What is Tiger Woods’ net worth?

As of 2024, Forbes has indicated Tiger Woods’ net worth hovers around the airspace of $1.1 billion.

All up, across both prize money and sponsorship deals, Woods has raked in around $1.8 billion.

Earnings On The Green

While $120,954,766 in career earnings isn’t exactly a figure to dismiss — especially considering it’s the most in PGA Tour golf’s all-time career earnings — as you will have deduced from the sheer chasm between that amount and his net worth, the majority of Tiger Woods’ wealth has been accumulated off the green (more on this later).

Woods’ closest competition in PGA Tour earnings is none other than career rival Phil Mickelson at $96,572,310, who has since pocked more than double that after signing with the Saudi-backed rebel breakaway league LIV Golf.

Now keep in mind: this only accounts for official payouts. When you account for bonuses such as the Player Impact Program, $120,954,766 becomes $157,400,557.

Here’s what Tiger Woods cashed in on the green in each of his years with the PGA (according to Sportrac).

Tiger Woods Splits With Nike After 27 Years, 15 Major Wins, & $750 Million

Tiger Woods’ biggest sponsor has been, without a shadow of a doubt, Nike.

While the two have since divorced in a rather amicable fashion, across their 27-year marriage, the pro golfer has pocketed $500 million from the iconic swoosh (before taxes and agents’ fees).

Woods signed with Nike the moment he turned pro circa August 1996, kicking their partnership off with a multi-year contract reportedly valued at $40 million per year. At the time, this was history’s richest athlete endorsement deal; and proved a worthwhile investment given Nike’s golf division enjoyed tenfold growth within the first two years alone (adding a casual $300 million to revenue).

During the very peak of the Tiger/Nike love affair, the former was netting an estimated $30 million-plus annually; while the latter would exceed $800 million in annual sales before ceasing production on all golf-related equipment circa 2016.

In fact, when Nike co-founder Phil Knight was asked if there was any better way for the company to spend its money than throw $20 million at Tiger Woods every year during a stockholder meeting, he simply replied: “No.”

This represents over 25% of his impressive $1.8 billion pre-tax career earnings.

Other notable deals that have been served/are currently being served on the big dog’s plate include the following:

  • Gatorade — $120 million ($40 million annually from 2007 to 2009)
  • General Motors — $56 million ($7 million annually from 2000 to 2008)
  • Buick — $45 million ($5 million annually from 1999 to 2008)
  • Accenture — $42 million ($7 million annually from 2003 to 2009)
  • Rolex — $35+ million (from 1997 to 2002; 2011 to 2016)
  • Golf Digest — $26 million ($2 million annually from 1997 to 2010)
  • Titleist — $20 million (from 1996 to 2000)
  • Bridgestone Golf — $15 million ($1-2 million annually)
  • Tag Heuer — $15 million ($2 million annually from 2002 to 2009)
  • Hero MotoCorp — $10-20 million (from 2014 to 2022)
  • Gillette — $10 million ($5 million annually from 2007 to 2009)
  • MusclePharm — $9.5 million (from 2014 to 2018)
  • AT&T — $7 million (2009)
  • TaylorMade — Unconfirmed
