A young Mansfield golfer has received a limited-edition BOSS watch after scoring a hole-in-one during a recent competition at his club.

Tom Gammon (15), scored his ace on the 165-yard, par-three 15th at Rufford Park Golf Club.

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 15th April and 31st October 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 licenced UK distributor for BOSS Watches, said: “Congratulations to Tom 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, only available to golfers who record a hole-in-one, so they are truly exclusive and will provide a constant reminder of the sight of their ball popping into the hole.”
