Time is right for Alex’s hole-in-one

A Whitley Bay golfer proved the time was right to hit a hole-in-one at his local club.

Alex Miller, 24, scored his ace on the 155-yard, par three ninth at Whitley Bay Golf Club.

And the eight-handicapper was rewarded with a limited-edition BOSS watch, with the German company giving away more specially-commissioned, commemorative timepieces.

Stephen Brydon, commercial director for MGS Distribution, the official licenced UK distributor for BOSS Watches, said: “Congratulations to Alex on achieving golf’s Holy Grail of a hole-in-one.

“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.”
