Cape Town - The opportunity to qualify for the PGA Tour's season-ending FedEx Cup playoffs has come and gone, with several notable players missing out.

As the last regular season event on this year's PGA Tour schedule, the Wyndham Championship was the last chance for players to play their way into the Top 125 who qualify for the first event of the three-week FedEx Cup playoffs, the Northern Trust starting on Thursday.

Only two players outside the top 125 managed to play their way into it in North Carolina last week - Patton Kizzire and Andrew Landry.

Kizzire played his way in from No 129 and Andrew Landry from 134th.

The list of players who failed to qualify includes a couple of PGA Tour champions this season, several former major winners and a former world No 1:

Martin Trainer, who won the Puerto Rico Open in February

Jim Herman, who won the Barbasol Championship in July

Zack Sucher, whose second-place finish in the Travelers got him out of serious financial trouble

Adam Svensson, the only golfer on Tour to post a 61 twice this season

Zach Johnson, a two-time major winner

Martin Kaymer, a two-time major winner

Jason Dufner, a major winner

Jimmy Walker, a major winner

Luke Donald, a former World No 1

Alex Noren, a 10-time European Tour winner
