News: Perez tied for 20th at the Barclays on Sunday at 4-under 276 and will play in this week's playoff event.
Impact: The veteran moved from 54th to 46th in the point standings, virtually guaranteeing him a third playoff event. The BMW Championship takes place two week's after the Deutsche Bank Championship, which begins on Friday. Perez has never reached the Tour Championship during the FedEx Cup era, but he's got a chance to do it this year. It would be quite an accomplishment for the soon-to-be 40-year-old with one career win.

News: Perez is set for his ninth go-round in the PGA Championship this week.
Impact: It also will be Perez's 18th career major. His best finish came in the 2005 PGA, when he tied for sixth. But he didn't take part in the two editions at Whistling Straits. Perez is currently 52nd in points, enjoying one of his best seasons on tour. But don't translate that into thinking he'll make a good showing this week.

News: Perez returns to actions this week at the Canadian Open.
Impact: Perez currently sits 58th in the point standings, well within playoff reach, but he surely would like to ensure at least a third playoff event, which means he need to be in the top 60 after the first two. Based on past performance, Glen Abbey may not help -- Perez has missed the cut there the past two years.
