Everyone knows that pro golfers make a ridiculously good living. Endorsement deals alone can afford them lavish lifestyles with mansions and sports cars. Inside the ropes, cash is also plentiful; the winner's share this season surpassed $1 million at all but four official Tour events.

So just how well are the pros making out?

Golfers of course have longer career primes than their tennis counterparts. This year on the Champions tour, Bernhard Langer, age 60, earned $3.6 million in prize money, which would rank fourth on the men's tennis tour.

The story is different for women golfers. Only 16 players on the LPGA Tour crossed the $1 million mark this year, while 37 female tennis players cracked seven figures.

'Justice League' Is Reportedly Losing A Super Amount Of Money For Warner Bros. .
For most movies, a $96 million opening weekend would be a cause for celebration. That’s more money than John Wick: Chapter Two — a great film that you should watch with the entire family this holiday weekend — made in its entire run. But Justice League isn’t most movies. It’s DC’s Avengers, the long-awaited team-up of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash, and, uh, Cyborg, I guess. That $96 million is less than Batman vs. Superman‘s $160 million, Suicide Squad‘s $133 million, and Wonder Woman‘s $103 million, and a fraction of the film’s reported $300 million budget. (And that doesn’t even include the rumored $150 million in global marketing.) Barring an unlikely strong word-of-mouth boost, Forbes predictsJustice League will bring in $235 million domestically, with another $400 million internationally. That’s $635 million worldwide, which would make Justice League the “lowest-grossing movie among the five DCEU releases so far.” (Losing to Jared Leto? That’s gotta sting.) Yes, $635 million is more than the $300 million budget and $150 million marketing, but there are other costs: If we add up theatrical rentals with global home entertainment, television, and fees, we get to a net revenue figure of $575 million going to Warner Bros.
