Darts champ scores a bullseye for Boss watch

Former world darts champion Bob Anderson has received a limited-edition Boss watch for scoring a hole-in-one during a recent club competition. Anderson, 66, who was known in his prime as the Limestone Cowboy, scored his ace on the 129-yard, par-three fourteenth at the Bristol Golf Club. He plays off seven and was rewarded with a specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece and membership of the Boss Watches H1 Club which offers members access to exclusive benefits and merchandise.

No 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 are noted and automatically ratified by the golfer’s club.

Anderson was the 1988 BDO world champion and also holds three World Masters titles, from 1986 to 88, the first player to win it in three successive years. He commented, “It was a windy day and I used a 29-degree rescue club – two bounces and straight in the hole. I seem to get a hole-in-one every 22 years. On that basis I’ll be 89 when I get the next one.”
