The Golf Digest 50

The top earners in golf, on and off the course

Tiger Woods
Given the scandal he was embroiled in and the mediocre season that followed, it shouldn't be a surprise that Tiger Woods' overall earnings of $74.2 million were his lowest in a decade. Compared to 2009, in fact, when he made $121,915,196, Woods was forced to take a $48 million pay cut last year. So where did that leave the 14-time major winner on Golf Digest's all-encompassing money list? Actually, still right at the top. While Woods is just one of a host of familiar names back on this year's Golf Digest 50, you'll also see plenty of new faces as well.

SOURCES: Figures for the list were compiled through Golf Digest interviews with agents, players, executives of companies involved with endorsements, industry analysts and through the official money lists of the professional tours.
