It was found that Phil Mickelson earned the most money among active golfers last year, beating Tiger Woods, the ‘golf emperor’.
On the 29th of last month (local time), the US Golf Digest published a list of the top 50 highest-earning golfers in 2022. The survey includes prize money earned from tours such as the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour, and other income is estimated.
The highest earning player was Phil Mickelson. He earned 102.94 million dollars (approximately 133.9 billion won) and ranked first in this category. In particular, he is known to have earned $101 million outside of the game, including his LIV contract. However, since he is a LIV golf member, he must return a large amount of up to $400 million to return to the PGA.
In second place was Dustin Johnson with $99.2 million. Third place was occupied by Woods, the ‘golf emperor’. Woods barely played in the tournament, but earned a total of $97.04 million thanks to his non-game income.
In fourth place was Rory McIlroy ($88.3 million), who drew attention as a candidate to succeed Woods. 5th Cameron Smith ($78.54 million), 6th Brooks Koepka (74.6 million dollars), 7th Bryson DeChambo (68.02 million dollars), 8th Sergio Garcia (57.13 million dollars), 9th Jordan Spieth (4432) 10,000 dollars) △ Scotty Scheffler (41.25 million dollars) in 10th place. 안전놀이터
