Tiger Woods has been woefully underpaid on his on-course performance



I am fascinated by money. Who has it, who controls it, and who's earning it. So when news of Mike Trout's record-breaking $ 430 million (!!) contract broke earlier this week, it reminded me of just how little Tiger Woods has made his PGA Tour career.

Yes, how little .

The PGA Tour's career earning list appears bloated until you start comparing it to other sports. Tiger Woods ̵

1; $ 115.9 million
  • Phil Mickelson – $ 90.2 million
  • Vijay Singh – $ 71.2 million
  • Jim Furyk – $ 70.3 million
  • Dustin Johnson – $ 59 million
  • Justin Rose – $ 51.3 million
  • Adam Scott – $ 50.7 million
  • Ernie Els – $ 49.2 million
  • Sergio Garcia – $ 48.7 million
  • Matt Kuchar – $ 46.9 million
  • The big caveat here, of course, is that guys like Els, Woods and Mickelson make gobs of money off course and often do the tune of $ 40-50 million a year. That's not the case with the stars of other sports because of the target markets of each sport and the high average disposable income that exists among golf fans.

    The career baseball earnings list is incredible, though. Justin Rose, the sixth highest on-course earner on the PGA Tour, has earned just over $ 50 million, the sixth highest in MLB history, Carlos Beltran, has earned over $ 220 million.

    Basketball is more of the same . LeBron James dwarfs everyone at $ 270 million, and just behind him are Dirk Nowitzki ($ 252 million), Dwight Howard ($ 234 million), Chris Paul ($ 222 million) and Pau Gasol ($ 215 million).

    In football, Eli Manning, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and Philip Rivers have all topped the $ 200 million mark, and Manning has more than doubled his on-course earnings. Eli Manning!

    Incredibly, just like Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic have earned more than playing tennis than Tiger and Mickelson have earned on the course.

    So you can see why $ 9 million matches over Thanksgiving are now a thing and how underpaid these superstars have been over the course of their outrageous careers.

    Timing obviously matters a lot here. Woods helped us in – and is the reason for! – all the money in golf these days. He doesn't want to be all over the on-course benefits, but guys like D.J., Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth ($ 38 million) will. Also, other sports have bigger audiences and larger followings. They are able to generate more revenue, which matters, though I would argue nobody in those accounts for the percentage of their league's revenue that Tiger does in golf.

    Here are a few other notes I found when doing this research, mostly on the big three American sports of MLB, the NBA and the NFL (obviously soccer players were crush woods in this category, too, but I didn't feel like dabbling in exchange rates for an hour).

    The following athletes have more than doubled Tiger's on-course earnings: Eli Manning, Dwight Howard, Dirk Nowitzki, LeBron James, Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Albert Pujols, CC Sabathia and Miguel Cabrera.

    The following athletes have (hilariously?) Made more money than Tiger over the course of their careers: Alex Smith, Joe Flacco, Andrew Bogut, Hunter Pence, Jayson Werth and Bartolo Colon.

    • Austin Rivers has made more in his on-career career than Rory McIlroy. Rivers is three years younger.
