Recently, there was an article posted entitled “Top 10 Highest Paid Sportsmen in the World“. I decided to discover the 10 highest paid female athletes in the world. Most of the highest paid male athletes play team sports. This is not the case for the highest paid female athletes. Interestingly, all 10 of the highest paid female athletes in the world are not involved in team sports. Let the countdown begin…
Athlete #10 – Paula Creamer
Paula Creamer is the Tiger Woods of ladies’ golf. She is quite possibly the most recognizable golfer of the LPGA. Creamer is nicknamed the Pink Panther because she usually wears pink during tournaments. Although Creamer has not won a tournament since 2010, her endorsement deals with Taylor-Made, Ricoh, Bridgestone, and others help her make the list as the 10th highest paid female athlete in the world.
Total earnings: $5.5 million
Prize money: $1 million
Endorsements: $4.5 million
