Golf Icon Tiger Woods In On Track To Gain?

Looks like Tiger Woods is set to break another record:

Golf icon Tiger Woods in on track to gain the illustrious distinction of becoming the world’s first athlete billionaire. Woods, who won the U.S. Open while playing with a wounded knee last month, could reach $1 billion in career earnings by 2010, according to reports.

“It will be an unprecedented occurrence,” said an article in Forbes’ Wednesday edition. “There are plenty of billionaires who have excelled at sports like Switzerland’s richest man and champion sailor Ernesto Bertarelli. But there are no billionaires who accumulated their fortune by playing sports.”
