Jordan Spieth ended Tiger Woods’ 13-year reign as the top-earning golfer in the world in 2015. Spieth made $53 million between winnings and endorsements, less than $1 million ahead of Phil Mickelson who cashed in to the tune of $52.3 million.
Woods fell to third at $48.5 million, nearly all of that endorsement money as he earned less than $1 million in prize money during an oft-injured season. It is estimated Woods has made around $1.4 billion in his 20 years on tour.
Rory McIlroy finished fourth with $46.9 million, followed by 86-year-old Arnold Palmer, whose video games and golf courses earned him $40 million.
