Born in Kamsack, SK , Wilf Homenuik was one of seven brothers, all of whom took to the links at one time or another. The level of internal competition might have added to his success – but whatever the root, his record speaks for itself. Eight international professional titles, 2 Canadian Professional Golfer Association (CPGA) championships, 2 CPGA Match Play Championships for the Millar Trophy and eleven provincial titles mark the career of this committed golfer. This well beloved teacher also played for Canada at the World Cup in 1965, 1971 and 1974 with such well known Canadian’s as George Knudson, Ben Kern and Moe Norman.
