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

Paul Batchford (54), scored his ace on the 128-yard, par-three ninth at Kingsfield and the 24-handicapper 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 million-worth of limited edition timepieces since its launch in 2013.

Batchford 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 1800 clubs use the website.
