Tiger Woods Made $48 Million Less in 2010
You know what cheating on your wife (and the general public) will get ya? Well, a $48 million drop in pay for one.
That's what Tiger Woods lost last year, making "only" $74.2 million buckaroos in 2010 compared to, *ahem*, $121.9 million in '09 (Ed. Note: Holy hell).
Yep, the news breaking in last Thanksgiving cost Tiger a lot in endorsements (h/t Golf Digest), but he still beat out Phil Mickelson for most earnings in golf. Lefty made $40.2 million last season, which is pretty impressive considering who he is and what he brings to the table (white, male, pretty successful all his life).
Michelle Wie, who was supposed to be the Tiger of the LPGA, made the last name on the list at number 50, earning $4.8 million, which isn't so bad for a college kiddo.
So, yeah, Tiger is still rich. Hope it didn't hurt when you fell out of your chair.
