Tiger Woods has once again ended a calendar year as golf’s top earner, despite suffering a pay cut of $48 million and failing to win a single tournament. The world’s number two golfer topped Golf Digest magazine’s annual list for 2010 with overall earnings of $74.2 million.Of that, only $2.29 million came from tournament purses with the rest accumulated off-course through endorsements and appearance fees. Phil Mickelson was second with total earnings of $40.18 million, followed by Arnold Palmer ($36 million), Greg Norman fourth ($30 million) and Jack Nicklaus fifth ($25.17 million). Jim Furyk, who collected a $10 million bonus for winning the PGA Tour’s season-long FedExCup in September, was sixth on $23.58 million.

Other players featuring in the top 50 included South Africans Ernie Els seventh ($21.5 million) and Gary Player eighth ($15.01 million), Britain’s Lee Westwood ninth ($14.73 million) and Ireland’s Padraig Harrington ($11.61 million).
