Earls Colne golfer Michael Burke, will have no excuse for missing his next tee-time after winning a limited-edition watch for achieving a hole-in-one.
Burke, 77, scored his ace on the 159-yard, par-three fifth at Gosfield Lake GC, and the 20-handicapper was rewarded with membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1Club and a specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece.
The luxury German brand is rewarding club golfers with an exclusive watch for every hole-in-one recorded during a club competition in 2015. 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 licenced UK distributor for BOSS Watches, said: “Well done to Michael for accomplishing one of golf’s most elusive feats. We want to ensure amateur golfers have something tangible by which to remember the day, other than an expensive bar bill.”
