Charles Howell III has put together an impressive PGA Tour resume and has continually improved his game in the process. The 2019 season thus far has been a major success for Howell, who finds himself sitting inside the top-five of the FedExCup Standings. Beyond that, he’s posted multiple impressive results through the early stages and has built momentum prior to the PGA majors.
Howell’s success on the course this season has landed him inside the top-20 in career earnings while pushing him towards an impressive benchmark of $40 million in career earnings. Per the PGA Tour’s official site, “Chucky Three Sticks” has racked up a career winnings total of $37,876,794.
While the number is impressive, his finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the upcoming events beyond this could set him up to possibly make a leap even higher.
How Charles Howell’s Career Earnings Rank Against Top Names
