Rory McIlroy Net Worth: how much is the PGA Tour star really worth?

Rory McIlroy is one of the best golfers on the planet but he's also one of the richest. 

There are no prizes for guessing who tops the list - it's Tiger Woods - but it is estimated McIlroy is worth approximately $150 million. 

These figures are calculated by Celebrity Net Worth as of 2021 and they may have to be taken with a pinch of salt. 

One thing is for certain though and that's figuring out just how much tournament prize money McIlroy has amassed over the years. 

McIlroy has averaged between $40-50 million a year from tournaments alone and that was boosted by winning the FedEx Cup for $15 million in 2019. 

He turned professional in 2007 and a year later he had joined the ranks as one of the best in the world, sliding into the top 200 in the world rankings. 

His first victory came at the Dubai Desert Classic, elevating him to 16th in the world in the same year he played in his first Masters.

McIlroy was the youngest ever player to reach €10 million in earnings on the European Tour when he was 22 years old. 

He famously signed a Nike deal worth between $100-250 million in 2013. Then he extended that deal by 10 years in 2017 worth $200 million because Nike stopped making golf equipment. 

This meant McIlroy, 32, could sign an equipment deal with TaylorMade worth $100 million. McIlroy's biggest paydays came at the FedEx Cup, which he won in 2016 for $10 million and then again three years later, worth $15 million. 

It has been reported by many news outlets that McIlroy has earns approximately $40 million a year through his various other endorsements. His other sponsors include NBC Sports/Golf Pass, Omega and Optum. 

McIlroy loves his cars and is reported to own these:

BMW I3

BMW I8

Ferrari F430

Ferrari F12

Lamborghini Aventador

Range Rover Sport

Bugatti Veryon Sports Edition. 

McIlroy wed Erica Stoll in 2017. 

The couple have one daughter together, called Poppy. 

Stoll, 29, is from New York and met McIlroy through her work for the PGA. 

She was one of the employees who helped make McIlroy make his tee time at the Ryder Cup at Medinah in 2012 when he had overslept on the Sunday.
