Angel Cabrera

Angel Cabrera (shoulder) is in the field for this week's Barracuda Championship.

Impact

Cabrera most recently withdrew from the Barbasol Championship during his second round due to a shoulder injury, but he plans on teeing it up again this week barring any setbacks. He hasn't made a cut on the PGA Tour since May's DEAN & DeLuca Invitational.

Harold Varner lll

Varner settled for an even-par 72 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to finish in a tie for 23rd place.

Impact

Varner had two eagles and 19 birdies to 10 bogeys at Glen Abbey this week. He really struck it well as he was 10th in SG: Tee-to-green and T15 in greens in regulation. Varner just couldn't roll the ball well enough on the greens as he was 66th in SG: Putting. Varner now sits 133rd in the FedExCup standings with five top-25 finishes. He will look to make a run the next couple weeks to try to make the top-125 cutoff for the playoffs.

Martin Kaymer

Martin Kaymer has withdrawn from the upcoming WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship due to a shoulder injury, according to a personal post on his Facebook page.

Impact

Kaymer has missed three cuts in his last six events, likely due to the shoulder injury that will keep him sidelined for the next couple of weeks. Upon his recovery, he intends to return to the European Tour in Denmark.

Camilo Villegas

Camilo Villegas has elected to withdraw from this week's Barracuda Championship due to an undisclosed reason, Rob Bolton of PGATour.com reports.

Impact

Villegas has made the cut in three consecutive starts for the first time since November, but he'll take this week off for an unknown reason.

Chez Reavie

Chez Reavie shot a two-under 70 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to finish in a tie for 23rd place.

Impact

Reavie shot under-par in all four rounds which was a must at a very scoreable course like Glen Abbey. That was impressive considering how poorly he hit the ball as he ranked T70 in greens in regulation and 65th in SG: Off-the-tee. He made up for it by coming in eighth in SG: Around-the-green and 13th in SG: Putting. Reavie has now notched top-25 finishes in three of his last five starts. He sits 63rd in the FedExCup standings as the playoffs approach. Reavie is not in the field for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Nicholas Thompson has withdrawn from this week's Barracuda Championship, Rob Bolton of PGATour.com reports.

Impact

Thompson is scheduled to play in the Web.com Tour's Ellie Mae Classic this week, removing the Barracuda Championship from his agenda. Alternate Brendon Todd will get a spot in the field as a result.

Andrew Loupe has elected to withdraw from this week's Barracuda Championship, Rob Bolton of PGATour.com reports.

Impact

The reason for Loupe's withdrawal is unclear at this point, while he currently ranks just 185th in the FedExCup standings. He's also not qualified for next week's PGA Championship.

Seung-yul Noh

Seung-yul Noh carded a bogey-free four-under 68 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to finish in a tie for 23rd place.

Impact

Noh made 19 birdies and an eagle to eight bogeys this week. He ranked 14th in SG: Putting and 20th in SG: Approach. Noh was also top-15 in both greens in regulation and putts per GIR. It has been a solid season for Noh who sits 93rd in the FedExCup standings. He has three top-10's and seven top-25's, but has missed 12 cuts. Noh is not in the field for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Jason Gore has withdrawn from this week's Barracuda Championship due to a scheduling conflict, Rob Bolton of PGATour.com reports.

Impact

Gore is scheduled to play in this week's Ellie Mae Classic on the Web.com Tour, so he won't appear at the Barracuda Championship. He's just 205th in the FedExCup standings this season, making one cut in five events.

David Duval has withdrawn from this week's Barracuda Championship due to an undisclosed reason, Rob Bolton of PGATour.com reports.

Impact

Duval hasn't been relevant on Tour in quite some time, so his withdrawal from the Barracuda Championship comes with little fantasy implication. He'll be replaced in the field by alternate Robert Allenby.

Rory Mcllroy

Rory McIlroy has split from his caddie J.P. Fitzgerald, ESPN's Jason Sobel reports.

Impact

McIlroy had been with Fitzgerald for nine years and the duo won four majors together, but recent struggles marked a time for change. A replacement has not yet been announced, but there will be someone new on the bag for McIlroy at the upcoming WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship.

Tyrone Van Aswegen shot a final round one-under 71 to finish in a tie for 19th place at the RBC Canadian Open.

Impact

The South African was only able to muster two birdies on Sunday on the easy Glen Abbey set up. Van Aswegen led the field this week in SG: Around-the-green. He was also T9 in putts per GIR and 20th in SG: Tee-to-green. Not many players have played as many tournament as Van Aswegen this season. He has made 18 of 29 cuts, with four top-25 results. Van Aswegen is 113th in the FedExCup standings and is in good shape to make the playoffs.

Cheng-Tsung Pan closed with a four-under 68 to finish in a tie for 14th place at the RBC Canadian Open.

Impact

Pan made seven birdies to three bogeys in his final round. He went 47 holes in the middle of his tournament without a bogey before his bogey on the third hole on Sunday. A big key for Pan was the flat stick as he led the field in SG: Putting this week. He didn't have his best ball striking tournament as he ranked 42nd in SG: Tee-to-green. Pan has had a very up and down season. He has made just 11 of 26 cuts, but has three top-10's including a runner-up at the Farmers Insurance Open back in January. Pan did not make the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational field.

Martin Flores posted a two-under 70 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to finish in a tie for 19th place.

Impact

Flores got off to a very slow start as he was two-over through his first 12 holes with no birdies. He held the 36-hole lead at 12-under, but went just two-under over the weekend and finished seven shots out of the lead. Flores was fourth in SG: Off-the-tee and T15 in greens in regulation. This is now his fifth straight made cut. Flores will have work to do to make it into the top-125 for the FedExCup playoffs. He currently sits in the 142nd position.

Brandt Snedeker

Brandt Snedeker (ribs) has withdrawn from this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational due to a sternum joint injury, Rex Hoggard of the Golf Channel reports.

Impact

Snedeker was unable to make a single start throughout July due to the rib injury, but he intends to play in next week's PGA Championship barring any setbacks. He could be a bit rusty during his eventual return, but he finished top-15 in his previous two events at the Travelers Championship and U.S. Open.

J.B. Holmes

J.B. Holmes fired a four-under 68 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 15-under and tied for 14th.

Impact

Holmes' bogey-free, five-under 32 on the back nine Sunday included three birdies and an eagle on the par-five 13th. Holmes finished 30th and 14th in the FedExCup standings the past two seasons, but he's currently just 85th despite a respectable cut percentage. He has only two top-10s throughout his 2016-17 campaign, but will look to add another at either the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational or PGA Championship.

Sam Saunders settled for an even-par 72 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open and finished in a tie for 19th place.

Impact

The now 30-year-old was looking to get his first win on the PGA Tour. Saunders got off to a great start as he was three-under through his first six holes. Unfortunately he fell apart on the back nine as he made five bogeys in a three-over 40. Saunders was sixth in SG: Putting and 30th in SG: Tee-to-green. He has now made his last three cuts and has notched his sixth top-25 result of the year. Saunders will not be in the field for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Vijay Singh

Vijay Singh closed with a four-under 68 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 15-under and tied for 14th.

Impact

Singh, who missed seven consecutive cuts earlier in 2017, has now made three cuts in his last six events, including a pair of top-16s. This week at Glen Abbey, he ranked sixth among the field in SG: Around-the-Green and 13th in putts per GIR, while hitting two-thirds of the greens in regulation. He won't be in the field at this week's Barracuda Championship or WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, but he's qualified for next week's PGA Championship.

Matt Every

Matt Every shot a two-under 70 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to grab a share for 14th place.

Impact

Every had a great week on the greens as he was third in SG: Putting and T5 in putts per GIR. This was a much needed result for Every who has made the cut just six times in 28 starts this season. His T14 this week was his best result in any PGA Tour event since his win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational back in 2015. Every is not in the field for the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. He will look for some more consistency to close the year out.

Keegan Bradley

Keegan Bradley fired a seven-under 65 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 15-under and tied for 14th.

Impact

Bradley's even-par 72 during his third round kept him from a top-10 finish, but seven birdies to no bogeys on Sunday was good enough to move 23 spots up the leaderboard and into the top-15. He led the field in SG: Off-the-Tee as he hit 71 percent of his fairways in regulation, but he had trouble on the greens with the putter. Bradley has made five straight cuts and is qualified for next week's PGA Championship.
