    Since the launch of the FedExCup Playoffs in 2007, 35 players have qualified in each of the seven years. Just three players have qualified for the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola every year -- Phil Mickelson, Steve Stricker and Hunter Mahan. And only Mahan has appeared in every Playoffs event (28 total) in that span.

    Of those 35 FedExCup Playoffs "streakers," 30 are set to maintain the streak for an eighth consecutive season, based on current FedExCup projections.

    That leaves five players who enter this week's Wyndham Championship outside the top 125 in points needed to qualify for next week's Playoffs opener, The Barclays. All five of those players -- Brian Gay, J.J. Henry, John Merrick, John Rollins and Charlie Wi -- are in the field and ready to make one last push.

    Here's a look at each Playoffs "streaker" and his current FedExCup rank, as well as his projected status based on current points projections from Colombia University professor Mark Broadie. Points projections going into Wyndham are as follows: 437 points needed for The Barclays; 601 points needed for Deutsche Bank Championship; 874 points needed for BMW Championship; 1,732 points needed for TOUR Championship.
