PGA Championship Winners’ Earnings

For the first time in 13 years, Tiger Woods is not the highest-earning golfer in the world, reported Golf Digest. Although Woods isn’t going away any time soon, he now exists in the shadow of a new crop of young, talented and highly-marketable fresh faces who have taken the PGA Tour by storm.

Although the PGA Championship offers millions in payouts to the top-performing golfers, there’s far more money on the line. The best-compensated players — like past winners Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and Jason Dufner — earn many times more off the course in the form of commercial endorsements, corporate partnerships and celebrity interviews.

PGA Championship winners from 2010 to the present have landed some of the most lucrative deals in golf. Here is a look at their net worths, winnings and endorsements.

In 2015, Heavy.com listed Adidas, Concur, Lexus, NetJets and TaylorMade as his sponsors.

Rory McIlroy Net Worth: $80 Million

One of the most marketable and successful golfers in the game, Rory McIlroy, won both the 2014 and 2012 PGA Championship tournaments. Of the $42.6 million Forbes reported he earned in the previous 12 months, $35 million came from endorsement deals.
