Tiger Woods is one of the most successful and highest-earning golfers of all time.

Bursting onto the golf scene as a 20-year-old, Woods won his first Masters at age 21 and spent more than 10 years as the top-ranked golfer. His dominance on the golf course has at times been overshadowed by struggles in his personal life.

Tiger’s marriage fell apart in 2009 after a very public cheating scandal, and injuries caused his play to slip in the years that followed. But despite the dropoff, Tiger Woods still ranks first among active golfers in career PGA wins and majors wins.
