It’s nice to be Jordan Spieth these days.

WITH HIS SECOND-place finish at the PGA Championship this week, Jordan Spieth has now made $10.40 million on the PGA Tour this season in 21 events putting him within easy reach of the all-time record.

In 2004,  Vijay Singh won nine of the 29 tournaments he entered and took home a record $10.91 million in earnings that season. More impressive was the season put up by Tiger Woods in 2007 when he won seven tournaments and $10.87 million in earnings despite playing in just 16 events.

Thinks look a little different if we consider inflation as Singh’s earnings translate to $13.8 million in today’s dollars and Woods’ inflation-adjusted earnings were $12.5 million and none of this includes the FedEx Cup bonuses at the end of the year which is $10 million for the winner. But with a half-dozen events left this year, Spieth should easily break the record.
