The 100 Million Dollar Man
By mustang6560 on 9/5/12
Tiger Woods may or may not win the FedExCup or the Player of the Year Award in 2012, however, he set a record even a young Rory McIlroy can only hope to achieve — he is the first PGA Tour player in history to reach the $100 million mark in career earnings.
Tiger Woods has become the first $100 million man on the PGA Tour.The next closest player on the career money list is Vijay Singh and he is more than $30 million back of Tiger at $66,791,396. To put that in perspective, Vijay is the entire career of Steve Stricker or Justin Leonard or Kenny Perry behind of Tiger.
The craziest thing about Tiger's new career milestone is Sam Snead, who still holds the record for most PGA Tour victories at 82 (Tiger has 74), only won $620,126 in his entire career.

i think Phil will take over that number 2 spot after these next 2 weeks. he's only $200k behind Vijay.
Matt McGee says:
Who would believe that the best career advice in history would be "Get really good at swinging that stick."
It's mind-boggling that Tiger has probably averaged that amount in endorsements ANNUALLY since he went pro.
or that he had to settle up with the ex for 3 times that
ok who is 2nd vj or phil?
The amazing part was the leading all time money winner ending in 1996 was Greg Norman with just over 9 million in lifetime earnings.
Banker, Vijay is #2....for now.
Who is the best golfer in history??? Money talks, bs walks, and the two never meet in between
