It shouldn’t come as a surprise to know that there’s a lot of incorrect information on the Internet and that you should take everything you read on there with a grain lump of salt. Well, not everything, because you can always trust us big-J Journos here at The Loop. Obviously.
Anyway, in particular, it turns out those popular “net worth” searches aren’t very accurate. Shocking, right? In fact, they can be completely inaccurate as shown by one former PGA Tour pro turned swing coach.
Bradley Hughes works with some great golfers, most notably turning Brendon Todd’s career around a couple years ago. And although we’re guessing he’s well-compensated for his work, he is definitely not a billionaire. He made $2.1 million during his PGA Tour career (more around the world for this member of the inaugural International Presidents Cup team, but still) and Todd has earned $11.6 million. Again, that’s million with an “M,” not billion with a “B.”
If you were doing a random Google search, however, you’d get a slightly different impression of Hughes. Have a look:
LOL $2.4 BILLION. That’s what Tiger Woods and Michael Jordan are worth. COMBINED. Although, again, we’re using the same shoddy Internet info to compute that so who knows. But you get the point, Bradley Hughes is definitely not worth anything…
