Timing is key for Kelso golfer

The time was right for Kelso golfer Stuart Hawker when he scored a hole-in-one during a recent club competition.

The 49-year-old scored his ace on the 173-yard, par-three 12th at Kelso GC, and the 12-handicapper was given a specially-commissioned timepiece in recognition of the feat.

Stephen Brydon, of MGS Distribution, distributor for BOSS Watches, said: “To most amateur golfers, a hole-in-one will be the most memorable thing they achieve in golf and we want them to have better memories than a dent in their bank balance after buying drinks in the clubhouse.”
