World No.1 Tiger Woods has cracked $US1.3 billion ($1.45 billion) in career earnings by leading the Golf Digest 50 income list for 2013, with Australian Adam Scott coming in eighth.
The 14-time major champion topped the list for the 11th time in its 11-year history with $US83 million, including an estimated $US71 million off the course and more than $US12 million in prizemoney.
Golf Digest magazine reported on its website on Tuesday that Woods' winnings of more than $US155 million reflect less than 12 per cent of his career earnings, with $US1.16 billion coming from endorsements since his pro debut in 1996, a figure that continues to increase even after his infamous sex scandal and ensuing divorce.
Second on the Golf Digest list was Phil Mickelson at $US52 million, with an estimated $US45 million in endorsements and other non-prizemoney income.
