With Tiger back in contention on the PGA tour, a new map from noobnorm.com breaks down his career earnings state by state.
In September 2012, he became the first golfer to break the $100 million barrier, and while subsequent seasons were interrupted by recurring injuries, Woods has now accumulated over $110 million in total prize money on the PGA tour.
A new study from sports, fitness and outdoors site noobnorm.com, has analyzed data from the PGA tour, to work out how much Tiger has earned in each US state.
NoobNorm co-founder David McSweeney explains, “With Tiger finally back in contention on the tour, and looking back to somewhere close to his best, we thought it would be a good time to look at some of the data surrounding his incredible career. In a previous study, we worked out that Tiger has earned $1,282 for every shot he’s hit on the tour, this time we wanted to work out where he was when he earned all that cash.”
The findings, which have been presented in the form of a map, show that Woods has earned more money ($19,981,868) in Florida than any other US state. Ohio, where Woods has earned $16,335,145 throughout his career, was the second biggest state for earnings, with California ($16,057,684) third.
Overall, Woods has earned money playing golf in 25 US states, with the smallest total in West Virginia where he has so far earned $37,922.

Woods’ next opportunity to add to his earnings will be at the Valspar Championship in Florida, which begins on March 8th.
