Tiger is still on top!

Despite having one of the rockiest years for any professional athlete, golf pro Tiger Woods has still managed to secure his title as the highest paid athlete on SI.com’s “Fortunate 50” list of the highest-earning American athletes. Just last year Woods was able to pull in a total of $90 million from sports winnings and estimated endorsement earnings for 2010.

However this year Tiger is $22 million down in endorsement money after his recent sex scandal but was able to make up for a decent amount of it in golf winnings last year…….leaving him only $10 million down overall. (We bet Ellen is not liking this too much!) Following Tiger is his golf rival Phil Mickelson on SI’s list, boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. came at third with $60 million. And the list goes on…for more info check out SI.com

We see you still doing your thing though Tiger!
