Miami, Florida – It looks like Forbes has researched into the assets of the famous, offering up its initial list of America’s Wealthiest Celebrities.
Professional Golfer Tiger Woods made the list and is the highest-ranking golfer on the list.
Woods comes in at No. 7 among America’s Wealthiest Celebrities with an estimated net worth of $740 million.
That puts him in company with Sean “Diddy” Combs ($750 million) and Dr. Dre ($710 million). Woods is also the second-highest athlete on the list, only trailing basketball great Michael Jordan’s $1.2 billion valuation.
Woods who did net roughly $100 million annually (combining on-course winnings and sponsorship dollars) in his heyday, has slowed down significantly since his 2009 scandal.
With his pal, Michael Jordan, ahead of him, Woods at some point could become the king of athletes (in net worth). He certainly is that in golf and will remain that way for quite some time, as Phil Mickelson, the only other golfer on this 20-person list, is valued at $375 million – just over half of Woods’s total – by Forbes.
Woods, 40, is also the youngest member on the Forbes’ recent list. The top earner on Forbes’ rundown is 72-year-old George Lucas at $4.6 billion.
