Tony Finau enjoyed his best year to date in 2022, with the American picking up three PGA Tour titles in just a four month period. Before then, he had only secured two titles, with a five-year winless run occurring between 2016 and 2021.
Because of his excellent run of form, Finau has found his name leaping into the top 30 of the PGA Tour's career money list, amassing almost $35 million in prize money. Here, we take a look at his net worth.
As previously mentioned, Finau suffered a five year trophy drought but, during that time, he picked up 40 top 10s which, thanks to the amount of money on offer on the PGA Tour, delivered him millions of dollars.
His biggest paycheck to date came at his Northern Trust victory in 2021, with Finau claiming the winner’s share of the purse at $1,710,000. Both his opening wins on the PGA Tour came via playoffs, with the American involved in five playoffs in all, losing the other three.
Notably, he was in a playoff for the 2018 WGC-HSBC Champions. In this, he parred the first extra hole and lost to Xander Schauffele who made a birdie. Schauffele went away with $1,700,000, while Finau picked up $1,072,000 for his efforts. His most successful season to date came in 2021-22, where he amassed $6.1 million.
Away from his tournament winnings, Finau signed a multi-year sponsorship deal with Aptive Environmental, a pest control company in March 2021. As part of the deal, the company would support Finau’s charity, the Tony Finau Foundation.
The aim of the foundation is “to empower and inspire youth and their families to discover, develop, and achieve the best of their gifts and talents through the game of golf, educational funding, and core family values”.
Finau also has long-standing sponsorships with Nike and Ping, with the American signing with Nike in 2016 alongside Brooks Koepka and 12 other players. Two years later, in 2018, he confirmed a multi-year deal with Ping, which requires him to use a Ping staff bag and play a minimum of 11 of their clubs.
The last sponsor of Finau's is Qualtrics, who are seen on his golf bag alongside his foundation's logo. The deal occurred in January 2019, with the experience management company based in the American's home state of Utah. The exact financial details of all these sponsorships are yet to be confirmed.

In September 2020, according to a report from Deseret News (opens in new tab), Finau was being sued by former business associate Molonai Hola. Hola’s claim was that he had funded Finau and his brother Gipper in the early stages of their professional career.
The lawsuit says that those expenses totalled more than $592,000. It also says that the family had promised to pay him back and also to give him 20% of the future winnings. The lawsuit was for $16 million, a sum which included interest payments and compensatory damages. As far as we know, this is still ongoing.

After freelancing for Golf Monthly and The PGA for 18 months, he was offered a full-time position at the company in October 2022 and continues to cover weekend news and social media, as well as help look after Golf Monthly’s many buyers’ guides and equipment reviews.
Taking up the game when he was just seven years of age, Matt made it into his county squad just a year later and continues to play the game at a high standard, with a handicap of around 2-4. To date, his best round came in 2016, where he shot a six-under-par 66 having been seven-under through nine holes. He currently plays at Witney Lakes in Oxfordshire and his favourite player is Rory McIlroy, despite nearly being struck by his second shot at the 17th during the 2015 BMW PGA Championship.
