Tiger Woods topped the 2022 Player Impact Programme (PIP) for the second year running, as Rory McIlroy claimed second place.
Shane Lowry finished twelfth in the list which added a cool $3 million onto his season earnings making it the most lucrative year of his career to date.
The PIP Programme is designed to reward players for how much interest they generate in the PGA TOUR by internet searches, social media reach, mentions and television time.
Despite playing in just three events this year – with next week’s Hero World Challenge set to be his fourth – Woods claimed the top PIP bonus of $15 million while current world number one McIlroy settling for the $12 million cheque for second place.
The Race to Dubai and FedEx Cup winner is due to pair up with Woods in the latest edition of ‘The Match’ against Jordan Spieth ($9m) and Justin Thomas ($7.5m) who finished third and fourth respectively.
Lowry earned $3.61 million on the PGA TOUR last season while he has already pocketed $88,305 in the off-season while he con €1.71 million on the DP World Tour.
The additional PIP money has taken his 2022 earnings to $8.47 million which surpasses the $5 million he won in 2019.
