Tiger Woods’s net worth and career earnings are insane

November 22, 2018

Tiger Woods’s net worth has slowly been increasing ever since he jumped onto the golf scene years ago.

In 2016 Forbes listed Woods’s net worth at a whopping $740 million. That ranked him No. 7 on Forbes’ list of America’s Wealthiest Celebrities.

Woods ranked 66th in Forbes’ 2018 list of America’s highest paid celebrities with $43.3 million in earnings. Only $1.3 million came from winnings that season, yet he had $42 million in endorsements. That ranked him 16th on Forbes’ highest paid athletes list.

The list compiles pretax earnings from June 1, 2017, to June 1, 2018, and deducts manager, lawyer and agents fees.

According to Forbes at the time of publication, Woods’s main sponsors include Upper Deck, TaylorMade, Monster Energy, Bridgestone, Hero Motocorp, Nike and Rolex.

Woods also ranked 2nd in Forbes’ list of the 25 highest-paid athletes of all time, which was published in December 2017. That list factored earning estimates, winnings, endorsements, appearance fees and more. Forbes estimated Woods’s career earnings at $1.7 billion at the time. Prior to the 2019 Masters, Tiger Woods’s career earnings is $116,239,570. Second to Woods’s in that category is Phil Mickelson at $90,306,104.

Woods and Mickelson, for years rivals on the course, have warmed their relationship, at least publicly, in the past year in the wake of the highly touted “Match” in Las Vegas that aired in the fall of 2018. It started with a surprising practice round at Augusta National during the 2018 Masters and has ramped up since. The Match, if it continues as an on-going event, could be a lucrative investment for the pair.
