Andres Gonzales carded a two-under 70 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 16-under and tied for 10th.

Impact

Gonzales should have posted a top-five finish at Glen Abbey this week after carding two eagles during his final round alone, but a double bogey on the scorable par-five 18th bumped him down the leaderboard. He ranked fourth among the field in SG: Approach, but struggled with his accuracy off the tee as he hit 43 percent of the fairways in regulation. At 156th in the FedExCup standings, he'll have some work to do in order to reach the playoffs, but he'll look to maintain momentum at the upcoming Barracuda Championship.

James Hahn

James Hahn fired a six-under 66 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 16-under and tied for 10th.

Impact

Hahn could have been in contention down the stretch if it weren't for a second-round 73, posting scores of 67 or better in his three other rounds. He played his last four holes of the tournament in five-under-par, including an eagle on the par-five 18th. Hahn has now made five consecutive cuts, and he's now qualified for next week's PGA Championship.

Seamus Power fired a six-under 66 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 16-under and tied for 10th.

Impact

Power's best round of the week on Sunday included five birdies in his last six holes, moving him 17 spots up the leaderboard and into the top-10. The rookie is now one spot outside the top-125 of the FedExCup standings, making eight cuts in his last nine starts. He'll be in the field at this week's Barracuda Championship.

Sean O'Hair

Sean O'Hair fired a seven-under 65 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 16-under and tied for 10th.

Impact

O'Hair jumped 21 spots up the leaderboard thanks to his best round of the week by three strokes on Sunday, when he carded eight birdies to just one bogey. He hit 76 percent of his greens in regulation throughout the week, but ranked just 63rd in terms of SG: Around-the-Green. The 47th-ranked player in the FedExCup standings is qualified for next week's PGA Championship.

Kevin Chappell

Kevin Chappell closed with a one-under 71 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 17-under and tied for eighth.

Impact

Chappell entered Sunday's final round at 16-under and in contention, but four bogeys throughout his last 18 holes ultimately kept him four shots out of the playoff between Jhonattan Vegas and Charley Hoffman. Chappell ranked ninth among the field in SG: Tee-to-Green and first in putts per GIR, leading to 24 birdies and two eagles. He's up to 30th in the FedExCup standings and is qualified for the upcoming WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson fired a five-under 67 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 17-under and tied for eighth.

Impact

Johnson's final round included three birdies and an eagle to zero bogeys, ascending eight spots up the leaderboard and into the top-10. He ranked sixth among the field in SG: Approach and fifth in SG: Tee-to-Green, but was just tied for 53rd in terms of SG: Putting. Johnson revealed earlier in the week that he still experiences back tightness from the pre-Masters injury, but that didn't appear to affect him much. He'll likely be in the field for the upcoming WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Robert Garrigus

Robert Garrigus closed with a three-under 69 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 18-under and tied for fifth.

Impact

Garrigus played his final two holes of the tournament in three-under-par to climb inside of the top five. He was runner-up among the field in SG: Approach and fourth in SG: Tee-to-Green at Glen Abbey. After a stretch of eight missed cuts in 10 events, Garrigus has now finished top-10 in back-to-back starts. He'll be in the field at this week's Barracuda Championship.

Tony Finau

Tony Finau closed with a four-under 68 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 18-under and tied for fifth.

Impact

Finau carded three eagles throughout his final two rounds alone, while also ranking second among the field in SG: Off-the-Tee. He now has six top-10s this season, but has yet to secure a win in 2017. He's not qualified for the upcoming WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, and he also doesn't plan to play in this week's Barracuda Championship.

Brandon Hagy closed with a four-under 68 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 18-under and tied for fifth.

Impact

Hagy's short game propelled him into the top-five this week, finishing fourth in SG: Putting and seventh in SG: Around-the-Green. He hit just 39 percent of his fairways, however, the second-lowest among those who made the cut. He's now made five consecutive cuts heading into this week's Barracuda Championship.

Gary Woodland

Gary Woodland carded a four-under 68 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 19-under and alone in fourth place.

Impact

Woodland's trio of bogeys during his final round kept him from contention with Charley Hoffman and Jhonattan Vegas at the top of the leaderboard, but he was still able to climb into the top-25 of the FedExCup standings. He led the field in SG: Approach and SG: Tee-to-Green, but he was just 65th in SG: Putting. Woodland is now qualified for the upcoming WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Ian Poulter

Ian Poulter fired an eight-under 64 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open to finish 20-under and alone in third place.

Impact

Poulter entered Sunday's final round outside of the top-15, but eight birdies to zero bogeys resulted in the best round of the day. He ranked second among the field in SG: Putting and fourth in putts per GIR throughout the tournament. He's now finished top-15 in three straight events, climbing to 62nd in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Charley Hoffman

Charley Hoffman fired a four-under 68 on Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open, but he ultimately fell to Jhonattan Vegas during the first playoff hole.

Impact

Hoffman is all the way up to 12th in the FedExCup standings despite failing to record a win so far this season, posting his sixth top-10 of 2017 at Glen Abbey. He was second in SG: Tee-to-Green this week, but struggled with the putter at times as he ranked T58 in putts per GIR. Hoffman is qualified for the upcoming WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Jhonattan Vegas

Jhonattan Vegas defeated Charley Hoffman in a playoff on Sunday to win the RBC Canadian Open for the second consecutive year.

Impact

Vegas surged into the lead with a seven-under 65 during his final round, eventually beating Charley Hoffman with a birdie on the first playoff hole. Vegas also led the field in birdies throughout the week with 27, while also carding just four bogeys and a double. He's now gone back-to-back at Glen Abbey, despite missing five straight cuts heading into this year's event. Vegas is qualified for the upcoming WGC-Bridgestone Invitational where he'll likely make his next start.

Chris Stroud is a last minute entry into the field at this week's RBC Canadian Open, Ron Mintz of MyGolfDaily.com reports.

Impact

Charlie Beljan withdrew from the field late Wednesday evening opening up a slot for Stroud. The 35-year-old is coming off three straight cuts made including a T35 at last week's Barbasol Championship. He could make an intriguing punt play in DFS formats, as he is likely to see low ownership given his last minute entry into the field.

Charlie Beljan (undisclosed) will not participate in this week's field at the RBC Canadian Open, Ron Mintz of MyGolfDaily.com reports.

Impact

After withdrawing two weeks ago at the John Deere Classic due to an undisclosed reason, Beljan was set to return to action this week. However, he has apparently suffered a setback. The 240th ranked player in the FedExCup standings will be replaced in the field by Chris Stroud.

Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson is still dealing with the effects of a back injury that forced him to withdraw from the Masters in April, Brentley Romine of GolfWeek.com reports.

Impact

Johnson, who infamously slipped on a flight of stairs prior to the 2017 Masters, continues to experience tightness in his back as he heads to the RBC Canadian Open this week. "No pain or anything like that. But it's still a little tight. I'm having to get worked on a good bit just to try to loosen up those muscles and those tendons where it got injured," Johnson said Wednesday regarding the injury. He's missed two cuts in his last three events and hasn't won since March, but he remains at No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking. At this point it doesn't sound like Johnson would withdraw during a start, but he might not be 100 percent for the PGA Championship in two weeks.

Jarrod Lyle will take an indefinite break from his playing career after he was recently admitted to an Australian hospital for treatment for a possible recurrence of leukemia, Ben Everill of PGATour.com reports.

Impact

Doctors will have Lyles undergo a series of tests to determine the nature of his illness, but the 35-year-old is fearful that he could be facing another battle with acute myeloid leukemia, a condition he was first diagnosed with in 1998. Lyle was able to return to golf two years later and enjoyed a successful professional career that included several seasons on the PGA Tour and two victories in Web.com events, before the leukemia resurfaced in 2012. He was able to resume playing in 2015 and had been hoping to take part in upcoming events in the PGA Tour of Australasia along with a few pro-ams, but it looks as though those plans will be tabled for now.

Matthew Fitzpatrick

Matthew Fitzpatrick struggled to a three-over 73 in the final round to finish in a tie for 44th place at the Open Championship.

Impact

Fitzpatrick was five-over before he made his first birdie at the the 15th hole on Sunday. The T44 this week tied his best finish at the Open Championship back when he was low amateur in 2013. Fitzpatrick is searching for his game right now as he has not finished inside the top-30 in his last five starts.

Joost Luiten

Joost Luiten shot a three-over 73 in the final round of the Open Championship to finish in a tie for 44th place.

Impact

It was a struggle for Luiten who made two birdies to five bogeys. This was still his best finish in the Open Championship. The 31-year-old has been very consistent over the last several months as he has made 18 of 19 cuts. Surprisingly he only has one top-10 during that stretch.

Kevin Na

Kevin Na shot a two-over 72 in the final round of the Open Championship and came home in a tie for 44th place.

Impact

Na made three bogeys and only managed one birdie on Sunday. A birdie-free five-over second round hurt him the most this week in the worst of the conditions. Na has played in 21 events thus far this season and has three top-10's and five top-25's. His performance has been off comparing to what he did last year when he racked up eight top-10's and 14 top-25's, including four top-three results. Na is not in the field for the RBC Canadian Open.
