Wylie, 57, will host the British Masters golf tournament at his Close House course in the Tyne Valley in September. The Hawick-born entrepreneur co-founded the Sage software business in Newcastle upon Tyne, selling a chunk of his stake for £116.5m when he left in 2003. He poured £25m into setting up IT company Technology Services Group and his remaining Sage shares should have netted him £80m. He also has a finance house and racehorses.
