9. Tiger Woods (Net worth $740 Million)
This is the man who made golf cool. It is no longer just a game played wealthy Caucasians and finally, a man of color has made his mark on this game. He has been on the list of the top most highly paid athletes for quite some time. Golfers have tried and failed to maintain a career like that of Tiger Woods with 79 PGA tour wins and 40 European tour wins. He has had endorsement deals with giants like Accenture, American Express, and Nike.
