The 28th annual Scott Homan Memorial high school golf tournament will be played Monday at Piqua Country Club.
Homan, the Piqua High School golfer who was killed tragically in a car accident more than two decades ago, will be smiling down as always on what has become one of the premier golf events in the Miami Valley.
“I wanted to do something that benefitted more than one or two kids,” Homan’s mother Cindy Homan Walk said. “Of course the scholarships (the Homan Family has awarded) are nice and important. But, I wanted to do something that would benefit a lot of kids, not just one, and Scotty loved golf. So we decided to have this tournament in his memory.”
And the Homan family has made sure it is a special event for everyone who plays — with golfers and coaches in agreement it is a first class event they look forward to each year because of the Homan family.
“To be honest,” Homan Walk said. “I never envisioned anything. I am really proud of the way things have turned out.”
Play will begin around 11 a.m. Monday in the shotgun start with 18 teams participating.
Piqua has two teams and also playing will de defending champion Tecumseh, Wapakoneta, Minster, Tippecanoe, Troy, Urbana, Versailles, Greenville, Milton-Union, Covington, St. Marys, Lehman, Graham, Northmont, Miami East and Sidney.
