Decorated golfer Tiger Woods is still one of the highest-paid athletes in the world despite a severely limited playing schedule. 

Tiger Woods reportedly ranks second when it comes to the highest paid athletes of all time, and his net worth now stands at $1.1 billion. 

According to the latest figures released by Sportico, Woods, 48, finds himself second on the all-time list to NBA legend Michael Jordan. 

Three golfers make the top five on the list, with four in the top 10. 

Of Woods’ career net worth, approximately $75 million has come from endorsements.

Woods confirmed on 8 January 2024 that he had left sports giant Nike following a successful 27-year partnership. 

Woods crashed his luxury Genesis SUV in February 2021 and remarkably it took him a matter of months to return to the course. 

His first professional tournament back in action was a major at the 86th Masters.

The 15-time major champion drew enormous crowds for his practice round and he made the cut. 

Shortly after that it was revealed by Forbes that Woods was closing in on becoming a billionaire, with an estimated net worth of $800m. 

Woods received a further setback in April 2023 when he was forced to withdraw from The Masters ahead of the final round – and he soon confirmed he was having ankle surgery as a result of his car crash in 2021.
