William is one to watch

A Stranraer golfer has received a limited-edition Boss watch after scoring a hole-in-one during a recent competition at his golf club.

William Lightbody, 60, scored his ace on the 138-yard, par-three 11th at Portpatrick Dunskey, 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 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. And with nearly 4000 holes-in-one recorded annually, Boss Watches could feasibly be giving away £1 million worth 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 will be eligible. Currently, more than 1800 clubs use the website.
