A Burnley golfer will have no excuse for missing his next tee-time after winning a limited-edition BOSS watch for achieving a hole-in-one.

Kevin Davies, 53, scored his ace on the 159-yard, par-three second at Burnley Golf Club.

He said: “I was playing in the second round of the Walmsey Cup, tied for 50th place after round one.

“I started with a solid four on the first hole, but then managed to hole the second – it took a few second to register, before the high-fives started.

“Another stroke of luck happened on the par-four sixth, where I holed my wedge for another eagle.

“I finished with a level-par round, climbing the leader board all the way to second place – one of my playing partners was my next-door neighbour on our first round playing together.”

And the four-handicapper – who achieved the feat using his seven-iron – was rewarded with membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1Club and a specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece.

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 £1.4m-worth of limited-edition timepieces since its launch in 2013 – and Davies 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.
