Rory McIlroy led the field with more than $8 million in salary winnings this past year. Tiger Woods finished in a distant second place.

The 2012 PGA Tour season has wrapped up. After thousands of strokes and many tournaments played, 89 players received more than a million dollars for their efforts on the Tour this year. As for the money board leaders, Rory McIlroy led the pack with $8,047,952, which is quite impressive given he only turned 23 years old back in May.

Tiger Woods placed second on the money list after winning a little more than $6.1 million. This money does not include the numerous endorsements the world's former No. 1 player has. Brandt Snedeker won just under $5 million and finished in third, while Jason Dufner was right behind him with $4,869,304 in winnings. Bubba Watson, who came on strong to win The Masters in April, rounded out the top five in earnings with just over $4.6 million.

Zach Johnson placed sixth on the list with $4,494,004. Justin Rose ($4.29 million), Phil Mickelson ($4.20 million) and Hunter Mahan ($4.01 million) were the only other golfers to take home more than $4 million in earnings. Keegan Bradley completed the top 10 after earning $3,910,658 on the Tour.
