Former world number one Tiger Woods becomes the first golfer to earn $100m in career prize money following his third-place finish at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Former world number one Tiger Woods has become the first golfer to earn $100m (£63m) in career prize money.

The 36-year-old surpassed the landmark figure when he was awarded $544,000 (£342,000) for finishing third in yesterday's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Woods's total career earnings now stand at $100.35m, which is over 50% more than Phil Mickelson, who is second on the money board with $66.8m, (£42m) has earned.

Woods has 74 PGA Tour wins to his name, eight fewer than all-time record holder Sam Snead.
