Every golf fan knows that Tiger Woods has been a very dominant golfer for most of his golf career. Perhaps the most dominant Tiger Woods has ever been for one golf tournament, though, is at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.

Since the WGC Bridgestone Invitational replaced the World Series of Golf in 1999 (the tournament was called the WGC NEC Invitational from 1999-2005), Tiger Woods has won an incredible $11.1 million playing in just this one tournament.

Here's a breakdown of the prize money Tiger Woods has won at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational since the tournament began in 1999.

Prize money won by Tiger Woods at WGC Bridgestone Invitational year by year

1999 - Won $1 million as the winner

2000 - Won $1 million as the winner

2001 - Won $1 million as the winner

2002 - $215,000 for 4th place

2003 - $235,000 tie for 4th place

2004 - $552,500 - tie for 2nd place

2005 - Won $1.3 million as the winner

2006 - Won $1.3 million as the winner

2007 - Won $1.35 million as the winner

2008 - DNP

2009 - Won $1.4 million as the winner

2010 - $35,875 tie for 78th

2011 - $58,500 tie for 37th

2012 - $128,750 tie for 8th

2013 - Won $1.5 million as the winner

Adding up all that prize money comes to $11,075,625, or $11.1 million if we round off. Most of that money came from the record eight times Tiger won the tournament, as he collected $9.85 million for his eight wins combined.

Any way you want to slice the money up, Tiger Woods has completely dominated this tournament. He's won it eight of the 14 times he's played in it. Tiger Woods has won an average of $793,000 each time he's played in the WGC Bridgestone Invitational.

Granted, it is an invitational tournament so Tiger Woods only had to compete against roughly 80 different players each year at the WGC Bridgestone Invitational vs the usual 150 golfers for most PGA events, but for one golfer to win $11.1 million playing in just one tournament a total of 14 times is pretty incredible.
