It was nice to have a nice start to my career

"The purse increase helps," Woods cheap nike air more uptempo said after a final-round 66 left him two strokes behind winner Rory McIlroy in the second week of the four-tournament FedEx Cup playoff. "I won fewer tournaments than Sam Snead has, but obviously he was in a different era. It's just that we happened to time it up right and happened to play well when the purses really had a nice spike up."
Snead, the career leader with 82 PGA Tour victories, earned just $620,126 in a career that started in 1937. His biggest prize was $28,000 for a second-place finish in Milwaukee in 1968, and for most of his prime he played in tournaments with a total purse -- that's all the payouts combined -- of less than $100,000.
Woods has won 74 tournaments, second all-time, including 38 times with a first prize of $1 million or more. His winnings come out to an average of $362,276.89 for each of his 277 career starts.
But it's not just good timing: Prize money skyrocketed on the PGA Tour after Woods went pro and brought huge crowds and television audiences to the sport.
"It was nice to have a nice start to my career, and I won some majors early," he said. "I think we got some interest in the game of golf. A lot more youth, that's for sure."
“I think I’ve learned how to handle kevin garnett shoes for sale winning big events,” McIlroy said, “and carrying myself forward, and not dwelling on what’s happened.”
In other words, don’t get distracted by the money and fame. All that matters is the winning.
Rory is sounding and playing like a young Tiger. Monday’s win solidified his No. 1 world ranking. He moved the top of the FedEx Cup standings. He tied Woods with his third win of the season, though McIlroy’s list includes a major.
That eight-shot romp at the PGA Championship firmly reestablished his credentials as the next great golfer.
