#6 – Tiger Woods
Eldrick “Tiger” Woods (born 30th December, 1975) is an American professional golfer who is among the most successful golfers of all time and has been one of the highest-paid athletes in the world for several years.
Despite having been world number one for the most consecutive weeks and for the greatest total number of weeks of any golfer in history, Woods has been stuck on 14 majors since the 2008 US Open. This means he is still four short of Jack Nicklaus’ record of 18. His endorsement earnings are a staggering $55 million even though Electronic Arts announced in 2013 that it would end its relationship with Woods and his eponymous video game after 16 versions.
Total Earnings: $61.2 Million
