You didn't read what I wrote.

It's not about how much the top guys are paid. It's about how much the top guys are paid relative to the bottom guys. The top guys on the PGA Tour are subsidizing the bottom guys. That the bottom guys make 25% as much as the top guys isn't seen in any other major sport. The top guys in those sports earn 20x what some of the bottom guys make.

So true! Some years ago I read an interview with a lower level player, who had finished down the money list in some tournament. This was when Tiger was in his ascendancy, and he said that every player on Tour owed a huge debt to him! He said that back in the day, where he finished might have made him $4K! Because of all the money Tiger attracted to the Tour, these days he made $40K! Thank you Tiger!

Listened to a recent NLU podcast today.  They say rumors are that the PGL are floating $200m to $250m to Tiger.  They didn't say over what term, but that's double his lifetime tour winnings.  They also said the scuttlebutt is that the PGL has $1B in cash ready to back this. 

Of course, none of this is confirmed.
