The seventh edition of the FedExCup Playoffs is in the books after the TOUR's top 125 players competed to win golf's biggest prize.

A total of 46 players had participated every year in the first six editions of the FedExCup Playoffs.

Going into the 2013 PGA TOUR Season finale at Sedgefield, 35 of those players were inside the top 125 bubble and eyeing a seventh Playoffs appearance and each of them qualified.

That left 11 players outside the top 125 and in danger of seeing their perfect attendance records end. Those players included: Padraig Harrington, Chad Campbell, Vijay Singh (the 2008 FedExCup champ), David Toms, Jonathan Byrd, Troy Matteson, Sean O'Hair, Robert Allenby, Heath Slocum, Kevin Na and J.B. Holmes. None of eight players listed made up enough ground to qualify for The Barclays while Slocum, Na and Holmes all knew prior to the week that their streaks were ending because they did not play at Sedgefield.

Here's the list of 46 players -- 35 in the Playoffs and 11 out -- who had made each of the first six editions of the Playoffs with each one's final FedExCup rank each year (note: 144 players made the FedExCup Playoffs in 2007 and 2008):
