A PENARTH golfer has been rewarded with a special watch in recognition of a hole-in-one during a recent club competition.

Maurice Beddard, aged 61, scored his ace on the 160-yard, par 3 seventh at the Glamorganshire club, and the six-handicapper was rewarded with membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club and a specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece.

The luxury German brand is rewarding club golfers with the watch for every hole-in-one recorded during a club competition in 2014 after giving away £600,000-worth of limited-edition mementos 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.

BOSS spokesman Stephen Brydon said: “Congratulations to Maurice 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.

“The exclusive BOSS watch will provide a constant reminder of the achievement."
