Woods is world's first billion dollar sportsman

Post by Admin on Fri Oct 02, 2009 12:07 pm

Tiger Woods has become the first sportsman to break through the billion-dollar earnings barrier, Forbes magazine reported on Thursday. The 33-year-old American, who has won 14 majors, reached the latest landmark of his career when he won a $10-million bonus for his FedEx Cup victory last weekend.

According to the magazine's calculations, Woods went into the 2009 season on $895 million which included prize money, endorsements, appearance fees as well as money earned through his golf course design business.

Even before picking up his end of season bonus, Woods had earned $10.5 million on the USPGA Tour this year, winning six titles.

Woods has been the top-earning sportsman since 2002 when he took over from former Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher.

His most lucrative commercial deal is with Nike and brings him over $30 million a year.

Forbes estimated that retired NBA star Michael Jordan will be the next sportsman to earn a billion dollars.

Jordan amassed around $800 million in his playing career and continues to make $45 million a year thanks mainly to a deal with Nike.



$45,000,000 a year ...... I could just about survive on that!

Arguing on the internet is like running in the special olympics. Even if you win, you're still a retard!
