Even though Tiger Woods would not be playing at Torrey Pines for the fourth consecutive year, his legend would endure. The 82-time member of the PGA Tour has participated in the competition seventeen times, winning seven of them. Interestingly, he had a four-year run once.

Among the many honors the GOAT has received, this record is just one in a long list. How much money has the 15-time major champion golfer received from his numerous appearances at the Famers Insurance Open, and how much was his biggest payout from that particular event?

Tiger Woods made his public debut in 1996. In 1998, he made his debut at the Farmers Insurance Open, formerly known as the Buick Invitational. A year following his historic Masters triumph, Woods earned $109,000 in prize money by finishing third at Torrey Pines.

The next season then arrived. Recall that this is Woods at his peak, as he improved on his finish from the previous year to win the competition and collect $486,000. Though it was his first Buick Invitational triumph, in a very real sense, it marked the beginning of something nobody could have predicted. Woods had the following record at the South Courses from 2000 to 2002: T2-T4-T5.

He made more than $100,000 in each of the three editions. However, the breakthrough occurred once more in 2003 when the 82-time champion took home $810,000. As if his two wins and four top-5 placings over the course of six editions weren’t enough, in 2004 he recorded another top-10 result. Thus, he had six wins, five top-10 performances, and had not missed a cut in his previous eleven outings.

However, the Woods phenomenon went viral in 2005. No one could take the Buick Invitational away from Woods for four years in a row, from 2005 to 2008. He demonstrated his excellence at Torrey Pines year after year. His total earnings from all of his successes came to $3.654 million. Woods had a fantastic run, but it took him four years to receive his biggest Farmers Insurance Open payday.

Following an incredible run at the Farmer Insurance Open, Woods was unable to compete in the following two events (2009 and 2010). The GOAT was leading the way through all of the controversy that surrounding his career at that time. In 2010, he took an unspecified sabbatical. But Tiger Woods did make a reappearance.

Recovering from setbacks has always been a feature of his existence. However, he was unable to duplicate the earlier records. With his second-lowest prize money of $18,096 from the Farmers Insurance Open, Woods finished T44th on the leaderboard. After rediscovering his appeal, he entered the Torrey Pines to win the event once more in 2012 after missing it the previous year.

While most people did not think Tiger Woods would win in 2013, Woods was four shots ahead of Josh Teater and Brandt Snedeker. In addition, this was his 75th career PGA Tour victory. At Torrey Pines, he took home his greatest prize of $1.098 million.

He finished in the top 20 three times, missed the cut once, and missed the event five times in the next ten editions. Overall, Tiger Woods made $7,177,379 from his seven wins. Though it may not seem like much in relation to the billionaire’s career, the sum won from a single title over time is nevertheless enormous.
