Dustin Johnson is one of the most successful golfers in the world and has enjoyed many, many successes throughout his career. Currently part of the LIV Golf League (opens in new tab), he has over 35 professional wins worldwide, with victories on the PGA and DP World Tours, as well as LIV Golf.

In 2022, Forbes released the highest paid golfers list (opens in new tab), in which DJ ranked second, with LIV golfers dominating the top 10 (opens in new tab). Pocketing an eye watering $97 million, with $68 million of that coming from on-course earnings, and $29 million off-course. Such was the amount of money earned, the American ranked as the fifth-highest-paid athlete in the world.


After moving to the Saudi-backed LIV Golf league, Johnson (opens in new tab) has found his net worth increasing further, not that it was on the small side anyway... In the first season, and in just eight events, he picked up over $35 million (opens in new tab), which doesn't include his reported $125m multi-year contract.

In terms of career earnings on the PGA Tour, Johnson (opens in new tab) currently sits 3rd all-time on $73m behind Phil Mickelson ($94m), and Tiger Woods ($120m). This is according to the PGA Tour website and, because we don't believe this takes into account his FedEx Cup win in 2020, this could shoot up to $88m.

Johnson has obviously played limited events on the DP World Tour (previously European Tour), but he has victories in events that are co-sanctioned by both the PGA and DP World Tours, such as Majors and WGCs. He has also had two victories at the Saudi International which add up to over $1m.

At those events he would have also picked up huge appearance fees. It has been reported that several players were offered up to $3m to appear at the event in Saudi Arabia, Rory McIlroy (opens in new tab) for example turned down $2.5m.

Given Johnson's (opens in new tab) high-profile in the game, we can assume he would have received offers toward the top-end here. However, we are yet to confirm the exact figures.

Of course for many years Johnson has been a big player in the game, sitting atop the world rankings for 134 weeks which puts him 3rd all-time behind Greg Norman and Woods.

As such, he has commanded high-profile endorsements with the likes of TaylorMade and adidas, both brands he has remained loyal to for a very long time now. In fact, in 2021, Johnson signed a contract extension with TaylorMade, continuing the 14-year relationship they have had together. We are yet to confirm how much this is worth, but he does play a full bag of TaylorMade clubs, whilst also using a TaylorMade ball and bag.

We move to DJ's sponsors which, due to his move to LIV Golf, have reduced significantly throughout 2022. According to his website, the American is sponsored by TaylorMade, adidas, BodyArmor, Hublot and Perfect Practice. Previously, he was also sponsored by RBC, but the company dropped Johnson (opens in new tab) when he moved to LIV Golf, as well as Graeme McDowell.

It is unclear as to whether Johnson is still sponsored by NetJets and LA Golf, a brand that makes golf shafts and shot to prominence when Bryson DeChambeau started using them.

Outside of golf, and in June 2021, it was also announced that Johnson would be teaming up with Wayne Gretzky - the father of his wife Paulina Gretzky (opens in new tab) - former NBA Hall of Famer Steve Nash, and billionaire Joe Tsai as co-owners of the National Lacrosse League's new franchise in Las Vegas.
