It’s every golfer’s dream to hit a hole-in-one and that dream became reality for Bellshill businessman Tommy Boylen.

Tommy (44) was taking part in a competition at Bellshill Golf Club where he is a member and walked away with a limited edition BOSS watch in recognition of his achievement.

The dream ace stroke came at the 229 yard par three fifth hole.

Tommy who has a 22 handicap, said: “The hole itself is recognised widely as one of the hardest par threes in the area.

“I hit the ball with my driver and watched it sharping from left to right towards the hole and then found it sitting at the bottom of the cup when I reached the pin.”

Tommy concedes it was his best stroke of the day as he didn’t feature among the competition winners. His reward was membership of the BOSS Watches H1 Club and the specially commissioned commemorative timepiece.
