Golfer scores hole-in-one at Shirley Golf Club

Stewart Almond was rewarded with a limited-edition BOSS watch after he became the latest person to score the elusive hole-in-one at Shirley Golf Club.

One Solihull golfer proved he was the boss after scoring a ‘Holy Grail’ hole-in-one in a club competition in Shirley.

Stewart Almond was rewarded with a limited-edition BOSS watch after he became the latest person to score the elusive hole-in-one at Shirley Golf Club.

The 59 year-old was presented with the specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece after recording his impressive shot on HowDidiDo.co.uk, a social network for golfers.

Stephen Brydon, commercial director for MGS Distribution, the official licenced UK distributor for BOSS Watches, said: “Congratulations to Stewart on achieving golf’s Holy Grail of a hole-in-one.

“To the majority of amateur golfers, recording a hole-in-one will be the most memorable thing they achieve in golf – a once-in-a-lifetime experience probably – and we want to ensure they have much better memories than merely a dent in their bank balance after buying drinks in the clubhouse.”

The luxury German brand has pledged to reward club golfers with the watch for every hole-in-one recorded during a club competition in 2014 after giving away £600,000-worth of limited-edition mementos in 2013.

Mr Brydon added: “We also hope it might add a frisson of extra excitement to club competitions for golfers who may not be in with a chance of winning the event, for they know that every time they stand on the tee on a par-three, they are just one shot away from winning a stunning timepiece.”

Mr Almond scored with a seven-iron ace on the 147-yard, par-three third at his club.
