Kurt Badenhausen explains the shift on the annual list due to the pay-per-view hauls of Mayweather and Pacquiao and notes this about Tiger at just, just $59.4 million last year:
Woods’ total earnings dropped $16 million from last year to $59.4 million and have been sliced in half since their peak in 2009. Despite his collapse in this year’s U.S. Open, Woods is playing much better on the course and his prize money doubled from the prior 12 months. But the $2 million bump in prize money does not offset the loss of sponsors like Tag Heuer and Gillette.
Woods’ golf course design business has also struggled. Development of his Dubai course was shut down last year and the developer of his North Carolina course, Cliffs Club & Hospitality, filed for bankruptcy in 2012.
The top ten, so you don't have to endure a slow slideshow.
