No Major Loss For Tiger


-- this post authored by Martin Armstrong

At the US Masters in 1997, the world of golf changed forever.

Tiger Woods took Augusta by storm to lift the first of his (to date) 14 major trophies. Having turned pro only seven months previously, Woods chalked up a Masters record -18, with the nearest challenger 12 shots asunder. His prize money of $486,000 went in the kitty that, according to Forbes, grew to $26 million by the end of year.

In 2002, Tiger reached the top of the sport rich-list and remained there for ten years consecutively. Although his major winning streak came to an end in 2009 - the same year the infidelity scandal broke - he remained the worlds’ highest earning sports person until 2012, when he slipped to third. Plagued by injuries and a general lack of form, the Woods has failed to make an impact where it matters for over eight years now, but as the infographic below shows, this hasn't had a major effect on his earnings.

While his income has naturally taken a dip since the glory days, the former world number one has still managed to keep the money flowing in. Despite having not won a tour event since 2013, Woods earned a reported $45 million last year. As a professional sports person though, this is unlikely to provide him with much solace. While he was out of this year’s Masters through injury, it would be quite a story if he could turn it all around and bag that fifteenth major before he finally calls it a day.

This chart shows the earnings and major wins of Tiger Woods from 1997 to 2016.
