Danny records “ace” on Captain’s Day

Yet another North-West Golf Club member has secured membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club following his “hole-in-one”on the Lisfannon Links recently.

Daniel Curran (51), registered his ace on the 165 yards par-three third hole at North-West during Mr. John McGinley’s Captain’s Day and, for his efforts the 15 handicapper also receives 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 this year.

And, with nearly 4,000 holes-in-one recorded annually, BOSS Watches could feasibly be giving away £1m-worth during 2013.

Fellow members at Lisfannon, Brian McCarroll and Gerry Coyle have already secured their exclusive new timepieces and 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.

Stephen Brydon, commercial director for MGS Distribution, said: “Congratulations to Daniel on what, to most of us, is a once-in-a-lifetime achievement.

““It also adds 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.”

In addition to the limited-edition watch, Curran is also awarded membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club which offers its members access to exclusive benefits and merchandise.

No extra registration is required to participate in the BOSS Watches promotion as all official club competitions are recorded on the HowDidiDo system, so holes-in-one will be noted and automatically ratified by the golfer’s club.
