Tiger continues to crush endorsement deals with $71 million in off-course income. Winning five times in 2013 no doubt reinvigorated his brand. It is great seeing him win, and I’m sure his accountant is very happy as well.
Phil Mickelson is number two on the list with $52 million. He has occupied the second spot for several years due to lucrative deals with Callaway, KPMG, and Barclays. Mickelson’s off-course income totals $45 million.
Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, and Greg Norman occupy spots in the top 10 as golf course architects and savy businessmen. When Woods and Mickelson retire, they can look forward to taking over as legends of the game, and earning a boatload of cash.
Paula Creamer is the only woman on the list at #48 with $5.3 million.
