SI has come out with their “Fortunate 50” list for 2010.  Once again the top to highest paid athletes are golfers!

#1: Tiger Woods has been the highest paid athlete for seven years in a row, despite a drop in $22 million last year.  Boy how much could you do with an extra $22 million per year?  Was it worth it?  Despite dropping $22 million, Tiger still brought in $90 million.  I suspect that number will be smaller for next year.

#2: Phil Mickelson is once again #2 in earnings and brought in $61 million.
