How Tiger Woods splurges his moolah and relishes life off the Golf course

Posted by Admin 30 Oct 2018

Golf legend Tiger Woods rose like a phoenix from the ashes and showed the world that he's back with a bang! With a scintillating victory at the Tour Championship, he stated loud and clear that he still has the grit of a true champion.



Tiger money



On the course, Woods is still one of the highest-paid athletes of all time. Let’s take a stock on how he spends his moolah and lives his life off the golf course.




The highest paid Golfer?

Forbes estimates that Woods made $43.3 million in 2017, and Golfworld calculates that he earns an average of $1,282 per shot. And the star appears to put his money to use. Business Insider reports that Woods owns a $55 million 10-acre property, a $54 million private jet and a $25 million yacht. Now this says it all! Tiger Woods has made more than $1.4 billion since turning pro in 1996.



More than $115 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 million for his second-place finish in the FedEx Cup — one of his biggest paydays ever in golf.




Federer or Tiger?

Roger Federer recently passed Woods as the highest-paid athlete of all time from a non-team sport. 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 2016, he earned more than $45 million in endorsement deals and course-design fees.



Despite barely playing in 2017, Woods was still the 16th-highest-paid athlete in the world, according to Forbes, and had an estimated net worth of $740 million in 2016.





Golf isn't his only love...

Golf isn't his only passion — Woods is really into spearfishing. He learned how to free dive so he could spearfish without an air tank. He loves spearfishing so much that he once called in sick to a tune-up tournament before the Open Championship just so he could spend time catching fish.



Woods is a die-hard Oakland Raiders fan. He tries to find time to support the silver and black whenever he can.





What Rory says about Woods....

He struggles to sleep," Rory McIlroy said of Woods, "which I think is an effect of overtraining, so I tell him to calm down sometimes. He'd be texting me at 4 o'clock in the morning: 'Up lifting. What are you doing?'"




He even has his own restaurant, called The Woods Jupiter. "After years of meals on the road, he decided to bring his vision of an elevated sports bar to life at home in Jupiter," the website says. He likes to travel in style and owns a Gulfstream G550 private jet, worth about $54 million.
