well over a million dollars in earnings and several top 10 finishes. Vince Covello missed by one shot at Q School and will be playing on the Web.Com Tour this year. They finished one shot ahead of 2011 AT T Pebble Beach Champion, DA Points and his partner, Ryder Cup player, JB Holmes. Defending champions and PGA Tour players, Chris DiMarco and Billy Horschel finished two shots back 1 Matt Every/ Vince Covello 135. -9 2. DA Points/JB Holmes 136 -8 3.
