Phil Mickelson has won 44 PGA Tour events and five major championships; both rank second behind Tiger Woods among active players. His $91 million in career prize money trails only Woods all time among golfers. But the biggest paydays for "Lefty" have been off the course from sponsors to the tune of $750 million for the career of the popular pitchman. Mickelson added endorsement deals with Amstel Light and hat brand Melin in 2020. His latest course design, Mickelson National Golf Club, is set to open in 2020, just outside Calgary.
When all is said and done, Mickelson ranks as the 25th highest-paid athlete and the 77th highest-paid celebrity of 2020. This is how he built his fortune to become one of golf’s best athletes.
