No Major Loss for Tiger

At the US Masters in 1997, the world of golf changed forever. Tiger Woods took Augusta by storm to lift the first of his to date 14 major trophies. Having turned pro only seven months previously, Woods chalked up a Masters record -18, with the nearest challenger 12 shots asunder. His prize money of 486,000 dollars went in the kitty that, according to Forbes, grew to 26 million by the end of year.

In 2002, Tiger reached the top of the sport rich-list and remained there for ten years consecutively. Although his major winning streak came to an end in 2009 – the same year the infidelity scandal broke – he remained the worlds’ highest earning sports person until 2012, when he slipped to third. Plagued by injuries and a general lack of form, the Woods has failed to make an impact where it matters for over eight years now, but as the infographic below shows, this hasn’t had a major effect on his earnings.

While his income has naturally taken a dip since the glory days, the former world number one has still managed to keep the money flowing in. Despite having not won a tour event since 2013, Woods earned a reported 45 million dollars last year. As a professional sports person though, this is unlikely to provide him with much solace. While he is out of this year’s Masters through injury, it would be quite a story if he could turn it all around and bag that fifteenth major before he finally calls it a day.

Night and Day at Leicester City

By: Martin Armstrong

The football world, myself included, reacted with anger and dismay in February as Claudio Ranieri, manager of reigning Premier League champions Leicester City, was sacked. Despite the club being in the midst of a major drop in form, the board’s decision was seen by most as being very cynical. As the well-worn saying goes though, football is a results business.

Since the appointment of Craig Shakespeare, the Foxes have won every game, scoring 13 goals along the way. During the last five Premier League games under Ranieri, the champions lost every match and didn’t manage to find the net at all. Ranieri will remain in the hearts of Leicester fans forever for what he achieved last season, but what matters most in the here and now is avoiding relegation and, well, maybe winning the Champions League

This chart shows the ten most recent Premier League results of Leicester City as of 5 April 2017.
