Si Woo Kim

Si Woo Kim closed with a three-over 75 on Sunday at the U.S. Open to finish six-under and tied for 13th.

Impact

Kim, who withdrew from his previous start at the Memorial Tournament due to an ankle injury, bounced back nicely at Erin Hills as he posted his best career finish at a major. The 21-year-old failed to card a single birdie during his final round, however, falling into a tie for 13th. He was eighth among the field in SG: tee-to-green, hitting 74 percent of his greens in regulation. Kim will be in the field for the upcoming Travelers Championship where he snuck into the top 25 last year.

Chez Reavie

Chez Reavie carded a one-under 71 on Sunday at the U.S. Open to finish five-under and tied for 16th.

Impact

Reavie, aged 35, had never finished inside the top 25 at a major entering the week at Erin Hills. That all changed when he fired a seven-under 65 on Friday, setting himself up nicely for the weekend. He hit a whopping 91 percent of the fairways in regulation throughout the tournament, tying for first among the field. This led Reavie to avoid any double bogeys or worse, while he's now up to 54th in the FedExCup standings. He'll be in the field for the upcoming Travelers Championship where he's made four consecutive cuts.

J.B. Holmes

J.B. Holmes shot a one-under 71 in the final round of the U.S. Open to finish in the 12th position.

Impact

There was no doubt Erin Hills was the type of course that would suit Holmes. Extremely wide fairways allowed Holmes to let loose and he finished the week fourth in SG: Off-the-tee. This marks his first finish inside the top-40 in six starts. Holmes is just 92nd in the FedEx Cup standings, so he will need more weeks like this in order to make it to East Lake again. Holmes is not in the field for the Travelers Championship.

Brendan Steele

Brendan Steele closed with a one-over 73 on Sunday at the U.S. Open to finish six-under and tied for 13th.

Impact

Steele led the field in birdies throughout the week at Erin Hills with 22, but he also carded 18 bogeys and six in his final round alone. He finished fourth in terms of SG: putting and first in putts per GIR, which isn't the norm for Steele. He's up to 13th in the FedExCup standings after a top-10 at the PLAYERS Championship and a top-15 this past week, so he'll look to maintain the momentum at the upcoming Travelers Championship.

Jon Curran

Jon Curran (ribs) is in the field for Monday's CVS Health Charity Classic.

Impact

Curran won't be in the field for this week's Travelers Championship, but he's easing his way back into competition at the charity event featuring six PGA Tour players this week. Curran is the reigning champion at this tournament, which has a purse of just $1.5 million.

Nicholas Lindheim (illness) will be in the field for this week's Travelers Championship.

Impact

Lindheim was forced to withdraw from his previous start at the FedEx St. Jude Classic prior to his second round due to an illness, but the health issues are behind him as he heads to TPC River Highlands. Lindheim is currently 175th in the FedExCup standings, so he likely won't be a popular pick at his Travelers Championship debut.

Kelly Kraft (undisclosed) will be in the field for this week's Travelers Championship.

Impact

Kraft skipped the FedEx St. Jude Classic after failing to qualify for the U.S. Open at sectionals, but he'll return this week as he looks to make the cut at the Travelers Championship for the first time in his young career. Currently ranked 55th in the FedExCup standings, Kraft has missed five cuts in his last seven events, but also posted two top-20s in that span.

Padraig Harrington

Padraig Harrington (elbow) is in the field for this week's Travelers Championship.

Impact

Harrington, who received stitches a couple weeks ago after being struck in the elbow while coaching, is already set to make his return to tournament action. The veteran has appeared in just six events so far this season, posting four missed cuts and two top-40s. He hasn't played well in his last three consecutive appearances at the Travelers Championship, while it's currently unclear if the elbow is even at 100 percent this soon.

Justin Rose

Justin Rose missed the cut at the U.S. Open by one stroke with a two-day total of two-over-par.

Impact

Rose was on pace to make the cut after a first-round 72, but he five bogeys and a double Friday to fall below the cut line. The Masters runner-up bumped down to No. 13 in the Official World Golf Ranking, and he won't be in the field for the upcoming Travelers Championship. Rose is currently seventh on Tour in SG: off-the-tee, but he'll need to make improvements with his approach game in order to jump back inside the top 10 of the OWGR.

Branden Grace

Branden Grace posted a five-over 77 on Sunday at the U.S. Open to finish four-over and tied for 50th.

Impact

Grace broke par during just one round throughout his week at Erin Hills, and struggled in the wind on Sunday as he fell out of the top 35. He placed 59th among the field in SG: putting, but he hit 50-of-72 greens in regulation. Grace moved down to No. 33 in the Official World Golf Ranking, while he remains outside the top 85 in the FedExCup standings.

Jordan Spieth

Jordan Spieth fired a three-under 69 on Sunday to finish one-over and tied for 35th at the U.S. Open.

Impact

Spieth hit the ball just fine throughout the week at Erin Hills, but the putter remained cold until Sunday when he posted five birdies to just two bogeys. He was top 15 in both SG: off-the-tee and SG: around-the-green, but T56 in terms of putts per GIR. Spieth was surpassed by Sergio Garcia in the Official World Golf Ranking, but will look to get back on track at the upcoming Travelers Championship.

Zach Johnson

Zach Johnson closed with a two-over 74 on Sunday at the U.S. Open to finish one-under and tied for 27th.

Impact

Johnson hit 86 percent of the fairways in regulation throughout his four rounds, but he hit just 47-of-72 greens in regulation. He began 2017 at No. 38 in the Official World Golf Ranking, but has fallen to No. 69 due to a spell of mediocrity. He'll be in the field for this week's Travelers Championship, where he has made the cut five times in his last six attempts.

Scottie Scheffler closed with a one-over 73 on Sunday at the U.S. Open to finish one-under and tied for 27th.

Impact

Scheffler, a collegiate standout at the University of Texas, finished as the low amateur this week at Erin Hills as he beat Cameron Champ by one stroke. The 20-year-old could have finished even higher if it weren't for a triple bogey on the 18th during Saturday's round. He was T19 among the field in GIR percentage, but he placed 51st in SG: around-the-green. This marks his second career top-30 finish on Tour, so he'll be a name to keep an eye on when he turns pro in the future.

Paul Casey

Paul Casey closed with a two-over 74 on Sunday at the U.S. Open to finish two-under and alone in 26th place.

Impact

Casey got out to a blistering start with an opening-round 66, but he faltered throughout the weekend with scores of 75-74 to fall outside the top 25. The Englishman's downfall came in the form of a pair of triples, but he still finished fifth among the field in SG: approach-the-green. Casey hasn't posted a top-five result since the season opening's Safeway Opening, but he's been a consistent top-25 performer and currently ranks 27th in the FedExCup standings. He'll be in the field for the upcoming Travelers Championship, where he finished runner-up in 2015.

Louis Oosthuizen

Louis Oosthuizen carded a one-over 73 on Sunday at the U.S. Open to finish three-under and tied for 23rd.

Impact

Oosthuizen was in danger of missing the cut after a first-round 74, but he bounced back throughout the rest of the tournament to finish just inside the top 25. The South African was sixth among the field in SG: putting, but outside of the top 60 in terms of SG: around-the-green. Oosthuizen, ranked 23rd in the world, has posted four top-25s in his last five events, but will not be in the field for this week's Travelers Championship.

Kevin Chappell

Kevin Chappell closed with a one-under 71 on Sunday at the U.S. Open to finish three-under and tied for 23rd.

Impact

Chappell was solid off the tee throughout his week at Erin Hills, placing top 25 in both driving distance and accuracy. He is now up to No. 25 in the Official World Golf Ranking, two spots behind his career-best mark of 23rd. He now has four top-25s in his last seven events, but he won't be in the field for the upcoming Travelers Championship.

Sergio Garcia

Sergio Garcia closed with an even-par 72 on Sunday at the U.S. Open to finish four-under and tied for 21st.

Impact

Garcia failed to break 70 throughout the week at Erin Hills, but he steadily paced his way to a top-25 finish as he dealt with the pressure of being the reigning Masters champion. The Spaniard lost strokes around the greens, but placed 13th among the field in SG: off-the-tee. He's now up to No. 5 in the Official World Golf Ranking and 14th in the FedExCup standings, despite appearing in just 11 events so far this season.

Steve Stricker

Steve Stricker fired a three-under 69 on Sunday at the U.S. Open to finish five-under and tied for 16th.

Impact

Stricker birdied three of his final five holes to move inside the top 20 at Erin Hills after barely making the cut. The Wisconsin native placed fourth in terms of SG: around-the-green and 16th in SG: putting, but was just 63rd in SG: off-the-tee. The 50-year-old is now up to No. 78 in the Official World Golf Ranking, missing just one cut so far throughout 2017.

Brandt Snedeker

Brandt Snedeker shot a final round one-under 71 to finish in a tie for ninth place at the U.S. Open.

Impact

Snedeker was one of just three players to shoot under-par in all four rounds this week. He made 21 total birdies throughout the tournament, which was tied for second-most in the field. Snedeker did a good job avoiding the big numbers at the U.S. Open, but just had too many bogeys (13) to contend with Brooks Koepka. Snedeker had another stellar week on the greens as he was second in SG: Putting. He was just playing catch up on a lot of holes because he didn't have the best driving week as he was 59th in SG: Off-the-tee. This was his ninth career top-10 in major championships as he is still looking for his first major victory. Snedeker will tee it up at the Travelers Championship next week.

Trey Mullinax fired a four-under 68 in the final round of the U.S. Open to finish in a tie for ninth place.

Impact

Mullinax closed his championship out with three straight birdies after a double bogey on 15 to notch a top-10 in his first career major appearance. His 20 birdies were tied for the fifth-most in the field for the week. Mullinax struck the ball as well as just about everyone at Erin Hills finishing second in SG: Off-the-tee, second in SG: Tee-to-green and second in greens in regulation. He was only 55th in SG: Putting and you wonder where he could have been this week had he rolled the ball better on the greens. Nevertheless, it was a tremendous week for the rookie who picks up his first career top-10 on the PGA Tour. Mullinax will be in the field for the Travelers Championship next week.
