The best golfers in the world, Jon Rahm, and Scottie Scheffler?

Golfers frequently use the colour green, and not just on the fairways and putting greens.

In some ways, the sport is built around monetary gain. There is always an element of chance involved when playing golf with friends, and the price of equipment and golf club dues may mount up rapidly.

Golf professionals may earn millions of dollars per year. With $7 million, Jon Rahm led the PGA Tour's money list in 2021. The typical player made $1,400,000 annually.

Going into this week's U.S. Open, Masters champion Scottie Scheffler is comfortably in first place on the PGA Tour earnings list with approximately $11 million in earnings (the third major of the golf season).

Affluent golfers are among the highest paid professions in the world, as evidenced by insane sums of money like that. But how affluent are the top golfers in the world?
