Top 10 Richest Athlete Around the World

- Tiger Woods – Golf
Total Earnings – $50.6 million
Last 2009 saw the life and career of the World’s greatest golfer fall apart. He was then called a serial cheater. He lost deals with Nike, Gatorade, Gillette and Accenture. Gillette and Accenture alone earned him about $25 million a year. Following this revelation that shook the sporting world, though Woods’ game fell apart he earned $54 million, which was roughly half of what he earned before the scandal.
His comeback in the game was a pretty muted one. However, that has not stopped this 14-time Major winner from picking new endorsement deals with MusclePharm and Hero Motorcycles. His golf course design business has picked up since 2014 and has been making waves in Mexico, China and Dubai.
