Ket­tles’ hot shot earns him handy re­ward

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS -

THE time was right for a Bolling­ton golfer when he scored a hole-in-one dur­ing a re­cent club com­pe­ti­tion to be re­warded with a limited-edi­tion BOSS watch as recog­ni­tion for the achieve­ment.

Ian Ket­tles, 60, scored his ace on the 120-yard, par-three 15th at Cavendish Golf Club, and the 15-hand­i­cap­per was re­warded with mem­ber­ship of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club 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-in­one recorded dur­ing a club com­pe­ti­tion in 2014 af­ter giv­ing away £600,000-worth of limited-edi­tion me­men­tos in 2013 – and Ket­tles 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.

Stephen Bry­don, com­mer­cial direc­tor for MGS Dis­tri­bu­tion, the of­fi­cial li­cenced UK dis­trib­u­tor for BOSS Watches, said: “Con­grat­u­la­tions to Ian 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 exclusive BOSS watch is avail­able only to golfers who record a hole-in-one. It will pro­vide a con­stant re­minder of the achieve­ment and also help to en­sure they’re never late for a tee-time again.

“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.”
