A Stonehaven golfer has received a limited-edition BOSS watch after scoring a hole-in-one during a recent competition.

Michael Campbell (31), pictured above, scored his ace on the 211-yard, par-three 18th at Stonehaven Golf Club, and the 14-handicapper was rewarded with membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club and a specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece.

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.

With nearly 4000 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 1800 clubs use the website.

Stephen Brydon, commercial director for MGS Distribution, the official licenced UK distributor for BOSS Watches, said: “Congratulations to Michael on what, to most of us, is a once-in-a-lifetime achievement.’’
