A PENARTH golfer has been rewarded with a limited-edition BOSS watch after scoring a hole-in-one during a recent club competition.
Tim Raikes, 42, scored his ace on the 131-yard, par three second at Glamorganshire GC, and the nine-handicapper, as well as receiving the specially commissioned, commemorative timepiece, wins membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club.
The luxury German brand has once again pledged to reward club golfers with an exclusive watch for every hole-in-one recorded during a club competition in 2014 after giving away £600,000-worth of limited-edition mementoes in 2013.
The scheme is open to any golfer whose club uses HowDidiDo - a free-to-use, web-based social network for golfers - and anybody playing in official club competitions is eligible.
Stephen Brydon, commercial director for MGS Distribution, the official licensed UK distributor for BOSS Watches, said: "Congratulations to Tim on achieving golf's holy grail of a hole-in-one.
"To the majority of amateur golfers, recording a hole-in-one will be the most memorable thing they achieve in golf - a once-in-a-lifetime experience probably - and we want to ensure they have much better memories than merely a dent in their bank balance after buying drinks in the clubhouse."
