I’m A Billionaire!!!

It’s actually surprising that 46-year-old Woods hadn’t hit billionaire status earlier in his career — back in April, the outlet estimated he’d earned $1.7 billion over the course of his pro career before taxes and agent fees … with less than 10% of that coming from prize money.
Woods made a fortune as the face of brands such as Gatorade and Nike… and TGR Ventures has invested heavily in a number golf-related businesses in recent years.
The 15-time major winner has undoubtedly brought a ton of interest to the sport … which has resulted in more money in his pockets, thanks to lucrative TV deals increasing prize money on the PGA Tour.
Despite several personal controversies throughout his career — including his single-car accident on Thanksgiving in 2009, going public about his sex addiction and being arrested on suspicion of DUI in 2017 — Woods has remained one of the top-earning athletes each year.
Woods’ success comes on the heels a reported “high nine-digits” offer to participate in the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Tour… which he declined.
Woods is now one of three billionaire athletes in America — joining James and Michael Jordan — and that’s pretty good company.
