Trey Mullinax carded a one-under 69 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish five-under and tied for 18th.

Impact

Mullinax got out to a hot start as he entered the weekend at six-under before ultimately falling outside of the top 15. He ranked fifth among the field in driving distance and 10th in SG: approach, but struggled with his accuracy off the tee along with wedge play. Mullinax had missed four consecutive cuts heading into the SJC, so this was a much-needed top 20 as he looks forward to the upcoming U.S. Open.

Ryan Brehm closed with a two-under 68 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish one-under and T37.

Impact

Brehm led the field in driving distance throughout the week at TPC Southwind, but couldn't get much else going as he carded just 11 total birdies. He hasn't posted a top-25 finish since October's Sanderson Farms Championship, but Brehm has made 8-of-10 cuts so far in 2017. He'll be a cheap daily fantasy option at the upcoming U.S. Open, where he'll look to use that length to his advantage.

Russell Knox

Russell Knox fired a three-under 67 on Sunday to finish one-under and tied for 37th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Impact

Knox salvaged a top-40 finish at TPC Southwin after playing his first three rounds in a combined two-over-par. Ball striking wasn't the issue for Knox as he ranked fifth among the field in terms of SG: tee-to-green. The putter failed him, finishing 70th in SG: putting and 69th in putts per GIR. Know has posted just one top-25 finish in his last 11 events, but he's still No. 39 in the OWGR and will be in the field for this week's U.S. Open.

Graeme Mcdowell

Graeme McDowell closed with a two-under 68 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish three-under and T27.

Impact

McDowell posted quite a colorful scorecard on Sunday as he notched an eagle, four birdies, two bogeys and a double. He led the field in birdies throughout the week with 21, but also carded 14 bogeys and three doubles. McDowell hasn't missed a cut since the Puerto Rico Open in March, so he'll head into the U.S. Open with a bit of momentum on his side.

Francesco Molinari

Francesco Molinari carded an even-par 70 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish four-under and tied for 24th.

Impact

Molinari failed to card a single birdie throughout his last 12 holes, restricting him from moving inside of the top 20. He finished T13 in terms of driving accuracy, but struggled to get much going with the putter at TPC Southwind. The 17th-ranked player in the world will be in the field for this week's U.S. Open riding a streak of four straight top-25s dating back to the RBC Heritage.

Stewart Cink

Stewart Cink carded a three-over 73 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish six-under and tied for 10th.

Impact

Cink was in solid position to win the whole tournament after Sunday's front nine, but he went on to play holes 10-15 in a combined four-over-par as he fell down the leaderboard. It's still an impressive finish for the veteran, however, as he managed to place top 10 despite ranking outside of the top 50 in terms of GIR percentage and driving accuracy. The putter kept Cink afloat for the most part, and he'll need to keep the flat stick hot to have any chance at the upcoming U.S. Open.

Adam Scott

Adam Scott closed with a two-under 68 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish six-under and tied for 10th.

Impact

Scott had quite an up-and-down showing at TPC Southwind as he posted scores of 71-64-71-68 en route to his third top 10 in five events. He finished first among the field in SG: off-the-tee and hit the seventh-most greens in regulation, but was limited by a shaky putting performance. Although Erin Hills is a new venue, Scott has finished top-20 at four of the past five U.S. Opens, and he almost always seems to show up on the bigger stages.

Harris English

Harris English fired a five-under 65 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish six-under and tied for 10th.

Impact

English saved his best for last at TPC Southwind this past week, notching seven birdies to just two bogeys during his final round as he jumped up 35 spots on the leaderboard. Despite carding four doubles earlier in the week, English ranked first among the field in SG: approach and T8 in putts per GIR. After three straight missed cuts, he has finished T29-T10 in his last two events heading into the upcoming U.S. Open.

Phil Mickelson

Phil Mickelson closed with a two-under 68 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish seven-under and alone in ninth place.

Impact

Mickelson played the first 11 holes of his final round in four-under-par, but a costly triple-bogey at the par-four 12th ultimately kept him from contention down the stretch. He played all four rounds at TPC Southwind under par, but just couldn't avoid the big numbers as he posted two doubles throughout the week in addition to his final-round triple. Mickelson, who will attend his daughter's graduation Thursday morning in California, has still not withdrawn from the U.S. Open in hopes of a weather delay, which would allow for him to potentially make his tee time.

Rafa Cabrera Bello

Rafael Cabrera-Bello closed with a one-over 71 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish eight-under and tied for fourth.

Impact

Cabrera-Bello entered Sunday's final round with a share of the lead, but a double bogey on the par-three fourth was the dagger as he finished two strokes behind champion Daniel Berger. The Spaniard had the putter rolling at TPC Southwind, ranking top 10 among the field in terms of both SG: putting and putts per GIR. He has now finished top-25 in three of his last four starts heading into this week's U.S. Open.

Kevin Chappell

Kevin Chappell carded a one-under 69 on Sunday to finish eight-under and tied for fourth at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Impact

Chappell fired four consecutive under-par rounds to place top five for the first time since his win at the Valero Texas Open. This past week in Memphis, Chappell hit the third-most greens in regulation thanks to his length off the tee combined with a stellar approach game. Currently ranked No. 26 in the Official World Golf Ranking, he'll be in the field for this week's U.S. Open.

Chez Reavie

Chez Reavie closed with a one-under 69 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish eight-under and tied for fourth.

Impact

Reavie could've been closer to contention if it weren't for a second-round 72, but he was still able to hit the fourth-most greens in regulation throughout the week. He also tied for third in terms of driving accuracy, but struggled with his wedges around the greens. Reavie has missed just one cut throughout his past five events, so he'll look to maintain that momentum at the upcoming U.S. Open.

Braden Thornberry fired a five-under 65 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish eight-under and tied for fourth.

Impact

Thornberry, who recently won the NCAA individual title, finished just two strokes behind champion Daniel Berger during his PGA Tour debut. Thornberry played as an amateur, however, so he was forced to turn down the $241k he would have won with professional status. He was second among the field in terms of SG: putting, but hit just 46 percent of his fairways in regulation. At just 20 years old, Thornberry may elect to finish his collegiate career before turning pro.

Billy Horschel

Billy Horschel fired a six-under 64 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish eight-under and tied for fourth.

Impact

Horschel entered Sunday's final round outside of the top 35, but he birdied his last four holes of the tournament to jump inside the top five, finishing just two strokes behind champion Daniel Berger. Horschel now has a win and a top five throughout his past four events, ascending to No. 13 in the FedExCup standings. He'll be in the field for this week's U.S. Open with positive momentum on his side.

Gregory Bourdy will be in the field for this week's U.S. Open, Rob Bolton of PGATour.com reports.

Impact

Bourdy, originally listed as an alternate, will make his third career U.S. Open appearance, having finished T18 in 2016. He most recently placed T21 at the European Tour's Nordea Masters, while he currently ranks 163rd in the Official World Golf Ranking. The 35-year-old lacks distance off the tee, but hits fairways and greens at a healthy rate.

Whee Kim closed with a three-under 67 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish nine-under and tied for second.

Impact

Kim missed six consecutive cuts before finishing top 35 at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational, which he then followed up with a T2 this past week in Memphis. He was third in strokes gained putting and 10th in putts per GIR, but placed outside of the top 50 in terms of driving accuracy. Originally listed as an alternate, Kim will now be in the field for this week's U.S. Open.

Charl Schwartzel

Charl Schwartzel fired a four-under 66 on Sunday at the FedEx St. Jude Classic to finish nine-under and tied for second.

Impact

Schwartzel began Sunday's final round outside of the top 10, but surged into a tie for second just one stroke behind champion Daniel Berger. He finished third among the field in putts per GIR and seventh in SG: putting, but he hit just 29-of-56 fairways in regulation. Schwartzel has struggled to hit greens and fairways throughout the season, but he's up to No. 16 in the Official World Golf Ranking thanks to a hot putter. He'll be in the field for this week's U.S. Open at Erin Hills.

Ryan Palmer

Ryan Palmer will be in the field for this week's U.S. Open, Golfweek's Jeff Babineau reports.

Impact

Palmer got hot in April with three consecutive top-11 finishes, but has since cooled off in recent weeks, and he was an MDF at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. He's 20th on Tour in SG: off-the-tee, but sits just outside of the top 100 in terms of GIR percentage. Palmer has one career top-25 at a U.S. Open.

Dru Love has been added to the field for this week's U.S. Open, PGA Tour insider Ron Mintz reports.

Impact

Love, an Alabama alum, will turn professional on Thursday at Erin Hills with his decorated father, Davis Love, on the bag for him. "Dru" has appeared in just one PGA Tour event prior to this week, having missed the cut at the 2015 RSM Classic.

Jimmy Walker

Jimmy Walker (illness) will be in the field for this week's U.S. Open.

Impact

Walker hasn't played since mid-May's PLAYERS Championship as he looks to recover from Lyme disease, but he'll return to tournament action this week at Erin Hills. He's eighth on Tour in SG: off-the-tee and sixth in birdie average with 4.28 birdies per round. The 2016 PGA Championship winner has just one career top-25 at a U.S. Open, but if healthy, his game may fit the course this time around.
