Forbes released its list of the 400 richest Americans last week  and in the last couple of days i’ve been meaning to post an article, but never really found an angle. Then i heard that Tiger Woods was on the list and he cracked the billion dollar mark making him the first sports person to do so. Good times.

Tiger entered the exclusive 10 figure club after winning the FedEx Cup for which he bagged a $10 million bonus( happened last weekend i think).

Here’s what Forbes Magazine had to say about the golf maestro:

“Woods had earned a cumulative $895m going into 2009, by our estimates, from prize money, appearance fees, endorsements, bonuses and his golf course design business.If you add his $10.5m in 2009 prize money, the FedEx bonus and his take so far this year from his more than $100m in annual off-the-course earnings, Woods’ career earnings are now 10 figures.”
