Tiger Woods becomes first man to surpass $100m mark in PGA Tour earnings
Wellington: Tiger Woods has become the first man to surpass the 100 million-dollar mark in earnings on the PGA Tour.
Woods finished third Monday in the Deutsche Bank Championship and made 544,000 dollars, pushing his career total to 100,350,700 dollars.
“The purse increase helps. I won fewer tournaments than Sam Snead has, but obviously he was in a different era. It``s just that we happened to time it up right and happened to play well when the purses really had a nice spike up,” Stuff.co.nz quoted Woods, as saying, after being left two strokes behind winner Rory McIlroy in the second week of the four-tournament FedEx Cup playoff.
Woods has won 74 tournaments, second all-time to Sam Snead, the career leader with 82 PGA Tour victories, and has played 277 times on the PGA Tour, with an average of 362,276.89 dollars for each of his 277 career starts, the report said.
After Woods, next on the list is Phil Mickelson, who finished fourth at the TPC Boston and has 66,805,498 dollars, it added.
