Jordan Spieth is the PGA Tour’s 11th member of the $50 million club.

A week after missing the Masters cut for the first time in eight appearances, the 28-year-old Spieth bounced back Sunday to win the RBC Heritage, firing a 5-under 66 to outlast Patrick Cantlay by one stroke.  

It was Spieth’s first win this season and 13th win of his career, pushing him further up the PGA Tour’s all-time money list.

  • Spieth took home $1.4M for winning the RBC Heritage and has made $2.8M in 2021-22.
  • He jumped from 13th to 11th all-time in career earnings ($50.6); he trails Sergio Garcia by $3.8M for the top 10.
  • He’s now 11th in the FedEx Cup standings; the season-long winner takes home an $18M bonus — which would bump Spieth into sixth ahead of Rory McIlroy ($61.5M).
  • Tiger Woods is the all-time leader ($120.9) by more than $25M.

With an approximate net worth of $110 million, Spieth is also one of the most successful golfers off the course. The three-time major winner’s endorsements include deals with Under Armour, Rolex, Titleist, AT&T, NetJets, Wheaties, and Coca-Cola.

Now No. 10 in the world for the first time since 2018, Spieth will vie for a fourth major victory — and the career grand slam — at next month’s PGA Championship at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He has the 10th-best odds to win (+2000).
