For any of you whom have played golf, you probably know just how expensive the sport actually is. In addition to buying clubs that cost thousands, in some cases, to play a truly good course will set you back a couple hundred bucks. But for those who have mastered the art of swinging a golf club and keeping their ball straight, they don’t usually have to pay for a thing. That’s because, believe it or not, an activity that 99 percent of people do for relaxation, a few lucky group actually get paid to do as a job. We all know about Tiger Woods and the amount of money he has made over the course of his career, but would you ever guess that it’s over $1 billion? Probably not. And while the richest golfers of 2014 may not ever make that much money in their lifetime, they’re still doing very well for themselves—as I’m about to show you. Remember, this is just from their 2014 tournament earnings, not even taking into account any sponsorships.
