Golfers Who Have Made the Most Money Without Winning

By Ryan Watson


Golf, like any sport, will always remember its winners best. But the sad truth is that for most of us we won’t see our names up in the lights as we grasp an oversized trophy or try on our new green jacket. Fortunately there are some pros who give us hope, players that earned millions of dollars while playing good golf but never quite making the breakthrough. The following are the richest golfers to never win on the PGA Tour.
