For the first time in 13 years, Tiger Woods is no longer golf’s top earner. In fact, he’s No. 3.
The 13-time major champion was unseated by Jordan Spieth, who claimed many of the biggest golf tournaments last year, according to estimates by Golf Digest.
Spieth reportedly earned $53 million both on the course with help from his tournament victories at the Masters, the U.S. Open and the Tour Championship, as well as with endorsements.
Phil Mickelson placed No. 2 with $52.3 million.
As Golf Digest estimates, Woods collected a total of $48.5 million in 2015, although he won less than $1 million last year. This was also the first time since 2001 that Woods made less than a total of $50 million, according to ESPN.
