Tiger Woods and Tom Brady are two giants in their respective fields. Both professionals have a huge fanbase and courtesy of the same, they enjoy endorsing several brands and sponsorship deals with some big companies around the globe. Moreover, recently, the NFL star received a signing from FOX Sports after his retirement, which will see the dynamics of his net worth change massively. Hence, golf fans wonder now if Tiger will also receive such a mammoth deal when he retires?
Brady is probably one of the best quarterbacks of all time and has received a deal for 10-years supposedly worth $375 million with the media giants after his retirement. On Tuesday, the CEO of FOX announced the deal with Tom and that he will be the number one game analyst when he chooses to retire. Given Tiger’s career and reach, it may be fair to expect him to receive such a mammoth deal upon his retirement as well.

Apart from his history of joining broadcasting shows during events, Woods’ popularity is immense; what he has done for the game is unprecedented and for the same reason, every broadcasting partner would want to have the 15-time major championship winner on their panel.
If it does happen after his retirement, it won’t be the only time another big giant in the market signed Tiger. The former World No. 1 already has signings with big companies like Nike, Rolex, Bridgestone, and various other companies. However, the big question still remains: will he choose the road that Brady has opted for?
I doubt Tiger will ever call golf down the road but if he did I would imagine he would be in for a contract of this magnitude lol https://t.co/xQ1dIpXd69

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Tiger already has a net worth of $800 million and can strengthen it even more if he gets a similar deal. It will also cement his earnings during his retirement, and by working as an analyst or covering events, he can still stay connected with the sport. However, only time will tell if he receives the offer and if he will decide to acknowledge such a prospect or not.
How did Tiger Woods play at the 2022 Masters?
The 82-time PGA Tour winner made a solid comeback to competitive golf at the 2022 Masters. Woods was playing his first official event since the 2020 Masters but did not show any rustiness in his game. He ended the event with an overall score of 13-over-par. As a result, Woods finished in solo 47th position. Tiger carded a final round of six-over-par, 78 to finish inside the top 50 on the leaderboard.
His final round included one birdie and three bogeys on the opening nine holes; Woods moved out in two-over-par, 38. He made two bogeys and one double-bogey on the back nine to end his Masters campaign. Now, with the PGA Championship starting next week, fans are looking forward to seeing Woods play at the event and head back to winning ways.
