According to a study in the US, Rory McIlroy topped the top 60 golfers forecasted to have the highest income from the PGA Tour.
Consulting firm Duff & Phelps has just published research results on the earning ability of PGA Tour stars until they turn 50. With a database of 1,000 top players in the world, this unit offers Top 60 potential earnings from tournaments and promotions.
They also confirmed that position on the world rankings (OWGR), which reflects performance is a variable that strongly affects cash flow, while promotion accounts for 65% of total income. And therefore, Duff & Phelps assume the OWGR position does not change much during the forecast time.
On this basis, McIlroy, who is 31 years old, leads with an estimated $ 309 million over the next 19 years. The Northern Irish star is fourth OWGR, has long-term contracts with Nike and TaylorMade.
After McIlroy was Justin Thomas, Tiger Woods and Jon Rahm, respectively, in the range of 239-201 million. Thomas was born in 1993 and Rahm 1994. But considering the speed of making money, Woods is the fastest because he is 44 years old and only six years left to pocket $ 202 million. Xander Schauffele closed the top 5 with 197 million USD.
The second half of the top 10, according to Duff & Phelps, all American players, started with Dustin Johnson and also Bryson DeChambeau eight. DeChambeau is the new major US Open champion, taking the lead in the average kicking distance at the PGA Tour last season and this season.
And in terms of citizenship in the top 60, the US has the upper hand with 29 people, Britain is second – 9 people, Australia is third – 4 people and Japan is fourth with three people.
Using data from 1996 onwards, the researchers concluded that golfers who reached the top 10 OWGR by the age of 22 years later were more successful than those entering the same segment by the age of 30.
