All the ways Tiger Woods still makes money
He hasn't won a major championship in almost ten years, but Tiger Woods remains one of the richest athletes in the world.

The golfer who passes the USGA's test of Erin Hills and wins the 2017 U.S. Open will be rewarded with a record-setting paycheck.

The winner of this year's national championship receives a whopping $2.16 million of the $12 million total purse. Both are records for the sport.

Dustin Johnson earned $1.8 million of the $10 million purse for winning the Open at Oakmont last year, but in February the USGA announced it was bumping the purse for 2017 to $12 million.

Sergio Garcia won $1.98 million for winning the Masters in April, which boasted a total purse of $11 million.

A payout breakdown for each finish can be seen below.
