18. Adam Scott ($40 million)
Australian golfer Adam Scott has broken numerous national records since bursting onto the scene in the early ’00s. Indeed, he became the first Aussie to win The Masters in 2013. One year later, moreover, he enjoyed a brief three-month stint as the world’s number one.
17. Lee Westwood ($40 million)
Lee Westwood may not have a major championship to his name, but he’s one of the rare golfers to win tournaments over five continents. In 2010, meanwhile, Westwood usurped Tiger Woods as the world number one, and he has also played for Europe in the ultimate ten editions of the Ryder Cup. That $40 million fortune is clearly well-earned, then.
16. Luke Donald ($40 million)
Fellow Englishman Luke Donald has also built a $40 million fortune having spent an overall total of 56 weeks at the top of the World Golf Ranking. He’s also been awarded the European Tour Golfer and PGA Player of the Year awards and the Vardon Trophy during his career. His stellar achievements were rewarded with an MBE in 2012.
