What Is Rory McIlroy's Net Worth In 2022?

Rory McIlroy is one of the most successful professional golfers of all time, having spent over 100 weeks as world number one during his career. According to McIlroy’s website, he has been an avid golfer for as long as he can remember.

Hailing from Northern Ireland, at the age of just 9, he claimed the Under-10 World Championship in Florida - substantiating his potential as a golf prodigy.

Through his teen years McIlroy went from strength to strength, rising through the ranks of amateur golfers until, in 2007, he topped the pile, placing 1st in the World Amateur Rankings.

In the same year, he became the youngest player to receive his European Tour card, though it wasn’t until 2009 that he won his first title in the Dubai Desert Classic.

Throughout the 2010s, McIlroy extended his hot-streak, taking the US Open in 2011 with an astonishing total score of 16-under, the lowest score in the history of the tournament to this day.

Further highlights include winning a Major in 2012 and two in 2014, making him only the third golfer in history to claim 4 Majors before the age of 25 - an honour shared with the highly esteemed Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods.

McIlroy’s career victory tally is now up to 33 - incidentally the same as his age - and he continues to propel the sport, sitting 3rd in the current Pro World Ranking. Knowing how lucrative golf can be, fans want to know how much the pro is worth now.

Rory McIlroy is worth $170 million (£140 million) in 2022, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

McIlroy’s income comes from his tour victories and endorsements. Surprisingly, his golfing victories only (take ‘only’ with a pinch of salt) total $70 million (£57.8 million). In 2019, he won the FedEx Cup which rewarded him a record-breaking $15 million (£12.4 million) in prize money, although this is not counted towards official money lists. If it did, McIlroy would only stand behind Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods in all-time earnings.

In fact, endorsements and brand deals constitute the lion’s share of McIlroy’s net worth. McIlroy reportedly earns over $37 million (£30.6 million) from his long-standing Nike endorsement. He also reportedly has a deal with TaylorMade, which is worth $100 million (£83 million) over 10 years. 

Golf has always been a sport which attracts serious money and that does not appear to be slowing down. Tiger Woods, golf superstar, was the first athlete in any sport to reach a net worth of $1 billion, thanks to his brand deals and golf successes; McIlroy is amongst a fleet of peers who are looking to emulate this feat. A highly controversial topic at the moment which encourages even more money being pumped into golf is the Saudi-backed Super League, and McIlroy has publicly announced that he won’t “tarnish” his reputation for “extra millions” much to the delight of his fans.
