Hendrix, a starter on Clemson’s 2003 National Championship team, is a native of Aiken who graduated from Clemson on May 7.

Ferguson was a junior this past season when he posted a 71.39 stroke average, second on the Clemson team. Ferguson had five top 10 individual finishes and a team best 10 top 20s in his 13 events in 2003-04. He finished second at the ACC tournament with a 206 total and was third at the Atlanta Intercollegiate. Ferguson has been a starter on two ACC Championship teams, two NCAA Regional champions and one NCAA Championship team in his Clemson career. He ranks fourth in Clemson history in career stroke average entering next year.
