Jon Rahm closed with a two-under 68 on Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to finish one-under and tied for 28th.

Impact

Rahm's roller-coaster week included three scores of 68 or better, but a second-round 77 kept him from contending near the top of the leaderboard. He ranked first among the field in SG: Off-the-Tee, but was just 75th in SG: Approach as he failed to capitalize on his elite driving performance. He'll be making his PGA Championship debut this week at Quail Hollow.

Charl Schwartzel

Charl Schwartzel closed with a one-under 69 on Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to finish two-under and tied for 24th.

Impact

Schwartzel remained steady throughout the week as he avoided any double bogeys while also carding just 10 bogeys. He ranked ninth among the field in SG: Around-the-Green, but lost strokes with his putter. He also hit just 36 percent of the fairways in regulation, but still managed to hit 60 percent of the greens. He'll tee it up alongside Bubba Watson and Paul Casey for the first two rounds of the PGA Championship this week.

Justin Thomas

Justin Thomas shot a three-under 67 in the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and finished in a tie for 28th place.

Impact

Plain and simply, Thomas had a great ball striking week and terrible putting week. He ranked third in SG: Tee-to-green and 69th in SG: Putting. Thomas appears to be still searching for his A game as he missed his previous three cuts entering this no-cut WGC event. His three wins and eight top-10's hold him in fourth in the FedExCup standings. Thomas will play with Tommy Fleetwood and Patrick Reed in the opening two rounds of the PGA Championship. Quail Hollow should set up well for Thomas who is one of the longest hitters on tour and ranks third in birdie average.

Kevin Kisner

Kevin Kisner closed with a bogey-free four-under 66 on Sunday to finish in a tie for 28th place at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Impact

Kisner ranked 18th in SG: Putting and T11 in putts per GIR. He was only T52 in greens in regulation and 66th in SG: Around-the-green, however. Kisner is still looking for his first top-25 since a T6 at the Memorial back in early June. He has six top-10's and 10 top-25's in 22 starts this season and sits ninth in the FedExCup standings. Kisner will play alongside Daniel Berger and Jim Furyk for the opening two rounds at the PGA Championship. Kisner's overall game is really solid as he is inside the top-50 in all five of the strokes gained categories this season.

Graham DeLaet

Graham DeLaet (back) will be in the field at this week's PGA Championship.

Impact

DeLaet most recently withdrew from the Barracuda Championship during his third round due to a back injury, but the issue isn't expected to keep him sidelined for the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow. Although the back injury seems to have been a minor setback, daily fantasy gamers should still proceed cautiously with the Canadian this week.

Brandt Snedeker

Brandt Snedeker (ribs) will be in the field at this week's PGA Championship.

Impact

Snedeker, who hasn't played since the Travelers Championship in late June, will be making his return to tournament action this week at Quail Hollow after recovering from a rib/sternum injury. There could be some rust to shake off throughout his first couple rounds back, but he's coming off top-14s during his last two starts in June. Snedeker has never finished top-10 at a PGA Championship while also failing to win a single major during his career so far.

Francesco Molinari

Francesco Molinari fired a five-under 65 in the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to jump into a tie for 24th place.

Impact

His ball striking was very impressive at Firestone. Molinari ranked fourth in SG: Off-the-tee, fifth in SG: Tee-to-green, and T13 in greens in regulation. On the greens is where Molinari couldn't find any consistency as he was 64th in SG: Putting and 72nd in putts per GIR. His stats this week are consistent with his season performance (3rd SG: Tee-to-gree, 133rd SG: Putting). Molinari will be making his ninth straight start at the PGA Championship. He has made the cut in every appearance at that event.

Chez Reavie

Chez Reavie has earned an entry into this week's PGA Championship, Rob Bolton of PGATour.com reports.

Impact

Reavie recently withdrew prior to the Barracuda Championship due to an undisclosed reason, but he may have just needed a week of rest after making the cut in nine of his last 10 starts. With eight top-25s so far this season, Reavie is up to 66th in the FedExCup standings.

Sung Joon Park will be in the field for this week's Price Cutter Charity Championship on the Web.com Tour.

Impact

Park hasn't played on the PGA Tour since the FedEx St. Jude Classic in early June due to a shoulder injury, but he'll be back in action this week on the Web.com Tour.

William McGirt

William McGirt will be in the field at this week's PGA Championship.

Impact

McGirt most recently withdrew from his last start at the RBC Canadian Open after 27 holes due to an undisclosed reason, but he'll be back in action this week at Quail Hollow. McGirt has now gone eight straight events without a top-25 finish, while he currently ranks 90th in the FedExCup standings.

Brendan Steele

Brendan Steele closed with a two-under 68 in the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and finished in a tie for 24th place.

Impact

After he opened with a 73, Steele bounced back by shooting in the 60's in the final three rounds. A big key to his week was ball striking as he tied for the most greens hit in regulation. Steele was also top-10 in both SG: Off-the-tee and SG: Approach. In the mix in perhaps the best season of his career, Steele has accumulated a win, four top-10's, 10 top-25's, and just three missed cuts in 21 starts. He will be making his fifth start at the PGA Championship. His best finish was in 2015 when he was T12.

Bubba Watson

Bubba Watson closed with an even-par 70 on Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to finish three-under and tied for 17th.

Impact

Watson fired inconsistent scores of 67-74-66-70 on the way to his first top-20 since the Memorial Tournament in early June. He ranked fifth in driving distance and 13th in SG: Around-the-Green, but lost strokes with his irons on approach shots. He'll tee it up alongside Charl Schwartzel and Paul Casey for the first two rounds at this week's PGA Championship.

Daniel Berger

Daniel Berger closed with an even-par 70 on Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to finish three-under and tied for 17th.

Impact

Berger's four final-round birdies were canceled out by just as many bogeys, as he fell from the top-10 throughout his final 18 holes. He still ranked top-eight in SG: Approach, SG: Around-the-Green and SG: T2G, but hit just 45 percent of the fairways in regulation. Since his win at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, Berger has finishes of T17-T27-T5-2-MC in his last five events heading into the PGA Championship.

Brooks Koepka

Brooks Koepka closed with an even-par 70 on Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to finish three-under and tied for 17th.

Impact

Koepka's colorful Sunday scorecard included five birdies, three bogeys and a double as he fell outside of the top-10. He ranked second among the field in SG: Putting, but was nearly dead last in terms of SG: Around-the-Green. Koepka was surpassed in the Official World Golf Ranking by Rickie Fowler, heading into the PGA Championship at No. 11.

Jason Day

Jason Day ended his WGC-Bridgestone Invitational with a one-over 71 on Sunday and finished in a tie for 24th place.

Impact

After a strong 66 in his second round, Day found himself in good position to collect his first win since the 2016 PLAYERS. The former World No. 1 would play the weekend in one-over and had to settle for a somewhat disappointing T24. Day had 19 birdies this week which was T4 in the field. One of the best parts of Day's game is his short game, but it wasn't this week as he ranked 61st in SG: Around-the-green. His driving took a step up, however, as he was 13th in SG: Off-the-tee. Day will enter the final major of the year with just two top-10's in 15 starts this season. For comparison he had 11 and 10 such finishes in his previous two seasons respectively.

Jhonattan Vegas

Jhonattan Vegas carded a one-under 69 on Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to finish three-under and tied for 17th.

Impact

Vegas, who won the RBC Canadian Open just days before teeing it up again at Firestone CC, was able to finish top-20 despite hitting less than 40 percent of the fairways in regulation. He ranked third in driving distance and 21st in SG: OTT, while also gaining strokes with the putter. Vegas is up to a career-high 46th in the Official World Golf Ranking as he heads to the PGA Championship.

Matt Kuchar

Matt Kuchar fired a two-under 68 on Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to finish three-under and tied for 17th.

Impact

Kuchar was three-over heading into Saturday's third round, but he played his weekend in six-under-par to salvage a quality finish inside the top-20. He struggled with his ball striking, but ranked top-eight among the field in SG: Around-the-Green and SG: Putting. Kuchar has made 12 straight starts without missing a cut as he heads into the PGA Championship this week.

Henrik Stenson

Henrik Stenson fired a three-under 67 on Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to finish three-under and tied for 17th.

Impact

Stenson entered the weekend at just two-over-par, but he played his final two rounds in a combined five-under to jump inside the top-20. He carded just six bogeys throughout the week which was lowest among the field, but he also made three double bogeys. The eighth-ranked player in the world has four straight top-26s heading into the PGA Championship this week.

Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson fired a four-under 66 on Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to finish three-under and tied for 17th.

Impact

Johnson saved his best for last at Firestone CC, but a second-round 75 ultimately kept him well out of contention throughout the week. He ranked top-10 in SG: OTT and SG: Putting, but lost strokes with his irons and wedges. The No. 1 player in the world hasn't posted a top-five finish in seven consecutive starts, but will look to add another major victory at this week's PGA Championship.

Kevin Chappell

Kevin Chappell closed with a one-under 69 on Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to finish four-under and tied for 13th.

Impact

Chappell came out of the gates with a disappointing 72 on Thursday, but turned it around with scores of 67-68-69 during his last three rounds. He ranked second among the field in SG: Around-the-Green and driving distance, but lost strokes on the green with his putter. He'll be in the field at this week's PGA Championship coming off a pair of top-13s in his last two starts.
