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.
The house is good for his job, too. It's right next to the PGA National golf course and there's a workout room.
The tabloids in the U.K. are all over him. They once reported that he bought a $US2 million Bugatti, which he called 'bollocks.'
But then, all of a sudden, he broke it off in May of 2014. They had already sent out wedding invitations.
Despite the break-up, Rory has been on fire on the course. He won $US1.66 million at the British Open
His dad won $US170,000 too. When Rory was 15 his dad placed a bet that he would win the Open before he turned 25.
