RORY MCILROY: How Nike's $US200 Million Man Spends His Money

Rory McIlroy is well positioned to become one of the world’s highest-paid athletes for a long, long time.

At age 25, he has already won three of the four major championships and has a deal with Nike rumoured to be worth as much as $US200 million.

He also has the makings of a pretty fantastic lifestyle off the course, with a lavish house in Florida, a $US400,000 car, and much more.

He earned $US23.5 million last year, making him the 35th-highest-paid athlete in the world at age 25.
