Whoa! Who knew golf could make you a billionaire. When I was a kind playing golf with my dad (who used to make me carry his golf bag, to make me a man, as he put it), even the top golfers were never worth more than low double digits millions. But Tiger Woods is just one of those athletes (are golfers really athletes?) who changed everything. Honestly, it isn’t the golf winnings per se that made him a billionaire, it had to be the endorsements.
Oh, you didn’t know Tiger was a billionaire? Rachel Uchitel did, I’m thinking (but she’s not Tiger’s wife, so maybe that’s why she only got $10M?). And his wife did, judging by the fact that she’s expecting $750M in their pending divorce settlement. And full custody. And she has so far refused to sign a confidentiality clause, so she could potentially write a book and profit off of that.
All I can say is Tiger, I hope Uchitel and the neighbor’s daughter were worth losing a beautiful wife, kids, $750M and a lot of endorsements. Do you know how many Top Flight golf balls you could buy with that much money? I don’t either but I know it’s a lot. Well at least you didn’t cheat with her twin sister.
