Alongside Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy is arguably one of the biggest and recognized golfers on the planet. A four-time Major winner, he holds over 35 professional wins worldwide, with the current World No.1 spending over 115 weeks in that position.

A three-time FedEx Cup and four-time Race to Dubai/DP World Tour Rankings winner, it's safe to say the Northern Irishman has accumulated a lot of awards and money throughout his career. Here, we take a look at his net worth.


We begin with McIlroy's on-course earnings, where he currently sits fourth in the PGA Tour's career money list with earnings of over $68 million. However, this doesn't factor in his three FedEx Cup victories, which total $43 million, meaning the number now jumps over the $100 million mark.

On the other side of the pond, and with the DP World Tour, McIlroy sits top of their money list, with over €43 million to his name, although there is some overlap with the PGA Tour due to Majors and WGCs. That figure doesn't include his four Race to Dubai victories either, which would have netted him around $10 million.

In 2022, Forbes released the highest paid golfers list and, although LIV golfers dominated, McIlroy placed sixth with $43 million - $9 million on-course and $34 million off-course. In May 2020, the Sunday Times Rich List estimated his net worth at £170m ($220m) but, since then, that number would have likely increased.

Playing primarily in the States, McIlroy does still appear at certain tournaments like the Abu Dhabi Championship and Dubai Desert Classic, where he reportedly receives around $2m per appearance in those said events. It was also reported that he declined a $2.5m fee to tee it up in the 2020 Saudi International.

So, what sponsors endorse the Northern Irishman? Well, previously, he has been sponsored by the likes of Titleist, FootJoy, Jumeirah, Bose, Oakley and EA Sports. Currently, his sponsors are TaylorMade, Nike, NBC Sports/Golf Pass, Omega, Optum, with McIlroy announcing a new sponsorship deal in 2022 that sees him become a brand ambassador for financial management company, Workday.

His TaylorMade deal, which he signed in 2017, is said to be worth $10m per year for 10 years. Playing 14 TaylorMade clubs, golf ball and TaylorMade bag, McIlroy also has a Nike contract which was extended in 2017 for 10 years. This is said to be worth $10m per year, having been worth $20m per year from 2013-2016 when he was using Nike clubs, ball and bag. He is estimated to earn around $35m a year in total from his sponsorships alone.

Along with his sponsors, McIlroy, 15-time Major winner Tiger Woods, and former Golf Channel President, Mike McCarley, have launched a sports media and technology company called TMRW Sports, which plans to use technology as a way to bring golf to younger fans. 

According to Golfweek, the duo have also proposed a number of stadium-based events to combat the LIV threat, with the series featuring a number of one-day events designed to complement the PGA Tour. 

Although the costs etc of TMRW are unclear, the list of investors is seriously impressive, with seven-time F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton brought on board as an investor, as well as the likes of tennis stars Serena Williams and Andy Murray, former Real Madrid footballer Gareth Bale, musician and actor Justin Timberlake, NFL quarterback Josh Allen, and a clutch of NBA basketball players including four-time NBA champions Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala, Chris Paul and Jayson Tatum.
