The list of highest paid athletes is out again, and once again Tiger Woods roars to the top!
OK…that’s was corny. 🙂
However, it’s true! Tiger Woods tops out the list of highest paid athletes taking back the number one spot from Floyd Mayweather, Jr. who was number one in 2012. According to Forbes, “Woods pulled in $78.1 million over the last year from prize money, endorsements, appearance fees and golf course design work.”
Here’s how the rest of the top 10 list looks:
Tennis phenom Roger Federer: $78 million
Kobe Bryant: $61.9 million
LeBron James $59.8 million
Drew Brees $51 million
Aaron Rogers $49 million
Phil Mickelson $48.7 million
David Beckham $47.2 million
Tennis player Cristiano Ronaldo $44 million
Soccer player Lionel Messi $41.3 million
Some other things to note:
- Maria Sharapova (No. 22) is the highest-ranked woman making over $23 million in endorsements
- Serena Williams (No. 68) and Li Na (No. 85) are the other women on the list
That’s no chump change to throw, hit, or kick a ball.
Wow!…I’m in the wrong business!
Who do you think is the most overpaid player?
