(AP Photo/Michael Dwyer) (Newser) – Things appear to be back on the upswing for Tiger Woods: Yesterday, he became the first golfer to make more than $100 million in US PGA Tour winnings over the course of a career. He crossed that line after bringing home $544,000 by finishing third at the Deutsche Bank Championship, Bloomberg reports. Behind him is a distant second, Vijay Singh at $66.79 million. Earlier this year, Woods finally achieved a PGA Tour victory after a very long dry spell; more recently, he broke Jack Nicklaus' record for tour victories.
