Rory McIlroy is one of the best golfers on the planet so it's no surprise he's one of the richest.

Only the man himself knows his true net worth, but we can have a good guess at just how much money the golf star has. 

As of May 2024, McIlroy had amassed a total of $87,056,223 in official PGA Tour prize money.

He's also racked up an astonishing $47,434,525 during his career on the European-based DP World Tour

Throw in the fact he's also got lucrative multiyear contracts with TaylorMade and Nike, it's not unreasonable to suggest the Northern Irishman is worth a pretty penny. 

Afterall, he flies around the world in a private jet he bought for $30m!

Let's dive in!

Nike and TaylorMade

A bushy-haired, chubby-cheeked McIlroy reportedly agreed an endorsement contract with Nike in 2013 that was worth between $100-250m

In 2017, the four-time major champ formally agreed a 10-year extension to that deal. 

During the early days of his career, McIlroy was also using Nike clubs, but the brand discontinued making golf equipment in 2017. 

That allowed McIlroy to negotiate an equipment contract with TaylorMade, said to be worth in the region of $100m

McIlroy, along with Tiger Woods, are the two highest-profile staff players with the brand. 

The Northern Irishman extended his contract with TaylorMade in May 2022.

McIlroy, as you can imagine, is a heavily endorsed athlete. This is also where he makes another chunk of cash. 

It is estimated he makes $40-50m per year through his partners. 

Aside from Nike and TaylorMade, the golfer is endorsed by Optum, Omega, Golfpass.

The PGA Tour introduced the player impact program (PIP) in 2021. 

In short, it rewards players with cash for boosting engagement and publicity of the PGA Tour. 

It will come as no surprise to you that McIlroy has made some big bucks here. 

Tiger Woods proved he still moved the needle in the inaugural PIP, scooping $8m

McIlroy placed third and was given $3.5m

In 2022, Woods was the top dog again as the PIP was expanded to reward the top 20 players. 

Woods was given an almighty $15m whereas McIlroy finished second, earning $12m

McIlroy was also the beneficiary of another huge wedge of cash after he remained loyal to the PGA Tour amid the schism with LIV Golf

In April 2024, he was reportedly told he was the beneficiary of an equity share in PGA Tour Enterprises worth $50m

TMRW Sports then launched TGL. 

GolfMagic has already written everything you needed to know about TGL, the tech-forward, primetime golf league that features the PGA Tour's top talent. 

McIlroy has also put a bunch of money in other ventures. 

In 2019, he set up Symphony Ventures. The primary purpose of the fund was to invest in emerging companies. One of those is fitness tech company Whoop

When McIlroy invested in Whoop, it was worth $1.2bn. The valuation has since grown exponentially. 

He's also invested in Future, a one-on-one digital fitness training platform and health companies called LetsGetChecked and Kaia Health

Troon, the largest golf management company, also has McIlroy's money behind it.

In October 2023, McIlroy joined the backers of F1 team Alpine. 

He was part of a $217m strategic investment into the team led by consortium Otro Capital. Joining McIlroy in that move was boxer Anthony Joshua and footballer Trent Alexander-Arnold. 

McIlroy said he was open to the idea of investing into his beloved football team, Manchester United, at some point in the future. 

He said: "Sports team ownership used to be limited to private equity, and people who had a ton of money. But now sports stars are becoming more savvy and using their money in the right way."
