Tiger Woods is one of the famous names in sports and perhaps one of the most successful professionals. He has gathered great wealth throughout his career and even outside the golf. But how did he get so much wealth in 2021 when fighting against injuries caused by almost fatal car accidents?
Despite not playing the 2020-2021 season, former World Number One accumulated a whopping $73.5 in total earnings last year. According to Sportico, he is the 10 highest-paid athlete globally in 2022, and he is the only golfer in the top 20. Moreover, he climbed up three spots from 2021, where he was in the 13th position on the list. Woods was also the highest-paid golfer over the past year.
Tiger Woods collected $ 8.5 million through salary and victory, including $ 8 million which he won through the PGA Tour player’s impact program. But the main source of income is marketing offerings and support with several large companies in the world.
He jacked up a whopping $65 million through endorsements, the third-highest for any athlete. He received this mammoth amount from 10 companies associated with the 82-time PGA Tour winner. Those 10 companies are Nike, Rolex, Bridgestone, Monster Energy, Hero Motocorp, Taylormade, GolfTV, Full Swing Simulators, Kowa, and Centinel Spine. Moreover, his figures prove that even if the five-time Masters winner does not play much, he will receive huge sums through his endorsement deals.
Apart from his endorsement deals,Tiger Woods runs a successful golf design company, TGR Design. He commands $10 million upfront to design a golf course and has built layouts throughout the globe. Moreover, Tiger recently opened a 36-hole putting golf course in Sarasota, Florida, namely PopStroke.
