What is Tiger Woods’s net worth? A look at golf legend’s million-dollar fortune, lavish mansion and swanky cars
Golf legend Tiger Woods is one of the greatest players in the world but that doesn’t mean he had a smooth life. From record-tying 82 PGA wins to finding himself in the middle of a sex scandal, the pro golfer went through a lot of ups and downs.
The golf legend was injured Tuesday morning, February 23, in what the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department termed a "single-vehicle roll-over traffic collision." According to an official statement, the 45-year-old underwent a long surgical procedure on his lower gith leg and ankle after being brought to the hospital. The police department's Twitter account said the vehicle sustained "major damage" in the accident.
As millions of fans wonder if Tiger will recover soon, let’s take a look at where the professional golfer's fortune stands.
Tiger Woods’ net worth
The 45-year-old golf heavyweight won Master Tournaments in 1997, 2001, 2002, 2005 and 2019 and bagged PGA Championship in 1999, 2000, 2006 and 2007. Tiger also lifted the trophies in US Open and The Open Championship in different years and for the unversed, the winning prize in golf goes in millions. Therefore, this gives us an idea of how massive his fortune is.
According to the website Golf Monthly, the golfer had a whopping net worth of $800M in 2018. Since then, he has won his 15th Major at the 2019 Masters and his 82nd PGA Tour title at the 2019 Zozo Championship which added more moolah to his already fat bank account. His net worth in 2020 might be closer to $900M. Here is a fun fact: Tiger has won over $120M on the PGA Tour.
Lucrative endorsement deals
Apart from showing skills in golf tournaments, Tiger also makes a huge amount of money from his sponsorship deals. Brands such as Nike, TaylorMade, Monster, GOLFTV, Bridgestone, Kowa, Hero, Upper Deck, Full Swing Simulators and Centinel Spine are associated with the golf icon.
These brand deals allow him to pocket close to $60M per annum. A lot of brands such as Gillette, Gatorade, Accenture and AT&T dropped him during his high-profile sex scandal in 2009, but Nike remained with him through thick and thin.
Tiger Woods' swanky mansion
According to the website The Spun, Tiger lives in a mansion in Jupiter Island, Florida. His swanky address stretches from the Intracoastal Waterway to the Atlantic Ocean which comes to approximately 9,700 square feet. His residence is divided into two sections — 3,300 sqft living quarters and a 6,400 sqft multipurpose building. The mansion flaunts a 100-foot swimming and lap pool, a 60-foot diving pool, a basketball-tennis court combo along with a spa.
Tiger apparently gives boat access to the property with two docks that welcome guests in from the water. The golfer shelled out a whopping $40 million in 2006 and he then built a house on the land that’s valued at close to $50-54M. He moved into the mansion in 2010.
What does Tiger Woods drive?
Tiger surely loves spending his hard-earned money on magnificent and expensive wheels. Tiger has an extravagant fleet of cars that includes Cadillacs and Buicks. According to The Sun, Tiger has a Cadillac Escalade, Lamborghini Murcielago, Porsche Carrera GT, concept car Buick Bengal, Buick Velte, Buick LaCrosse and a tailor-made golf cart, among few others.
