He also has four Web.com Tour victories to his credit in a career in which he earned nearly $3 million from tour golf.

Prior to turning pro, Hnatiuk also had a Manitoba Amateur championship on his resume.

Joining him in the Hall will be Dale Goehring and former four-time Manitoba Women’s Amateur champ Tannys Aspevig as players, former Amateur champ Steven Bannatyne as builder/player and former MLGA president and former Hall of Fame president Joyce Collier as a builder.

Bannatyne captured provincial Amateur titles in 1972 and 1974 in an era many consider the toughest ever with the likes of Jim Doyle, Gary Kullman and the Homeniuk brothers all in the mix.

Aspevig won the first of her Amateurs in 1967, then took three in a row from 1969 to 1971.

Goehring, who doesn't have a Manitoba Amateur crown, won the Canadian Amateur in 1997 in P.E.I.
