Even though the Masters Tournaments has ended on Sunday, the hype is still here. Thanks to this event, lots of people have turned their eyes to the world of professional golf, including the ones who used to hate it before.
Before the Masters Tournaments started, there was news from the legend named Tiger Wood. He decided not to participate in the event because he was still recovering from a near deadly car accident. Two months ago, the legend had an accident in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. He hit the tree while driving and his car flipped. Thankfully, people took him to the hospital immediately and he got a leg surgery. This one was not his first injury as he had one on his back before.
The absence of the legend called Tiger Wood was actually a good chance for the rookies to show their skill and to make the history. One of the most favorite that comes from the United States was named Xander Schauffele, the young blood from San Diego. The man might still be considered young, but he has already achieved a lot as a golfer, including money. So, what is his net worth?

In the same year, he signed a contract with the huge apparel and footwear company called Adidas. In addition to these, he also signed a contract with AON.
