The time was right for a Hucknall golfer when he scored a hole-in-one during a competition at his local club.
For Harvey Bradbury’s feat earned him a limited-edition BOSS watch, worth hundreds of pounds.
Harvey (49) holed his ace on the 159-yard, par-three tenth at the Coxmoor course in Sutton-in-Ashfield, which is also the home club of leading professionals, Oliver Wilson and Greg Owen.
An eight-handicapper, Harvey duly qualified for one of BOSS’s specially-commissioned watches, as part of an exclusive reward scheme for club golfers.
The luxury German brand has pledged to hand over a timepiece to every hole-in-one recorded during a club competition in 2014 -- after giving away £600,000 worth of such mementos last year.
The scheme is open to any golfer whose club uses HowDidiDo, a free, web-based social network for golfers. Currently, more than 1,800 clubs use the website.
BOSS spokesman Stephen Brydon said: “Congratulations to Harvey on acheiving golf’s holy grail of a hole-in-one.
“To most amateur golfers, a hole-in-one is the most memorable thing they achieve in golf. So we want to ensure they have better memories than merely a dent in their bank balance after buying drinks in the clubhouse!
“The watches are a constant reminder of the achievement -- and also help to ensure the winning golfers are never late for a tee-time again!”
Harvey automatically becomes a member of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club, giving him access to benefits and merchandise.
