Tiger Woods is a very rich man who a little got richer after shooting a 1-under 71 on Sunday to win the 2013 WGC-Cadillac Championship. Out of an $8.75 million purse, Woods took home approximately $1.44 million in prize money. For finishing in second place by two strokes, Steve Stricker took home nearly $870,000.
Both golfers moved into the Top 5 among the 2013 money leaders. Woods is now in second place, approximately $190,000 behind leader Brandt Snedeker. Stricker jumped eight spots to move into fourth place behind Matt Kuchar.
Because they finished in four-way tie for third place, Adam Scott, Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson and Graeme McDowell earned the average of the prize money that would have been given to the outright third, fourth, fifth and sixth place finishers, which came out to just over $390,000.

1) Tiger Woods - $1,441,176.47
