Record-Breaking Earnings for Golfers in 2024

In 2024, Jon Rahm topped the list of highest-paid golfers with a staggering $218 million, despite not winning any tournaments this year. This record is more than double the earnings of the next highest-paid golfer, Rory McIlroy, who made $83 million. Rahm’s income primarily comes from his move to LIV Golf, a league funded by Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF), which has dramatically changed the financial landscape of golf.

Rory McIlroy and Scottie Scheffler, who also had record-breaking earnings, round out the top earners with impressive performances and lucrative sponsorship deals. The PGA Tour and LIV Golf continue to push player earnings to new heights, though the future of golf's fragmented landscape remains uncertain.
