Golf’s young guns are rak­ing in the cash

Today's Golfer (UK) - - FIRST TEE -

While many 20-some­things are strug­gling to make ends meet, there are a dozen ath­letes aged 25 or younger who banked mon­ster pay­checks to­talling at least $23 mil­lion for the 12 months end­ing June 2018. Lead­ing the way was Jor­dan Spi­eth who, de­spite win­ning only once, pock­eted $41.2 mil­lion to rank him No.23 among the world’s best-paid young ath­letes. Nearly 75 per cent of that came from 10 en­dorse­ment deals, in­clud­ing Un­der Ar­mour, AT&T, Coca-cola, Titleist and Rolex. Justin Thomas “only” made $26m, with most of that com­ing on the course.
