NEW FOUNDER, PAR­SONS XTREME GOLF

Na­tion­al­ity: Amer­i­can Dis­rup­tion: It is Par­sons’ thing. It al­ways has been.

He knows tech­nol­ogy: The Har­ley David­son-rid­ing en­tre­pre­neur sold his startup com­pany, Par­sons Tech­nol­ogy, for $64 mil­lion at the age of 43 and then set up GoDaddy, one of the first in­ter­net site builders. He has since turned his at­ten­tion to golf, hav­ing launched his PXG club line and us­ing his huge wal­let to lure a host of Tour play­ers to use them, in­clud­ing Zach John­son and Billy Horschel.

Money talks: PXG clubs come with a big price tag, sup­ported by some equally star­tling claims for their qual­ity from the owner. Money cer­tainly talks, and Par­sons has a great deal of it.
