Tiger Woods has made a lot of money in his career playing golf tournaments. He's made even more through endorsements, appearances, his golf businesses and other sources. What's the total? How high do Woods' career earnings go?

Very high - it's into the billions now.

Tiger's career earnings just on the PGA Tour totaled, through the end of the 2016 season, just over $110 million. Tiger's total earnings were $110,061,012 on the PGA Tour, from the time he turned pro in the summer of 1996 through the end of 2016.

Woods' career income, including both on-course and off-course earnings, was more than $1.4 billion according to Golf Digest. Since 2003, Golf Digest has compiled the Top 50 earners in golf, combining on-course and off-course income. But the magazine has gone back to 1996, when Woods turned pro, to estimate Woods' total income during the course of his career.

When his overall 2016 earnings were computed, Woods' total career earnings - combining winnings in golf along with other business deals, endorsement deals, licensing deals, etc. - was $1,454,539,473, according to Golf Digest's estimates.
