Golfer's watch for hole-in-one

AN East Aberthaw golfer has received a limited-edition BOSS watch after scoring a hole-in-one during a recent competition at his golf club.
Alan Sweeney, 56, scored his ace on the 188-yard, par 3 12th at Brynhill, Barry, and the 10-handicapper was rewarded with membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club and a specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece.
The luxury German brand has pledged to reward club golfers with an exclusive watch for every hole-in-one recorded during a club competition between April 15 and October 31 this year.
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 will be eligible.
Stephen Brydon, commercial director for MGS Distribution, the official licensed UK distributor for BOSS Watches, said: "Congratulations to Alan on what, to most of us, is a once-in-a-lifetime achievement.
"To the majority of amateur golfers, recording a hole-in-one will be the most memorable thing they achieve in golf - yet all many have to show for it is a dent in their bank balance after buying a round of drinks in the clubhouse.
"We aim to make it a lot more memorable for them by presenting them with an exclusive BOSS watch.
In addition to the limited-edition watch, Sweeney is also awarded membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club which offers its members access to exclusive benefits and merchandise.
