This year, at least five personal income milestones await the stars of the PGA, LPGA and European Tour – the world’s three largest professional arenas.
On the board bonus positions from 1950 – year of establishment LPGA TourAmerican golfer Cristie Kerr approached Karrie Webb – his Australian colleague in second place and Swedish player Annika Sorenstam at the top.
Last month, Kerr made professionals admire in the spirit of striving. The 43-year-old player lost three ribs in the electric car accident. The injury has not healed, but Kerr still finished T23 in the major US Women’s Open and T10 in the grand final of the CME Group Tour Championship.
At these two events, Kerr received $ 92,688. As a result, she exceeded the $ 20 million mark in the total prize money in the American arena. Kerr is currently $ 262,000 less than Webb. Sorenstam held the top at $ 22,573,192.
This year, Kerr has 34 awards to catch up with Webb who has not put his stick at the age of 46 with less competition. Kerr owns 20 LPGA Tour titles while Webb has 41. In 24 professional years, Kerr 10 times over a million dollars in a season, with a peak of 1.6 million in 2010.
About the bonus PGA Tour, Johnson may pass the $ 75 million mark. In addition, Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas are likely to reach more than 40 million USD. To get to that milestone, Fowler needed an extra million dollars and Thomas nearly 600,000 dollars.
With 2.07 million USD thanks to the Masters in mid-November, Johnson’s total bonus was over 70 million USD. American arena history recorded five golfers breaking this milestone, including Johnson. The others are Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk and Vijay Singh.
With the current form, Johnson – the number one golfer in the world can easily stand on Furryk and Singh is still standing foot in front of the 71.5 million USD line. PGA Tour bonus record is still Woods with $ 120.8 million while Mickelson is second – $ 92.17 million.
In addition, the American arena will recognize the 200th player over the $ 10 million line.
Currently, the PGA Tour has 198 players at this level. Tommy Fleetwood – missing $ 765 and longer range – $ 600,000 including Sung Kang, Troy Merritt, Branden Grace. All three golfers have the opportunity to enter the eight-digit income list when the PGA Tour this season reaches 50 official events and the top 5 final in the “worst” tournament will be at least 160,000 USD.
In European Tour, Lee Westwood holds the record of bounty at $ 46,478 million. This 47-year-old Golfer has just consolidated his position by 2.77 million USD for the whole season, of which two million USD thanks to winning Race to Dubai. And this year, he is holding the opportunity to become the first golfer to ceiling 40 million euros, equivalent to 48.95 million USD in the European arena.
But right behind Westwood on the bounty front was Rory McIlroy. The Northern Ireland star has mainly competed on the PGA Tour for the past two years and has not been dated back to the former continent. But he remains a rival of Westwood because prize money at major events and the World Golf Championship team still counts towards the European Tour.
