Tiger Woods, the world number one has once again broken another record and this time it is nothing regarding his game. It is with the money he has earned till date. The maestro has reached a record breaking US $1.3 billion and has now topped the list for the first 50 people in Golf Digest.
In that list Adam Scott has made it to the eighth spot. This is the 11th time that Tiger Woods has topped that list. In his earnings of US $1.3 billion there are various categories including endorsements, prize money and various other things. The second person on the list is Phil Mickelson whose total earnings has amounted to US $52 million out of which he has earned US $45 million in endorsements and the rest has come from prize money. Phil hopes to win the US Open this year and complete a grand slam this season.
In the fifth position was Henrik Stenson from Sweden who earlier won the playoff crown of US PGA Tour. His total earning stands at US $21.45 million. In the sixth position is Rory Mcllroy of Northern Ireland with a total earning very close to Henrik Stenson amounting to US $20.6 million. Rory should get much credit for his place because he won only one title in a year last season.
In the seventh position was the legend from South Africa at an age of 78 and his total earnings amounted to US $16 million. This result was remarkable because no one expected him to be a part of that list. Eight position was filled by Adam Scott as mentioned earlier. The ninth and the tenth position was taken by Ernie Els from South Africa and Greg Norman of Australia. It was great to see the list and the respective amounts.

Former world number one Luke Donald has slammed the European Tour’s new ruling which states that any member of the Tour will have to mandatorily participate in any two of the three Final Series events preceding the Race to Dubai in order to be able to participate in the World Tour Championship at the venue.
Donald played his first in the two mandatory Final Series events, participating in the BMW Masters in Shanghai and he voiced his rather angry opinion over the ruling in the popular social networking site Twitter. And many feel Donald has a very valid reason at being angry with the new ruling after the unfolding of events in Shanghai.
The Englishman was paired opposite Joost Luiten for the first round of the event but the Dutchman managed to play only the tee off shot before withdrawing from the event with an apparent shoulder injury and according to Luke Donald, the whole scenario was pretty strange for him.
The new ruling that has been brought into the game by the European Tour came into effect this year and the regulation has also been listed in the official website of the European Tour. And despite having played just one shot at Shanghai, which, according to Donald, went almost about 120 yards straight down the middle, the Dutchman will still be considered as having featured in the event.
And insinuating to that, Luke Donald stated that he believes that had the rule not been imposed by the European Tour, the Dutchman would have withdrawn from the event before it even teed off, allowing the first player on reserve to play in the event.
And he also stated that he cannot blame the Dutchman for doing what he did and added that the rule changes was something that forced his hand.
