    6. Phil Mickelson

    The number 2 golfer in the world is an interesting one. Phil Mickelson swings left-handed even though he's otherwise right-handed. And that swing, combined with a lucrative Callaway deal, means "Lefty" is worth $40 million a year.

    5. LeBron James

    Being MVP in the NBA means you command $40 million a year. And it's rumored LeBron James will search for an even bigger market next season.

    4. David Beckham

    So he's not the best player in the world, but he's definitely better than most and is handsdown the most famous of them all. Everyone wants a piece of Becks, and it comes at a price - $42 million to be exact.

    3. Kimi Raikkonen

    Kimi Raikkonen has had a relatively tough year. He placed third in the Formula 1 World Championships in 2008 and is currently in tenth place for 2009. But don't feel too bad for the guy. He's still the top paid F1 driver and made $45 million last year.

    1. Tiger Woods

    Order a half iced tea/half lemonade and you're drinking an Arnold Palmer. Order a half iced tea/half pink lemonade and you're drinking a Tiger Woods. Maybe not the manliest drink to be dubbed after you, but we doubt Tiger minds. At 13 years and $900 million and counting, Tiger is poised to be the first athlete to earn a billion dollars during a career. Making his way toward that end, he made $110 million in the last year.
