Heard the news on Golf Channel, thought of sharing. I wonder how long has he been on tour?


Forbes.com has reported that, by their estimate, Tiger Woods has surpassed the $1 billion mark in career earnings.

The Web site takes into account prize money, appearance fees, endorsements, bonuses and his golf course design business. They said, “If you add his $10.5 million in 2009 prize money, the FedEx bonus and his take so far this year from his more than $100 million in annual off-the-course earnings, Woods' career earnings are now 10 figures.”

Forbes says Woods is the first athlete to cross the billion-dollar mark in career earnings and that his only rivals are Michael Jordan, who may cross the barrier in “four or five years” and Formula One driver Michael Schumacher, whom they estimate has earned nearly $700 million since 1991.

wow...that is impressive.

But what i felt more impressive is the fact that Mr.Woods himself has played a pivotal in expanding the golf market...many golf business be it clubs makers, golf gurus etc etc...all benefited in whatever ways to Mr.woods.

Just like Mike Jordan....he is someone I say built the NBA as it is today...a little far fetched..but I don too far off

It was only a matter of time... oh well.

Anyway, did you know that he is a notoriously bad tipper?

About time.

Dunno, I never give him the chance to tip me leh.

I just know he is oblivious to the fans when he plays or practices so much as I worship him, Phil is a better public figure on the links any day.

Personally, I prefer Paddy. Much more pleasant a golfer...
