Golf: a sport full of prestige, classy participants (save, perhaps, for John Daly), and the potential for enormous winnings. With the Master’s tournament now bagging winners over $10 million, it’s increasingly clear that this sport comes with great payoffs for great skill. Not to mention the endorsements! Read on for a list of the richest golfers by their 2019 net worth.
19. Luke Donald: $40 million
British golfer Luke Donald, previously number one in the world, has an estimated net worth of $40 million. In 2011, he was named Player of the Year and held the rank of number one on the Official World Golf Ranking list for 40 weeks straight that same year.
Donald’s streak as number one ended when Rory McIlroy claimed the title, but Donald quickly regained the title in March of 2012. He spent a cumulative 56 weeks at the top of the rankings, and in total, spent over 200 weeks in the top 10 of the same list.
