Who are the Highest Paid Golfers in the Game? Some might surprise you!

This list put together by Golf Digest, shows just how uneven the playing field is for men and women golfers!  When a golfer like Jason Dufner (who is no slouch on the golf course) is ahead of World #1 Lydia Ko in earnings, that is just wrong!  Folks, start watching the LPGA Tour on TV and you will find these women can really play!  Just as exciting and competitive as the men.

For the first 12 years of the Golf Digest 50 all-encompassing money list, Tiger Woods was No. 1, usually by a wide margin. But reduced play because of injuries and the loss of more than half a dozen A-list endorsement partners after the 2009 scandal caught up to him in 2016, when he fell to No. 3 behind Jordan Spieth and Mickelson. This year, Woods is No. 4 behind Rory McIlroy, Arnold Palmer and Mickelson.
