Tiger Woods is on top of Golf Digest’s money list for yet another year.
He made $12,091,508 from golfing and $71,000,000 off-the-course for a total of $83,091,508 in 2013.
“On-course income for 2013 includes all money earned on the PGA Tour and the five international tours (Japan PGA, PGA European, Australasian, Southern Africa, Asian) and the Champions Tour, LPGA Tour, Ladies European Tour and the Japan LPGA through Dec. 1. It includes unofficial money won in non-tour events,” Golf Digest explained.
“Off-course Income includes estimates of all money earned from endorsements, bonuses, appearance fees, corporate outings, speaking engagements, licensing fees (video games, trading cards, etc.), course architecture, books, instructional videos and businesses that capitalize on a person’s status as a player, such as product lines including clothing, wine and turfgrass.
“Investment income is not included.”
Following Woods is Phil Mickelson ($52 million), Arnold Palmer ($40 million), Jack Nicklaus ($26 million) and Henrik Stenson, who made $19 million on the course but only $2.8 million in endorsements.
Rory McIlroy is sixth with $20.6 million.
