Rory McIlroy began playing golf before he could even say the word “golf” and thankfully, he has amassed a significant net worth through his skills. Despite his relatively young age, he is one of the sport’s wealthiest stars, having played in the European and PGA Tours. He has several awards to his name, won multiple championships, and consistently ranked among the best players in the world since 2007.

With an estimated $150 million in personal net worth, Rory McIlroy has built a fortune that many would be envious of, even among his co-professionals. Here is how the Northern Ireland native made his impressive net worth.

Rory McIlroy Has a Net Worth of $150 Million

Over fifteen years as a professional golfer, Rory McIlroy has amassed a personal net worth of $150 million. The pro-golfer has won more than 25 championships, with at least 18 of them coming at the PGA Tour, followed by 14 at the European Tour. Some of his significant victories include winning the PGA Championship in 2012 and 2014, US Open in 2011, and the Master’s Tournament in 2015.

His series of victories has propelled him into becoming one of the world’s most famous golfers and helped him rake millions in brand endorsements and tournament winnings. Those two sources have become the highest contributors to Rory’s $150 million net worth.

His Road to Astonishing Wealth

Mcllroy has his father, Gerry, to thank for the millions he enjoys today. Senior Mcllroy, a spectacular golfer in his own right, he exposed his son to the game he loved at a very tender age – 18 months. He was barely two years old.

As Rory grew, he fell head over heels in love with the sport. Reports reveal that as a kid, he would sleep with his club while holding it in the correct grip his father had shown him during practice.

At seven years old, Rory became the youngest member of the Hollywood Golf Club. He played almost every day. And though his skills began to pay off more at adulthood, Rory maintains that those childhood days were his best.

Rory’s father did more than just coaching his son to be the best. He also was his inspiration and source of courage. His son went on to stage an outstanding amateur career, setting records and achieving countless feats, including winning the 2006 European Amateur title and topping the World Amateur Golf Ranking for one week.

One fact that best describes his father’s impact on his road to a $150 million net worth was an incident when he was 15. His dad placed a bet that he would win the Open by 25 years old, and he won $170,000 after his son scooped the trophy in 2014, aged 25. Rory also went home with his first major earning, the $1.66 million prize money.

He Has Made More than $70 million in Prize Money

Since his first major victory at the US Open in April 2011, Rory McIlroy has earned more than $55 million. His first prize money was at the European Tour when he made over $300,000 in his first European Tour season. By November 2008, just over a year after turning pro, Mcllroy became the youngest golfer to rank among the World’s Top 50 golfers. In 2009, he achieved his first win on the European Tour, and in 2010, his first win on the PGA Tour.

Also, in 2011, he became the youngest player to reach $10 million in career earnings on the European Tour. He achieved the same feat in 2012 on the PGA Tour, thanks to his winning of the 2012 PGA Championship title.

As of 2019, Mcllroy has earned more than $34.2 million in just European Tour events and another $30.2 million from PGA Tour events. One of his most significant prize earnings came in August 2019, when he won $15 million after winning the FedEx Cup. The victory also earned him his third PGA Tour Player of the Year.

Endorsement Deals Are His Biggest Source of Income

Like most athletes, McIlroy banks more from endorsement deals. In 2013, the same year he created his Rory McIlroy Management Services Ltd, he signed a $100 million, 10-year deal with Nike, which pays out between $15 million to $20 million annually. Four years after the Nike deal, he signed a 10-year extension with the sports brand, worth $200 million.

Shortly after signing the deal, Nike exited the golf equipment business, paving the way for Rory McIlroy to boost his net worth even more with a 10-year $100 million contract with TaylorMade for golf equipment.

In 2015 he replaced Tiger Woods as the face of EA Sports’ PGA Tour games. Woods had represented the brand of games from 1998 to 2013. Rory’s other endorsement partners include Upper Deck, Omega, and he was an ambassador for the Jumeirah group between 2007 and 2012; a role that fetched him a significant but undisclosed amount of money. So far, more than 80% of Rory McIlroy’s net worth has come from brand endorsements.

How Rory McIlroy Spends His Enormous Net Worth

In 2012, Rory spent $9.5 million on a giant mansion in Jupiter, Florida. The house measures 15,286 square feet and includes six bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Rory owns a $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador, which he was spotted driving in 2013. Back in 2011, rumor had it that he bought a Bugatti Veyron valued at almost $2 million, but he openly debunked the claims. In 2015 BMW gifted him with their i8, the world’s fastest electric car valued at about $150,000.

A substantial fraction of his wealth also goes to charity. His Rory Foundation is a host of Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open. In 2016, Rory donated the entire $750,000 he won from the event to two local children charities; the Jack and Jill Foundation, and the Laura Lynn Children’s Hospice.

His Wife Used to Be an American PGA Tour Employee

Rory McIlroy is married to Erica Stoll, a woman whom he met back in September 2012. At the time, the latter was working for the PGA of America, as the manager of Championship Volunteer Operations. The two met after she famously woke the pro-golfer just before he missed his tee time at the Ryder Cup.

Stoll’s early intervention and the police’s subsequent help saved Rory from arriving late to the course, and he eventually went on to win the competition. Due to a preference for a quiet life, there’s not many details available publicly about Erica Stoll’s life. However, it is confirmed fact that she is a native of Irondequoit, New York, and has one known sibling, Natalie Stoll.

Though Rory McIlroy and Erica Stoll started their relationship as friends, romance later blossomed between them. At the time of their meeting, Rory was in a relationship with the tennis player, Caroline Wozniacki. But it ended in 2014 after they had been engaged for five months.

Rory and Erica Stoll have been Married Since 2017

After he ended his engagement to the tennis player, Rory McIlroy and Erica Stoll began an official relationship. Their union led to the altar in April 2017 at the famous 800-year-old Ashford Castle, located in Ireland’s County Mayo.
