While McIlroy and Spieth are two of golf’s most accomplished and well-known current pros, GOLF+’s newest investment group – led by Breyer Capital – also extends to 70-year-old Ben Crenshaw, a two-time Masters winner and one of golf’s most respected current course architects, as well as golf-obsessed stars from the NFL (Brady), NBA (Curry) and Major League Baseball (Trout). Other prominent investors include financier Jimmy Dunne, a very familiar name in golf circles, along with 1800contacts founder Jonathan Coon, former IBM CEO Sam Palmisano, Pennybacker Capital Founder/CEO Tim Berry, Kendra Scott CEO Tom Nolan, and Silicon Labs founder Nav Sooch.

How to Invest – David Rubenstein <> Jim Breyer Interview

Last summer, Jim was interviewed by his friend David Rubenstein for his audiobook How to Invest. Now the audiobook has been released. Jim’s segment can be found in Chapters 53 and 54.


“In 2005 Mark Zuckerburg was seeking venture capital for his then ten-person startup, Facebook. Almost every other venture fund passed, but Jim thought the company warranted a significant $11M investment ($10M from Accel and $1M from his own pocket). The result was one of the most successful venture investments of all time. Their stake was worth over 800 times their investment at the IPO in 2012…I came to know Jim as a fellow Board Member of the Tsinghua University Advisory Board for the School of Economics and Management and at the Harvard Corporation. In those board meetings, I could see firsthand Jim’s inquiring mind, his ability to see challenges not seen by others, and his willingness to propose solutions that were unusually perceptive. I could see clearly how Jim became one of the best Venture Capitalists and wish I knew him when he invested in Facebook in 2005. “
