Rory McIlroy will wake up today $15m richer after his victory in the Tour Championship.
The Northern Irishman won the richest first prize in golf at the PGA Tour season finale last night to bring his season’s earnings to a mind-boggling $24,285,286.
Despite not adding to his haul of four majors, McIlroy can justifiably look back on his year’s work with plenty of satisfaction.
WATCH - HOW TO MASTER RORY'S POWER MOVE
The Tour Championship was one of three PGA Tour titles he won. He had five other top-fives and six more top-tens, missing only two cuts in 19 tournaments.
The high bar he set this year is made all the more impressive when you consider how his prize money breaks down.
• $1,278,172.90 per event
• $337,295.63 per round
• $18,869.69 per hole
• $4,924.07 per shot
Nice work if you can get it, eh?
Also worth noting is that his caddie, Harry Diamond, will have enjoyed a profitable season.
Assuming that Rory pays him 10% of his winnings, Diamond will have made $2.43m this season. For context, that’s more than Jordan Spieth made this season ($2,124,192) and is only slightly less than the current LPGA money leader Jin Young Ko has made this season ($2,618,631).
