The Asian Swing allowed four players to cross milestones on the PGA Tour's career money list.

It starts with Tiger Woods, whose victory at the ZoZo Championship in Japan pushed him over US$120 million. That comes out to an average of US$95,603 for every round he has played as a pro.

Rory McIlroy won the HSBC Champions in China to become the 10th player to surpass the US$50 million mark. Sergio Garcia became the ninth player to top US$50 million, but only because he finished the final round before McIlroy.

With his tie for 17th in Japan, Paul Casey became the 38th player to surpass US$30 million in career earnings.

Jack Nicklaus, who played his final PGA Tour event at St. Andrews in the 2005 British Open, remains at US$5.7 million.
