The PGA Championship’s Legendary Billion-Dollar Grouping

  • Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Jordan Spieth will play together for the first two days of the second major of the year.
  • Collectively, the trio have won 115 PGA Tour events — including 22 majors.

On Thursday, three of golf’s biggest names — and biggest earners — will tee off together at Tulsa’s Southern Hills Country Club. 

Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Jordan Spieth — who boast a combined net worth exceeding $1 billion — will play together for the first two days of the PGA Championship. 

The trio have collectively won 115 PGA Tour events — including 22 majors — and Spieth is the only one (narrowly) outside the top 10 in career Tour earnings.

  • Woods: 82 Tour wins, 15 majors, $121M in career earnings (No. 1 all-time), approx. net worth $800M
  • McIlroy: 20 Tour wins, four majors, $62M (No. 6), $150M
  • Spieth: 13 Tour wins, three majors, $52M (No. 11), $100M

The three superstars will bring plenty of drama, too. Woods (+6500, No. 27) is looking to pass Sam Snead with his 83rd Tour win, but this is only his second tournament since nearly losing his right leg in a car crash.

Meanwhile, the 33-year-old McIlroy (+1200, 2), who joined Woods and Jack Nicklaus as the only golfers to win four majors by 25, has been searching for No. 5 since 2014, and Spieth (+1400, T3) can complete history’s sixth career Grand Slam.

Scottie Scheffler (+1200) — who won the Masters and three other events this season — remains the betting favorite.
