Tiger Woods has made $8,637 per hole played this year
Tiger Woods and Adam Scott have played the exact same number of holes this season but Woods has the big advantage in dollars made per hole.
We know professional golfers make a lot of money -- heck, we're reminded of that every time CBS or NBC flashes that $10 million FedEx Cup graphic -- but just how much do they make per tournament? Or how about per round or even per hole?
Luckily, we have answers.
1. Tiger Woods -- $588K
2. Adam Scott -- $333K
3. Steve Stricker -- $311K
4. Henrik Stenson -- $307K
5. Phil Mickelson -- $277K
6. Matt Kuchar -- $258K
7. Justin Rose -- $254K
8. Brandt Snedeker -- $235K
9. Jason Day -- $165K
10. Jordan Spieth -- $145K
Pretty interesting list.
Jason Dufner is the only major winner nowhere to be found (he's No. 11 -- $400 per round behind Spieth) and the only non-winner on the list is Jason Day.
Per round and per hole totals were more difficult to tabulate because of the match play tournament back in February -- I'm not going to go through and count up holes played for each golfer but I did it for your top three guys so you can see what they're making per round and per hole.
1. Tiger Woods -- $155K
2. Adam Scott -- $88K
3. Steve Stricker -- $78K
To put this in perspective, Woods is making more per round than all but eight other golfers are making per tournament.
1. Tiger Woods -- $8,637
2. Adam Scott -- $4,894
3. Steve Stricker -- $4,331
Must be nice for a guy like Stricker to only have to perform 44 days out of the year and know he's making nearly five thousand dollars every hole.
At the very bottom of the list were two guys who probably wish I hadn't made this list:
