Dustin Johnson Net Worth Surpasses $107 Million

Dustin Johnson has been one of the best golfers in the world for over a decade now. He has won almost everything there is to win in golf, as well as being the third highest earning player in PGA Tour history behind Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

Thus, it is clear that ‘DJ’ is one extremely wealthy man. Here at SportsLens we have decided to take an in-depth look at Dustin Johnson’s net worth, career earnings, and endorsement deals.

According to Forbes, Dustin Johnson’s net worth is estimated to be in the region of $107 million as of today.

The 39-year-old is worth an absolute fortune and is one of the biggest names in the sport of golf. The South Carolina man has won multiple tournaments all around the world since turning pro back in 2007, including 31 wins overall and 24 on the PGA Tour.

Forbes now estimates his net worth to be at least $107 million, based on his lifetime earnings. Johnson has had an outstanding career so far and will continue to earn millions between now and the end of his career.

Since winning his maiden PGA Tour tournament back in October 2008, Johnson has earned hundreds of millions of dollars. More about DJ’s career earnings later in this article.

Johnson’s net worth has also been heavily enhanced through ventures off the golf course. His other main earners off the course come through his various endorsements. Again, more on that later on.

The career of Dustin Johnson has been an incredibly successful one thus far, and another major win this year would further solidify him as one of the greatest golfers of all time by becoming a three-time major champion.

Ever since Dustin Johnson turned professional, he has had a meteoric rise to the top of the sport. His first win came back in 2008, his first of 31 career victories and 24 PGA Tour titles. Not only that but ‘DJ’ has also won in Europe on numerous occasions, as well as on the LIV Golf tour three times.

He is of course now well down the Official World Golf Rankings now due to playing on LIV, meaning he can’t accumulate any official ranking points. However, having moved to LIV Golf in 2022, ‘DJ’ has seen his career earnings catapult enormously.

Having moved to the LIV Golf League, Johnson earned a mouth-watering $97 million for 2022 alone. This came from a reported $68 million on-course and $29 million off-course. Such was the amount of money earned after joining LIV, the American ranked as the fifth-highest-paid athlete in the world.

Prior to joining LIV Golf, Johnson was also an extremely successful member of the PGA Tour and secured $75 million in career earnings. This puts him at number three only behind Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson on the PGA Tour’s career money list (source: Spotrac).

The career earnings don’t stop there though for the 1984-born golfing juggernaut. Combining both his LIV Golf earnings and his other career earnings, Johnson’s career earnings in total equates to around $220 million.

The majority of this has come from LIV, having been paid a lump sum on top of his on-course earnings too. But the Florida resident also made $75 million before that from the PGA Tour and unofficial pay-outs (sources: Spotrac & Golf Monthly).

Johnson’s most successful year to date in terms of career earnings was of course 2022 when he defected to the Saudi-backed LIV Golf League. Johnson’s best year in terms of earnings on the PGA Tour was back in 2020. ‘DJ’ earned somewhere in the region of $20.8 million that year.

This comes as no surprise as he won The Masters, as well as finishing second in the PGA Championship and sixth in the US Open. ‘Dusty’ has dominated the world of golf for years, holding the world number one spot for 135 weeks from February 2017.

In 2020, he also claimed a $15m bonus for winning the FedEx Cup. More about Johnson’s off-the-course earnings next.

Dustin Johnson Endorsement & Sponsorship Deals

Another reason that Dustin Johnson has a net worth of $107 million+ and has earned upward of $220 million in his career is due to the fact he has various sponsors.

‘DJ’ is heavily endorsed by several huge global companies and is paid millions each year to promote their brand. The former long-reigning world number one is one of TaylorMade’s main golfers, alongside the likes of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, and Collin Morikawa.

In fact, in 2021, Johnson signed a contract extension with TaylorMade, continuing the 14-year relationship they have had together. Johnson in turn plays a full bag of TaylorMade clubs, whilst also using a TaylorMade ball and bag.

According to Golf Monthly, Johnson also has sponsorship partnerships with BodyArmor, Hublot, NetJets, and Perfect Practice.

It hasn’t been all sunshine and rainbows for ‘Dusty’ though in terms of sponsors. Due to his move to LIV Golf, his sponsors have reduced significantly. RBC dropped Johnson from their payroll when he defected to the Saudi-backed golf league, as did Royal Bank of Canada.

However, the biggest news was that Adidas parted company with Johnson just two months ago after a 15-year relationship together. This is what was said about the split between Adidas and Dustin Johnson:

“We’ve mutually agreed to part ways with long-time Adidas athlete, Dustin Johnson,” Adidas Golf president Jeff Lienhart said in a statement to ESPN.

“For more than 15 years, Dustin has been a great ambassador for the Adidas brand. We’ve had a front-row seat to see him win multiple major championships, ascend to the No. 1 ranking, and cement himself as one of the best golfers in history  – all while wearing the 3-Stripes. We wish Dustin nothing but success moving forward.”

All in all, Dustin Johnson reportedly earns in excess of $11 million each year from endorsement deals (source: Sportskeeda). All of these sponsors, along with his earnings on the golf course are all huge factors in the growth of DJ’s net worth.
