Tony Finau Sued for $16 Million by Former Business Associate
PGA Tour star Tony Finau is being sued for over $16 million by former business associate Molonai Hola, according to a report from Deseret News.
According to the lawsuit, Hola, who owns Icon Sports, began financing Finau and his younger brother during the early part of his career.
The payments included mortgage, medical insurance, a new car and other living expenses for a year.
According to the lawsuit, those expenses totaled more than $592,000 over several years.
Hola says that he had an agreement with the family to be paid back by the family, but has not yet been done so.
Hola also claims that he was promised 20% of future professional earnings for both Tony and his brother.
“We are aware of the matter and have the utmost faith in the legal process. We will not be making further comment at this time,” Finau’s agent, Chris Armstrong, reportedly said in a statement, according to Golf Channel.
During his career so far, Finau has mad over $20 million between the Korn Ferry and PGA Tour.
The majority of those earnings have come since 2015.
Finau has one career win, 2016, and has made at least $2.9 million in on-course earnings for each of the last four seasons.
He is currently ranked 14th in the world.
