Tiger Woods' net worth as he heads into the 2018 Masters


Tiger Woods has been making quite the comeback in 2018, and experts and fans alike are on par with their excitement.

Following two top-five finishes so far this season, Woods is the favorite heading into the 2018 Masters. His return to Augusta National next week will mark his first Masters appearance since 2015.

With Woods dominating headlines once again, many are wondering just how much the athlete is worth? According to Forbes, the 42-year-old golfer had an estimated net worth of $740 million in 2016 and ranked 12 among the world's highest-paid athletes.

Most of Woods' fortune comes from endorsements from high profile brands like Nike, Upper Deck and Rolex, among many others. Just 10 percent of his income is from prize money, reports Forbes.
