Not only has he earned millions of awards over the years, but he has also amassed a fortune by monetizing his popularity with huge sponsorship deals.
Although one of the the richest people in sportsHis former caddy insists that Americans “never” cared about cash.
Steve Williams, who has carried the bag for Woods for 13 of his 15 major titles, revealed that fact during an appearance on Majors to pursue audio file.
Williams told host Evin Priest that the cash he wins at events is always on his mind as he goes through all the post-tournament admins that golfers are required to do.

“One of the things I admire most about Tiger – I admire so many things about him – but one thing I absolutely adore about Tiger is that at the end of a tournament you go into the top scorer’s hut and you sign your scorecard and you put it in,” he said.
“They always have a flyer that distributes the prize money to everyone so you can look up at the screen to see how you’ve done and look down to see how much you’ve won.
“Tiger has never, never once looked at that. He plays to win titles and create records, not for the prize money.”
Instead, Williams says his biggest motivation is to reach the record of most major titles set by legendary Jack Nicklaus.
“He’s the only player I’ve ever caught, the only player I’ve ever seen who never looked at that piece of paper,” added the New Zealander.
“OK, you could argue that he doesn’t need to look at that paper, but every player looks at that paper, and he never did.”
Williams continued: “One more thing that I admired about him (that was) when he was approached to hang out at an event overseas.
“All the players always ask ‘What’s the wallet at that event?’ Tiger never asked what the wallet was.
“Whenever he gets an offer to play at events abroad, the prize money has nothing to do with the decision to play or not to play in an event where he was invited abroad.”
Woods can’t seem to match that record of Nicklaus, after admitting a full-time return to the professional league has been unquestionable since his car crash last February. .
The 46-year-old man spent months recovering from extensive injuries to his leg, and recently poured cold water on the thought that he will return to play regularly Early.
