Tiger Woods Hits $1 Billion Earned

Forbes is reporting that Tiger Woods is officially the first athlete to ever break the $1 billion mark. The milestone came after Forbes raked in $10 million for winning the FedEx Cup last weekend. Woods has been the highest paid athlete for sometime–bringing in nearly $128 million in 2007, according to Sports Illustrated, but reaching a billion dollars in the heart of his career before high-earning icons like Michael Jordan is a huge accomplishment. Woods’ income comes from a variety of outlets: in addition to prize money, he gets paid big dollars for bonuses, appearance fees and designing golf courses.
