Jhonattan Vegas

Jhonattan Vegas shot a one-under 69 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to close his season with a tie for 24th place.

Impact

Vegas just didn't have his best stuff at East Lake. He ranked outside the top-20 in both strokes gained tee-to-green and strokes gained putting. Vegas closed the year making his final nine cuts on the PGA Tour. This was the Venezuelan's best season on tour as he posted 12 top-25's and five top-10's which were both career highs for him. Vegas also got his first win on the PGA Tour since 2011 when he claimed the title this July at the RBC Canadian Open. We should see Vegas play in some fall events on the PGA Tour in the coming months.

Kevin Na

Kevin Na shot an even-par 70 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, but ended up finishing 29th.

Impact

Na played was the first player out on Sunday as he played by himself due to Jason Day's withdrawal which left an odd number of players. He played his round in under two hours and closed it out with four straight birdies. Other than that, it was a really tough week for Na who was last in strokes gained tee-to-green and third to last in strokes gained putting. For the season, however, Na played very good golf. He had 14 top-25 finishes for the third consecutive year, and also had the most top-10 finishes in his career since 2009 with eight. Expect to see Na play some of the fall events on the PGA Tour.

Justin Thomas

Justin Thomas closed with a three-under 67 to finish in a tie for sixth place at the TOUR Championship.

Impact

Thomas had a strong putting week as he was sixth in strokes gained putting. That comes as a surprise as for the season Thomas is 131st in that category. The Alabama alum picked up his first win at the CIMB Classic. In addition to that, Thomas also notched seven top-10 finishes this year and five top-three finishes. It's not quite clear yet when we will see Thomas next, but he will be motivated after missing out on the Ryder Cup.

Russell Knox

Russell Knox shot a two-over 72 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to finish in 23rd place.

Impact

Knox posted three birdies to five bogeys on Sunday for his 72. Despite being the third most accurate driver for the week he couldn't take advantage as he was T26th out of 30 players in greens in regulation. It was an incredible season for Knox who posted two victories and two other runner-up finishes. He also posted a career high in top-10 finishes and made cuts. Despite his tremendous play he was omitted as a captain's pick for the European Ryder Cup team. We will likely see Knox play on the European Tour later this year.

Jimmy Walker

Jimmy Walker fired a two-under 68 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to finish in 28th place.

Impact

It was a very tough week for Walker who finished dead last in strokes gained putting and hit less than 40% of the fairways on the tough East Lake layout. Walker finished 14th in the final FedExCup standings. He also closed out the campaign with 12 top-25's and five top-10 finishes. Despite having fewer wins than 2014 and 2015, he notched the biggest victory of his career at the PGA Championship at Baltusrol. Walker will look to help Team USA win the Ryder Cup for the first time since 2008.

Kevin Kisner

Kevin Kisner closed with a one-over 71 at the TOUR Championship to finish in 26th place.

Impact

Kisner struggled with his ball striking at the TOUR Championship as he finished 28th out of 30 players in strokes gained tee-to-green. He finishes the year with six top-25 finishes and ten top-10 finishes to go along with his first career win at the RSM Classic. It's not quite clear when we will see Kisner back in action.

J.B. Holmes

J.B. Holmes shot a two-over 72 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to finish in 27th place.

Impact

Despite leading the field in driving distance, Holmes struggled mightily with his putting as he was 29th out of 30 players in putts per green. After an impressive T4 result at the BMW Championship and being added as a captain's pick to the Ryder Cup team, a lot of people had high expectations of Holmes. He failed to break par in any of the four rounds. He finished in the 30th position in the FedExCup standings, which is Holmes' second highest finish of his career. Holmes will look to help the U.S. Ryder Cup team take home a win at Hazeltine.

Patrick Reed

Patrick Reed shot an even-par 70 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to finish in a tie for 24th place.

Impact

Reed came into the TOUR Championship in the second position in the FedExCup point standings. It just wasn't the Barclays champion's best week as he was in the lower half of the 30 man field in both strokes gained tee-to-green and strokes gained putting. This was arguably the best year of Reed's career at he set career highs in top-25's and top-10 finishes with 18 and 11 respectively. We will see Reed next week at the Ryder Cup where he will look to help Team USA win for the first time since 2008.

Phil Mickelson

Phil Mickelson rallied to a four-under 66 performance, Sunday at the Tour Championship, to finish alone in 22nd.

Impact

Mickelson got out to a poor start at East Lake, posting rounds of 74-72. He rebounded from the first 36, however, rallying to rounds of 69-66 over the weekend to snag his fifth top-25 in his last seven outings. Expect Lefty to serve as a major veteran presence on the Ryder Cup team this week.

Roberto Castro

Roberto Castro closed with an even-par 70 to finish in a tie for 17th at the TOUR Championship.

Impact

Aside from an opening round of 73, it was a pretty solid week for Castro at East Lake, posting rounds of 70-67-70. He finished first in strokes gained around-the-green, but struggled in most other departments, losing strokes in the three remaining categories. Most notably was a constant struggle with the driver as he lost over three strokes off the tee alone. He'll hope to improve ahead of the fall series.

William McGirt

William McGirt carded a two-under 68 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to get back to even-par for the week and in a tie for 17th.

Impact

The 2016 PGA Tour season was a major rebound for McGirt, who rose from 123rd in the OWGR all the way to 40th. The American snagged his first career PGA Tour victory at the Memorial Tournament back in May, and also tallied an impressive 11 top-25 showings on the year. He'll hope to keep stay in form when the Fall Series rolls around in a couple of weeks.

Jordan Spieth

Jordan Spieth closed with a two-under 68 on Sunday to finish T17 at the TOUR Championship, and ninth place overall in the FedEx Cup.

Impact

While notching two victories and two runner-up finishes on the year, the 2016 PGA Tour season will go down as a bit of a disappointment for the former world number one. There are now three names ahead of him in the OWGR, and several players vying for his fourth spot in the ranking. The American will hope to get things back on track and gain his competitive edge competing for the USA at the upcoming Ryder Cup.

Sean O'Hair surged to a five-under 65 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to catapult up nine spots on the leaderboard into a tie for 17th.

Impact

Coming into the FedEx Cup Playoffs, O'Hair sat in 118th in the rankings. He was a long-shot to make it to East Lake, but with a runner-up showing at The Barclays and solid weeks the rest of the way through, the American was able to leave his mark, finishing 27th in the FedEx Cup this year. O'Hair will hope to maintain his status in the top 100 of the OWGR as 2016 winds down.

Matt Kuchar

Matt Kuchar closed with a one-under 69 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to finish T15.

Impact

Aside from a poor 73 in the second round, Kuchar was solid, posting scores of 69-68-69. He finished first in driving accuracy, hitting 71% of fairways, and also looked solid with his irons, drilling the fifth most greens in regulation on the week. Look for Kuchar to be a major veteran contributor to the upcoming Ryder Cup team.

Charl Schwartzel

Charl Schwartzel fell to a one-over 71 in the final round of the TOUR Championship, but still managed to remain in a tie for 10th place.

Impact

While struggling a bit in the end of summer, the close to the 2016 PGA Tour season was very encouraging for Schwartzel who managed T4 and T10 finishes to close out. This left him in 25th in the FedEx rankings, but his season seemed even better than that with five top-10s on tour in 2016. The South African will likely return to the Euro Tour where he will hope to accumulate more points in the Race to Dubai standings.

Emiliano Grillo

Emiliano Grillo carded a one-under 69 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to finish in a tie for tenth place, and in 11th in the FedEx Cup.

Impact

What a rookie season it was for Grillo. Following a victory at the Web.com Tour Championship last year, the Argentine immediately made his name known with a victory in the fall series' Frys.com Open. While the winner's circle eluded him in 2016, Grillo remains the top candidate for rookie of the year honors considering he has missed no cuts since May, and has recorded 11 top-25s, including two runner-up finishes. It should come as no surprise if the rookie works his way from 25th in the OWGR to even higher heights as 2016 winds down.

Bubba Watson

Bubba Watson rallied to a three-under 67 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to finish T10.

Impact

Although getting off to a rocky start, Watson managed to work his way back into the top ten with a seven-under weekend showing. He has now finished in the top 25 in five of his last six events, and seems to be an early favorite to snag the last spot for the Ryder Cup team which takes place later this week.

Brandt Snedeker

Brandt Snedeker shot a 3-under 67 Sunday to tie for 17th at the TOUR Championship.

Impact

Snedeker was solid in the putting category finishing fifth in strokes gained putting but was a dismal 28th our of 30 in strokes gained tee-to-green, which ultimately held him back this week. Snedeker finished the season with seven top-10s including a win at Torrey Pines. Snedeker has notched six victories in the past five seasons so this year was very much in line with what we have come to expect from the Tennessean.

Daniel Berger

Daniel Berger closed with a 2-under 68 Sunday to tie for 15th at the TOUR Championship, and 26th in the overall FedEx Cup standings.

Impact

Berger squeaked his way into the TOUR Championship with a top-10 at the BMW Championship but only managed to finish middle of the pack in the TOUR Championship. Despite the average finish to cap the season, Berger accomplished enough to validate last year's great rookie season, with six top-10s including his maiden win at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in June.

Gary Woodland

Gary Woodland posted a three-under 67 on Sunday, moving up four spots on the leaderboard into a tie for tenth at the TOUR Championship.

Impact

While hurt by a two-over start through 36 holes, Woodland rallied over the weekend to rounds of 69-67 to finish two-in-the-red. He looked great with the driver, finishing T5 in strokes gained from tee-to-green. He did, however, struggle with the flat-stick placing 26th in putts-per-GIR. All in all though, it was a great close to the year for the American as he moved within the top 50 of the OWGR, and placed in the top 25 in each of his last four outings.
