With Rory taking time out from golf by watching some whiter than white tennis at sunny Wimbledon. Chin wagging with minted Murray and big apple McEnroe. One of the Beeb’s commentators uttered that Maria Sharopova is the highest paid female athlete, raking in a cool 25 million pounds per year. Granted she is six foot, blonde, cute lookin and won Wimbledon at the tender age of 17. It’s understandable that makers of sports apparel, shoes, watches, perfumes, shampoos etc would pay handsomely for her endorsement. My personal favourite at this year’s championship is Bulgarian Pironkova. Though she has just been knocked out by another ‘ova’.
Anyway, back to golf, all this got me wondering who’s the best female golfer and how much does she earn? I’ve read stories that Michelle Wie was worth 10 million dollars with sponsorship deals from Nike, and that was before she’d even won a tournament. Granted Annika Sorenstam earned a packet, but she did win several majors and had that Scandinavian appeal. Taiwan’s Yani Tseng is currently the best female golfer, but to earn the really big bucks does Tseng have the ‘eye candy’ to go with the undoubted talent?
