23 Richest Golf Players Ever

23. David Toms – $35 Million

Toms owns a golf course design business, which he describes as what he plans to do after his playing days are over. His early works, all in Louisiana, were as a player-consultant, and in renovation and redesign of existing courses.

David was in the top 10 of the Official World Golf Ranking for 175 weeks between 2001 and 2006.

In 2003, Toms created the David Toms Foundation for the purpose of helping underprivileged, abused and abandoned children. Grants are made to programs that are designed to bolster a child’s self-esteem and help him or her develop into a productive citizen.

His foundation raised more than $1.5 million for Hurricane Katrina relief. For his efforts, Toms shared the 2006 Golf Writers Association of America’s Charlie Bennett Award with fellow Louisianans, Kelly Gibson and Hal Sutton.
