A golfer from Whatton who scored a hole-in-one in a recent club competition was rewarded with a limited edition BOSS watch in recognition of his achievement.

Gary Bryan, 59, aced with a seven iron on the 156-yard, par three 17th at Rutland County Golf Club. Sixteen handicap Gary was rewarded with membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club and a specially-commissioned commemorative timepiece.

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. Currently, more than 1,800 clubs use the website.

Stephen Brydon, commercial director for MGS Distribution, the official licenced UK distributor for BOSS Watches, said: “Congratulations to Gary 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.”
