Tiger Woods won his fifth Masters title on April 14, marking his 15th major championship victory overall and his first major victory in over a decade.
Woods’ career, though full of victories, has been hampered by a public divorce, an arrest and back injuries in recent years, but the golfer seems poised to make a strong return with his Masters victory. Within the last two years he’s positioned himself in three top-five finishes and five top-12 finishes. He was listed at No. 6 on the Official World Golf Ranking as of April 15. Here’s an overview of Tiger Woods’ net worth.
Tiger Woods Net Worth: $800M
Tiger Woods is worth an estimated $800 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. The golfer has made more than $1 billion dollars since turning pro in 1996 at the age of 20. Woods’ on-course winnings alone have earned him over $110 million, and the PGA Tour website ranks him as a career money leader. His other earnings come from endorsements from companies such as Nike, which even stuck with Woods after a DUI arrest in 2017. He’s earned $42 million in various endorsement deals, according to Forbes.

How Tiger Spends His Millions
Golf might require poise and patience, but Woods’ spending habits offer a glimpse into how he cuts loose. His major purchases include a $20 million yacht called “Privacy” equipped with a bar, Jacuzzi and gym, a mansion with a golf course as a backyard in Jupiter Island, Fla., and a private jet worth over $50 million. Woods’ earnings landed him a spot on Forbes’ list of highest-paid athletes of 2016 at number 12. Tiger’s endorsement with Nike is roughly $22.5 million, according to Apex Marketing, so Woods can probably expect a profitable 2019.
Woods’ earnings don’t go completely to him. He has a charity foundation, the TGR Foundation, which received $12 million from Woods in 2012, the PGA reported.
