This Entrepreneur Went From Caddie to Golf Apparel Icon
John Ashworth recognized a gap in the market -- transitional apparel to comfortably go from the links to a night out on the town.
Struggling as a pro-tour golf caddie, John Ashworth found himself low on cash and hungry for an opportunity to make golf his career. Ashworth landed in the sporting goods business and quickly recognized a gap in the market -- transitional apparel to comfortably go from the links to a night out on the town. More than 20 years later, Ashworth launched a new venture, Linksoul, focuses on golf- and surf-inspired apparel.
