LeBron James makes 16 million a year, but a golfer wins money depending on their position in an event, so it varies. But an average amount for the professional golfers is 6 million a year. Tiger Woods made 10 million in 2007 but only made 6 million last year.

So to sum it up, Basketball is a more reliable income because you earn a salary from your club, while in golf it all depends on your performance at each tournament. A golfer can potentially make more money than a basketballer, but only if they perform extremely well.
