Please note: net worth figures are indicative of assets versus liabilities. All net worth figures are according to CelebrityNetWorth.com unless otherwise noted.
Net Worth: $75 Million
The Big Fijian, Vijay Singh leads us off as the 10th richest golfer of all time with a net worth of $75 million. Since turning pro in 1982, he has amassed 34 PGA Tour wins including three major championships (2000 Masters, 1998 & 2004 PGA Championships.) Singh also worked his way up all the way to world number one for eight months between 2004 and 2005, winning nine times in during the 2004 season. He also topped the PGA Tour’s money list in 2003, 2004, and 2008. During his PGA Tour career, Vijay has earned just north of $70 million and that doesn’t even include the work he’s doing on the PGA Tour Champions since turning 50 years-old back in 2013. He was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2006. Singh has commercial contracts with Adobe, Hopkins Golf and golf apparel brand Carnoustie Sportswear.
