TIGER WOODS NET WORTH

Tiger Woods Net Worth $500 Million

It is certainly ironic that the best rapper in the world is white, and the best golfer in the world is black. Tiger Woods has a net worth of $500 million. The man’s been laughing his way to the bank for a very long time. He has been consistently ranked as one of the highest paid athletes since his rise to the top. 

The man first showed glimpses of his talents when he turned professional in 1996. By 1997, Tiger Woods was already winning majors in record breaking style.  Shortly after, Tiger Woods reached the pinnacle of his career when he marked his territory as the world’s no 1 golfer. He has won 18 World Gold championships to date and is the only golfer to claim The Gold Medal and The Silver Medal at The Open Championship.

Tiger Woods was born to Earl and Kutilda. He confides in his 2 half-brothers, Earl Jr and Kevin. His niece, Cheyenne Woods, is also a professional golfer; she turned pro in 2012. He was married to Swedish model, Elin Nordegren in 2004.

The couple spent most of their time in a mansion located in Isleworth. Total happiness had taken over the Tiger Woods household following the birth of the couple’s first child, Sam Alexis Woods in 2007. The couple would be parents again; Elin gave birth to son, Charlie Axel, in 2009. 

The marriage was going strong before infidelity from Tiger Woods’s part ruined it. It was in 2009 when reports of Tiger Woods’s extramarital affair with Rachel Uchitel dominated headlines. After the news, over a dozen women quickly claimed to have slept with Tiger Woods. It wasn’t surprising as everyone wanted to enjoy their 15 seconds of fame.

The stories were out and Tiger could no longer cower in his lies. With all the strength he could muster, Tiger finally admitted to infidelity and begged for forgiveness. His fall from grace was swift. The damage was done and no longer could Elin stand the sight of him. They finally divorced on August 23, 2010.
