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

Paul Teviotdale (37) got his ace on the 204-yard, par-three 16th at Arbroath Links, and the plus-one 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 4,000 holes-in-one recorded annually, BOSS Watches could 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 1,800 clubs use the website.

Stephen Brydon, commercial director for MGS Distribution, the official licenced UK distributor for BOSS Watches, said: “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.”
