According to Forbes, on the 13th, the golfer who earned the most money over the past year was Jon Rahm from Spain, who is part of LIV Golf. Rahm earned $218 million—more than double the next highest player. Despite not having won any championships since last April and due to his injury, Rahm remained a top earner. Jon Rahm switched from the PGA Tour to LIV Golf last December for an estimated $400 million to $600 million.

In second place is Rory McIlroy from Northern Ireland, who earned $83 million.

Tiger Woods, who has $67 million, is in third place, followed by Scottie Scheffler, who is in fourth place with $61 million, both from the United States.

The fifth to tenth places were Cameron Smith from Australia with $47 million, Bryson DeChambeau from the United States with $44 million, Brooks Koepka from the United States with $43 million, Viktor Hovland from Norway with $40 million, Phil Mickelson from the United States with $38 million, and Dustin Johnson from the United States with $37 million, respectively.
