With the fallen superstar currently in Augusta trying to piece his game together in time for the start of the Masters on Thursday, a report in the Daily Record claims to have lifted the lid on what the former world number one's total losses have been from the scandal.

The paper reports that Woods has lost 22m as a direct result of losing his deals with companies including Accenture Gatorade, AT&T Gillette and Tag Heuer. He's even had to start paying for his own cars after General Motors pulled the plug on an agreement which allowed him free use of their vehicles.

With Woods's divorce having cost him a further 60m, that makes a total of 82m, or US$132.3m.

And with Woods having reportedly slept with around 120 women, that means each notch on his bed post cost him $1.1m, or 680,000.

Despite the blow to his wallet, Woods's $90m-a-year income still makes him the highest-earning sportsman on the planet - despite now sitting a lowly seventh in golf's world rankings - and the only person from the world of sport to make the top 10 of Forbes magazine's highest-earning celebrities.
