But how much is a lot? Millions and millions, tens of millions, and in a few years over one-hundred million dollars per year. Woods has many income streams that bump up his annual income well past just what he earns in golf tournaments. So we'll take a look at how much money Tiger makes each year in a couple of different ways. Tiger Woods' Annual PGA Tour Earnings The question of how much Woods earns each year playing on the PGA Tour is easy to answer because the tour tracks that. Just glance at the PGA Tour's annual money list to find Woods, going back to his rookie season of 1996. Here are Woods' earnings on the PGA Tour each year of his career: 1996: $790,594 1997: $2,066,833 1998: $1,841,117 1999: $6,616,585 2000: $9,188,321 2001: $5,687,777 2002: $6,912,625 2003: $6,673,413 2004: $5,365,472 2005: $10,628,024 2006: $9,941,563 2007: $10,867,052 2008: $5,775,000 2009: $10,508,163 2010: $1,294,765 2011: $660,238 2012: $6,133,158 2013: $8,553,439 2014: $108,275 2015: $448,598 2016: 0 Tiger Woods on the World Money List Woods occasionally plays golf outside the USPGA Tour. From 2003-2011, a "world money list" was compiled on PGATour.com, which combined golfers earnings across all the world tours. For an idea of how Tiger's totals rose when including non-PGA Tour money, here are his "world money list" totals in those years: 2003: $6,700,288 2004: $5,819,407 2005: $11,515,939 2006: $11,141,827 2007: $11,002,706 2008: $6,196,717 2009: $10,948,054 2010: $2,154,516 2011: $1,940,238 The "world money list" totals do not include any appearance fees Woods might have received for non-USPGA Tour tournaments, but any such fees would boost Woods' on-course earnings further. Golf Digest 50: Tiger Woods' Total Annual Earnings The other component of Tiger's income is his off-course earnings: income from endorsements, from his course design business, licensing fees, corporate outings and appearances, investment income and so on. Luckily for us, the magazine Golf Digest has annually, beginning in 2003, compiled what it calls the "Golf Digest 50." The GD50 combines a golfer's on-course income with his or her estimated off-course income (estimated after much research and many interviews conducted by Golf Digest). Here are the annual income figures determined by Golf Digest for Woods each year of the GD50: 2003: $83,700,288 2004: $89,370,407 2005: $86,992,739 2006: $98,941,827 2007: $122,702,706 2008: $117,337,626 2009: $121,915,196 2010: $74,294,116 2011: $64,067,059 2012: $86,124,386 2013: $83,091,508 2014: $55,110,775 2015: $48,551,098 2016: $34,607,000 Add all that up and it totals more than a billion dollars in career income for Tiger Woods. These Numbers Represent Gross Income Keep in mind that all the annual income figures cited above are estimates of gross income. That means income before taxes, expenses, and other obligations. Like everyone else, Woods is responsible for federal, state, and local taxes. Woods also has to pay accountants and attorneys, of course, his agent gets a cut of almost everything Woods earns. Also, his caddie receives a cut of his golf earnings.
