Woods joins Jordan and James as members of the Billionaire Club – Forbes

According to business magazine Forbes, Tiger Woods has joined Michael Jordan and LeBron James in a limited club of elite athletes with a net worth of at least $1 billion (about Ksh. 117.2 billion).

According to Forbes, the 15-time major winner has generated over $1.7 billion (approx. Ksh. 199.2 billion) in prize money, endorsements, and other endeavors since returning to competition at the Masters in April 14 months after nearly losing his right leg in a vehicle accident.

With 82 wins on the PGA Tour, Woods is tied with Sam Snead for the most, but according to Forbes, golf triumphs account for less than 10% of his career earnings, with the majority of his net worth credited to endorsements with brands like Nike and Rolex.

Despite not participating in the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Invitational Series, the 46-year-old has become a billionaire.

LIV Golf CEO Greg Norman told the Washington Post earlier this month that Woods had rejected down a “mind-blowingly large” offer in the high nine figures.

Jordan, a six-time NBA champion, was the first athlete to achieve the $1 billion mark, and he was joined by four-time NBA champion LeBron James, whose worth was assessed at $1 billion by Forbes magazine only last week.
