A Lynn golfer will have no excuse for missing his next tee-time after winning a limited-edition BOSS watch for achieving a hole-in-one.
David Jarvis (47) scored his ace on the 195-yard, par-three 12th at Lynn GC, and the 13-handicapper was rewarded with membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1Club and a specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece.
He said: “I’d stayed up very late the night before so I wasn’t feeling great and wasn’t playing any good either. Last to tee off, I hit a three-wood – sun in face – and couldn’t see it land.
“A chap in front started punching the air and I turned to my partners to say ‘crikey, I must have hit him’. As we walked up to the green, we could see the group in front clapping and when we got to hole I realised it was in.
“Massive cheers and handshakes with all the groups around followed and plenty of photos. I suddenly felt a lot better … until I got to the 19th hole.”
The luxury German brand has once again pledged to reward club golfers with an exclusive watch for every hole-in-one recorded during a club competition in 2015, after giving away more than £1m-worth of limited-edition timepieces since its launch in 2013 – and Jarvis is among the latest to achieve the feat 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 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: “Well done to David for accomplishing one of golf’s most elusive feats.
“We also hope it might lift the spirits of amateur golfers during club competitions who may not be in with a chance of winning the event, but can still feel excitement every time they play a par three, knowing they are just one shot away from winning an exquisite timepiece.”
In addition to the watch, Jarvis joins more than 7,000 members in the BOSS Watches H1Club which offers access to exclusive benefits and merchandise.
