    All-time shots in the FedExCup Playoffs

    The FedExCup Playoffs are here!

    With the Regular Season concluding Sunday at the Wyndham Championship, the top 125 in the FedExCup standings have qualified for golf’s postseason and an opportunity to take home the PGA TOUR’s season-long prize.

    To get you prepared for the trio of Playoffs events, here’s a closer look at the 125 men who have qualified for this week’s FedEx St. Jude Championship at TPC Southwind outside Memphis. The top 70 in the FedExCup standings after the Playoffs opener will qualify for the BMW Championship at Wilmington (Del.) Country Club, with 30 moving on to the season finale, the TOUR Championship at Atlanta’s historic East Lake Country Club.

    Some players are focused on merely advancing to the next week. Others have their eyes on the top spot in the standings and the two-stroke head start that will give them under the TOUR Championship’s unique format, which staggers players’ starting position by their FedExCup standing. The man standing atop the leaderboard at East Lake on Aug. 28 will win both the TOUR Championship and FedExCup.

    Here's a look at every man who still has a chance to hoist the FedExCup.
