The victory was the eighth straight in the series for the United States team, which now has a 21-7 lead in the series.
The matches include eight men and four women in singles and doubles competition over a three-day period. Clemson was the only school with two players in the competition. Hendrix and Ferguson were both named All-Americans this past year and will return to the Clemson team in 2003-04.
This was the second straight year a Clemson golfer had helped the US to victory in this competition. Gregg Jones had an undefeated
record for the US in the 2002 matches.
Ferguson, who was Clemson's top golfer at team's NCAA Championship victory at Karsten Creek this past year, posted a 2-0-1 record in his three matches. He and Steve Conway halved Japan's Toyokazu Fujishima and Kunihiro Kamii, 144-144.
In individual play, Ferguson defeated Japan's Satoshi Sakamoto 71-72, then defeated Takafumi Kawane, 69-72. Hendrix had a 1-2 record, losing a doubles match with Jay Mundy in the first round before splitting his two singles matches.
After one day of rest on Sunday, Hendrix and Ferguson will travel to New York for the Porter Cup this coming week. It is one of the top amateur events in the nation.
