"there's a few tournaments a year where i have families i've stayed with for quite a while now and you know i lok forward t going back to them." for the last four years - web-dot-com tour pro scott harrington has stayed with the same family when he's played at victoria national's united leasing and finance championship. staying with a family means a pro golfer gets a warmer welcome home - and even a little positive energy - than they would if they just stayed at a hotel. "every night when you don't play very well you know hopefully the people you're staying with can maybe take your mind of golf a little bit." this year upwards of 60 families have taken in at least one player -- but that number could be higher because they don't always go through the p-g-a website for housing. "there have been people that have developed relationships over the six years that don't go through the pga prcess . they call back to that homeowner." john schutz has hosted harrington for the last four years. he says not only for him -- but for many of the host families -- these players become like extended members of the family. "we look forward to the opportunity when they come back to town and when we see them doing good somewhere else we'll send them an email or a text and say great job and give them a little cheer leading along the way." the united leasing and finance championship runs through sunday. chelsea koerbler, 44news. and it was really quite a beautiful day out at the course today, but that's all going to change soon. let's get you over to chief meteorologist chad evans for a first check of tonight's forecast. an evansville woman who was found dead in tennessee has authorities scrambling for answers. and right now, there are more questions than answers. 20-year-old allison tenbarge is the daughter of vanderburgh county sheriff lieutenant kenneth tenbarge. police found her body yesterday (wed) morning after being called out to check on an apartment near clarksville, tennessee. her alleged killer -- 21-year-old quentin bird -- was arrested and faces murder charges. while the vanderburgh county sheriff's office is not involved in the investigation, deputies are looking out for lieutenant kenneth tenbarge as he and his family grieve. dave: we have a peer support group that he can reach out to we're always there right now we're just letting him grief and kind of give him some space we've reached out to him when he's ready for us to jump in there and help him we'll be there for him." investigators say the murder is believed to be the result of a domestic situation. they also say allison was pregnant - and that they're still working on a motive. an 18 year old is in critical condition - after an overnight shooting in henderson. police say - someone shot rashaud harvey in the chest at around 9:30 last night. it happened just north of south adams and vine in henderson. medics took harvey to methodist hospital for treatment - and police are still searching for a suspect. det. troutman says: "everything i'm told about this boy that was shot is that he was an extremely good boy that cares about his community. he walks around he offers to mow several yard and i've already spoke to at least four people in the area that he mows their yard for them." police think someone knows what happened last night. and they're asking anyone with information to come forward now. if you have a tip, contact the henderson police immediately. an evansville man will likely spend the rest of his life in prison on child molesting and weapons charges. a vanderburgh circuit court judge handed down the sentence to 25 year old ryan remling today (thu). remling faces up to 79 years in prison after a jury convicted him in march on four counts of child molesting. he also was charged with possession of a deadly weapon while he was being held at the vanderburgh county jail last december. remling pleaded guilty to that charge. police arrested him after detectives got word of videos of him engaged in sexual activity with a victim under the age of 14. indiana university is taking a stance on sexual and domestic violence. it will ban any athlete with a criminal history from participating in athletic programs. 44 news anchor chris cerenelli joins us now with a closer look at the new policy - chris? the policy is sparking a lot of conversation on the bloomington campus. it extends to any prospective student athletes, transfers and current players moving forward - male or female. in its own study - i-u reported that 17 percent of undergraduate women and two percent of undergraduate men reported experiencing sexual assault. this policy covers athletes who have either been registered in some sort of legal capacity - or even been sanctioned by their sports organization or their school senior associate athletic director jeremy gray says it?s about drawing a line in the sand - declaring what an athletic program should stand for.
