Woods first appeared on the professional circuit in 1996, but it wasn’t the first time he’d been in the limelight. He came to television at the age of two, where he showed off his putting skills on the Mike Douglas show.

“GOAT”, as he is often called, signed his first contract worth $40 million over five years. In 2001, Nike renewed his contract at 100 million dollars for 5 years, then at 20-40 million dollars per year for an 8-year contract in 2006. Since 1996, the two have never separated, even when Nike stopped making golf equipment in 2016. Tiger is not the only winner in his contract as Nike has also achieved huge brand value over the past 20 years.
