Two Laois golfers have received limited-edition BOSS watches after scoring holes-in-one during competitions at their respective clubs.
Michael Breen, 72, scored his ace on the 133-yard, par-three 14th at his club, Abbeyleix, and the 23-handicapper was rewarded with membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club and a specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece.
Meanwhile Portlaoise golfer ans six-handicapper Dan Scully, 56, scored his ace on the 195-yard, par-three 14th at his club, Mountrath.
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 feasibly be giving away £1m-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.
