January 23, 2002

January 23, 2002, Greencastle, Ind. - There will be a decidedly DePauw flavor to this week's Phoenix Open golf tournament. Overseeing things as tournament chairman will be 1981 DePauw University graduate Scott K. Henderson (seen in photo). Other DePauw alumni involved with the tournament include Dan Fox '83, Greg Mast '76, and Len Huck '44.

The 2002 Phoenix Open field includes 98 of last year's top 125 PGA Tour money winners, including David Duval, Fred Couples and Davis Love. The tournament can be seen Thursday through Sunday of this week on the USA and CBS television networks.

Scott Henderson served as assistant tournament chairman last year and has been an active member of the Thunderbirds for seven years. The Thunderbirds promote Phoenix sports and, since their inception in the 1930's, have donated more than $18 million to charitable causes in their community.

Henderson has practiced law in Phoenix since 1984, and is a partner with the international law firm of Squires, Sanders & Dempsey. His legal practice is focused on real estate development and finance and the structuring of complex business transactions. He was born in Alameda, California, but raised in Indiana and Michigan. He completed his undergraduate studies at DePauw University and earned his law degree from Indiana University. In addition to his volunteer work for the Thunderbirds, Henderson has served on the Fiesta Bowl Committee and the Men's Arts Council. He and his wife, Jean, have four children: Meredeth, 11; Hannah, 10; Sam, 8 and Dana, 4.
