Tiger Woods' earnings exceeded more than $155 million on the golf course, which is only a fraction of his overall career earning, which including promotional deals is estimated to be in the area of $1.3 billion, according to 11th annual Golf Digest 50 money list.

Woods, who turned 38 last week, has won 14 major victories in his career having spent the last year climbing back on top of the golf rankings following a slump after his well-publicized 2010 divorce from former Swedish model Elin Nordegren after a one-car crash led to his admission of extramarital affairs.

Woods is currently dating world champion skier Lindsey Vonn.

No. 2 on Golf Digest's list is Phil Mickelson, who similarly earned more than 85 percent of their money off the course. In his career, the 43-year-old Mickelson has won 42 events on the PGA Tour, including five major championships and three Masters.

No. 3 on the list was Arnold Palmer, the 84-year-old golf legend who nicknamed "The King," has won 62 PGA Tours, four Master's Tournaments, and numerous other competitions during his career. Having been inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1974, Palmer earned $40 million last year, all of which was off the course.

Palmer was followed by fellow golf icon Jack Nicklaus, who earned $9,625 on the course and $26 million off it.

Rounding out the top five was Swedish golfer Henrik Stenson, who unlike the top four moneymakers in golf earned the majority of his money actually playing golf, rather than endorsing drinks and gear.

Stenson earned $18,594,670 in 2013 on the golf course, having won the European Tour and the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup, Golf Digest reported, meaning nearly 87 percent of his $21-million-plus of earnings came from actually playing the game. Stenson was also named European golfer of the year for 2013.
