RICH! Tiger Woods is now a billionaire

Tiger Woods has made more than $1.4 billion since turning pro in 1996.

More than $122 million of that came from on-course winnings. He’s No. 1 on the all-time money list, by far. He won $4.6 million at the Tour Championship alone — $1.6 million for winning the tournament and $3.0 million for his second-place finish in the FedEx Cup — one of his biggest paydays ever in golf.

Roger Federer recently passed Woods as the highest-paid athlete of all time from a non-team sport. According to Forbes, Woods is now a billionaire, joining LeBron James as the only athletes to achieve the status while still active. But the real money comes from off the course. At his peak in the late 2000s, Woods made $100 million annually off the course. In 2020, Woods raked in $60 million in endorsements.
