The list of top 18 money winners in golf history has plenty of surprises

By

There’s a lot of money to be made in professional golf. Eight golfers have won more than $50 million in their PGA Tour careers and all 18 on this list have surpassed the $40 million mark in career earnings.

Matt Kuchar is the latest to join the $50 million club with his T-52 finish in the 2019 BMW Championship in August.

With that in mind, let’s look at the top money earners of all-time, as measured by on-course winnings.

This list is updated through the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open on the 2019-20 PGA Tour schedule.

Jordan Spieth has not won a PGA Tour event since the 2017 British Open, so might not be a total surprise that he sits in the No. 18 spot on our list. For one, he has 11 wins on the PGA Tour and 14 professional wins overall, three majors, and was once ranked as No. 1 player in the world — all of this success came before he turned 26. Spieth’s career has hit a crossroad. How much more he moves up this list will be determined by how quickly and substantially he can turn his game around.
