The 35th Annual Serie Madden's Invitational Golf Tourney!




Attention one and all, everyone's favorite Big Gun, Keith "The Howitzer" Howe has just carded his fourth lifetime ace! On the 167 yard 8th hole at at Troy Burne Golf Club in Hudson Wisconsin, using a choked-down three-quarter six iron (I'm just assuming since Howie usually hits his 8 iron from 167 yards, "Nyuk Nyuk, hey put that club down before ya hoit someone! Shut up you knuckleheads I'm trying to play golf!" Congratulations Howie! For those keeping track (me), that sums lifetime aces and double eagles among esteemed SMIGT invitees to a genuinely impressive twenty five, yowza!


Wait, what?
Our Chairman wins the 35th Annual SMIGT?
YES HE DOES!

An interesting side-note, as we head into the 34th Annual SMIGT in August 2018, Jimmy "The Lip" Lipa is still working full-time at The Pump and playing every week in the Twilight League at Gross National, talk about longevity there has been at least one member of the Lipa family working at The Pump every year since the nineteen thirties!
