Tiger Woods Named World’s Highest-Paid Athlete
Sure, he’s struggled recently on the links, lost endorsement deals and gone through a divorce, but not even all that can stop Tiger Woods from raking in the cash.
Woods has come out on top of Forbes’ list of the highest-paid athletes in the world.
A winner of 14 majors, Woods collected a healthy $75 million for the year ending May 1. Forbes came up with the list by adding salary, bonuses, prize money, appearance fees and endorsement and licensing agreements.
Kobe Bryant came in second on the list, with $53 million, while LeBron James and his $48 million pulled up in third.
NBA guard Michael Redd rounded out the top 50, courtesy of the $18.8 million he made.
