Despite lost endorsement deals, some recent struggles on the links and a bitter divorce, Tiger Woods is still the king of cash. Woods is number one on Forbes’ list of the highest-paid athletes in the world.
A winner of 14 majors, Woods collected $75 million for the year ending May 1. Forbes came up with the list by adding salary, bonuses, prize money, appearance fees and endorsement and licensing agreements.
Kobe Bryant came in second on the list, with $53 million, while LeBron James placed third with $48 million. NBA guard Michael Redd rounded out the top 50, thanks to the $18.8 million he made.
