Impact

He really struggled with his ball striking as he was 51st in strokes gained tee-to-green for the week. Hurley's scrambling ability helped him to avoid dropping too many strokes as he was third in strokes gained around-the-green. He has made six of eight cuts so far with two top-25 finishes which is actually just one off his total from last season. Hurley will tee it up at the Honda Classic this week.

It was on these tricky poa annua greens where he ran into trouble as he finished 56th in strokes gained putting. This is his third made cut in six starts this season. Watney will be looking to grab his first top-10 of the season at the Honda Classic.

Patrick Rodgers

Patrick Rodgers struggled in the final round as he shot a two-over 73 to drop into a tie for 22nd place at the Genesis Open.

Impact

Rodgers got off to a decent start with two birdie in his first six holes, but didn't record a birdie in his final 12 holes and had four bogeys. His poor finished dropped him 17 spots in the final round. He had a nice driving week finishing the week 13th in strokes gained off-the-tee. Rodgers struggled, however, on these poa annua greens as he was 58th in putts per green. He has made just four out of nine cuts this season, but in all his made cuts he has finished inside the top-25 including two top-10's. Rodgers will tee it up at the Honda Classic this week.

Sung Kang posted a two-under 69 in the final round of the Genesis Open to finish in a tie for 22nd place.

Impact

Kang was able to make three eagles this week which helped to offset the 13 bogeys he made. His ball striking this week was excellent as evidence by his third ranking in strokes gained tee-to-green for the week. Where he struggled was on the greens as he was just 61st in strokes gained putting. In 11 starts this season Kang has made just four cuts, but three of those are top-25 finishes. He will be in the field for this week's Honda Classic.

Branden Grace

Branden Grace shot a one-over 72 in the final round of the Genesis Open to drop into a tie for 22nd place.

Impact

After a 67 in round one, Grace struggled to get anything going the rest of the week as he played the last 54 holes in just two-under. The South African finished the week 25th in strokes gained putting and 36th in strokes gained tee-to-green. In five events this season on the PGA Tour, Grace has made all of his cuts and now has two top-25 finishes. He will be gunning for his third such result at this week's Honda Classic.

JT Poston shot a two-under 69 in his final round to come home in a tie for 17th place at the Genesis Open.

Impact

Poston got off to a hot start in the event as he sat at seven-under thought his first two rounds, but was unable to make up any more ground in his final two rounds. He struggled scrambling wise as he finished 66th in strokes gained around-the-green for the week. He was able to make up with stellar iron play to give him plenty of good looks as he was 15th in strokes gained approach-to-green. In 10 events this season, Poston has made seven cuts and this T17 result marked his first top-25 finish of the year. He will be in the field for this week's Honda Classic.

Luke Donald

Luke Donald shot an up and down one-under 70 in the final round of the Genesis Open to finish in a tie for 17th place.

Impact

Donald carded an eagle and three birdies to four bogeys for his 70 on Sunday. That was the week for Donald in a nutshell, he made 18 birdies which was T4 in the field, but made 13 bogeys. It was impressive to make as many birdies as he did because he averaged just 257 yards off the tee which was 71st in the field. Donald finished top-20 in both greens in regulation and putts per green. This is now his second straight top-25 of the season and he will look to make it three straight at the Honda Classic this week.

Graham DeLaet

Graham DeLaet fired a three-under 68 in the final round of the Genesis Open to finish in a tie for 17th place.

Impact

He started on the back and was four-under through his first 10 holes before playing the last eight in one-over. DeLaet had no issues making birdies this week finishing with 19 which was third most in the field. However, he made 10 bogeys and a double-bogey which derailed his chances of contending up in the top-five. DeLaet was 22nd in strokes gained tee-to-green and 32nd in strokes gained putting. In seven starts this season the Canadian has made five cuts including three top-25 finishes. He will be shooting for another one at this week's Honda Classic.

Impact

After withdrawing last week, Henry put on his best performance in 10 starts this season that included shooting under-par in all four rounds. His ball striking was on this week as he ranked ninth in the field in strokes gained tee-to-green. Henry just wasn't able to convert the good chances he gave himself as he was just T45 in strokes gained putting. He will tee it up at the Honda Classic this week.

K.J. Choi

K.J. Choi fired a three-under 68 in the final round of the Genesis Open to finish in a tie for 17th place.

Impact

Choi was consistent all week as he was under-par in every round. He didn't have his finest ball striking week as he finished 53rd in strokes gained approach-to-green, but was proficient on the greens ranking 13th in strokes gained putting. This is just the second cut that Choi has made in eight starts this season and his previous best finish was a 75th at the CIMB Classic. He is not in the field for this week's Honda Classic.

Jhonattan Vegas

Jhonattan Vegas carded a two-under 69 in the final round of the Genesis Open to finish in a tie for 15th place.

Impact

Vegas led all of the golfers in the late-early draw for the opening two rounds at seven-under in significantly harder conditions than those who received the early-late draw. The Venezuelan only hit 54 percent of the greens which was T63 in the field, but scrambled well finishing second in strokes gained around-the-green. Vegas has made his last seven cuts and also has recorded two top-15 finishes this season. He will be in the field for this week's Honda Classic.

Howell shot a final round two-under 69 on Sunday to finish in a tie for 15th place at the Genesis Open.

Impact

Howell made just 11 birdies for the week which was tied for 60th most in the field, but he made just five bogeys which was tied for the second fewest in the field. He had another great ball striking week as he finished seventh in strokes gained tee-to-green and second in greens in regulation. Howell did struggle on these tricky Riviera greens as he was 40th in strokes gained putting. He is off to a very hot start this season after a MC and T39 result in his first two starts of the season with seven straight top-25 finishes, including three top-10's. He will look to keep that streak alive at this week's Honda Classic.

Bill Haas

Bill Haas closed with a two-under 69 in the final round of the Genesis Open to come home in a tie for 11th place.

Impact

Haas was pretty stagnant out of the gates as he played the first 36 holes in even-par and made the cut right on the number. He was finally able to get things rolling in his third round with a seven-under 64. Haas' short game was very tidy this week as he ranked fourth in strokes gained around-the-green. He also was a solid 17th in strokes gained putting. The 2011 FedExCup Champion is off to a really nice start as he has finished inside the top-20 in all six of his starts this year. He will not be in the field for this week's Honda Classic.

Seung-yul Noh

Seung-yul Noh closed with a four-under 67 on Sunday to jump into a tie for 11th position at the Genesis Open.

Impact

Noh had six birdies to two bogeys in his final round. He made the cut by just one shot, but with a pair of 67's on the weekend it allowed him to jump into a top-15 finish. Noh was eighth for the week in strokes gained tee-to-green and 29th in strokes gained putting. He appears to be in good form after a T8 performance last week. Noh is in the field for this week's Honda Classic.

Brendan Steele

Brendan Steele closed with an even-par 71 on Sunday at the Genesis Open to finish three-under and tied for 39th.

Impact

Steele had a bit of an up-and-down week at Riviera, posting scores of 69-73-68-71 as he extended his streak of cuts made on Tour to 12. He is averaging a whopping $221,044 in earning per entry this season, but remains moderately priced in most daily fantasy formats heading into this week's Honda Classic, where he has finished top 15 in back-to-back years.

Brooks Koepka

Brooks Koepka carded a two-round score of five-over-par at the Genesis Open to miss the cut by five strokes.

Impact

Koepka has sandwiched a T42 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open with two missed cuts, while he's fallen outside of the top 20 in the OWGR. He'll look to turn it around at this week's Honda Classic where he has made three consecutive cuts, but failed to finish inside the top 25.

Brandt Snedeker

Brandt Snedeker carded a two-round total of two-over-par to miss the cut by two strokes at the Genesis Open.

Impact

Snedeker entered the event having notched four top-15 finishes in his previous five starts, but the missed cut did not ultimately change his position in the Official World Golf Ranking (No. 24). He'll have the upcoming week off in order to prepare for the WGC-Mexico Championship in early March.

Matt Kuchar

Matt Kuchar fired a three-under 68 during his final round at the Genesis Open to finish six-under and tied for 22nd.

Impact

Kuchar bounced back from a missed cut at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am with his fourth top-25 finish of the season. His week was highlighted by short-game success, finishing fifth among the field in terms of strokes gained: around-the-green. The 20th-ranked golfer in the world is qualified for the upcoming WGC-Mexico Championship in early March, but he has yet to commit the playing in the event.

Sergio Garcia

Sergio Garcia closed with an even-par 71 on Sunday at the Genesis Open to finish two-under and tied for 49th.

Impact

Garcia was only to break par once throughout the week at Riviera, posting a second-round 67 in order to make the cut. He finished top five in both strokes gained: off-the-tee and strokes gained: tee-to-green, but his stellar ball striking couldn't quite make up for his severe struggles with the putter. He figures to be one of the favorites at this week's Honda Classic where he finished runner-up in 2016.

Patrick Reed

Patrick Reed posted a three-over 74 in his final round of the Genesis Open to finish tied for 59th at even-par.

Impact

Reed's roller coaster week included scores of 72-69-69-74 as he finished seventh in strokes gained: around-the-green, but struggled with his ball striking as he was 68th in strokes gained: tee-to-green. Reed has fallen outside of the top 10 in the OWGR for the first time since August, but he continued his impressive streak of made cuts, which now extends to 17 in a row. He's slated to tee it up next in early March at the WGC-Mexico Championship.
