News: Els shot a 3-over 73 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to finish in 68th place, next-to-last among those that made the cut.
Impact: This wasn't a great finish for Els, but on the positive side it did mark his third consecutive made cut which ties for his longest such streak of the season. He also is only a week removed from his T25 finish at the PGA Championship, which almost matched his T22 finish at the Masters for his best finish in a major this season. Unfortunately for Els, he did not qualify for this year's FedExCup playoffs.

News: Els enters the PGA championship looking for his first top-20 finish in a Major this season.
Impact: Els finished in a T22 in the Masters, but fell to a T54 finish at the US Open and a T65 at the Open Championship. He is not playing his best golf, having missed the cut in four of his last eight starts with no finish better than T46 since the Masters in April.
