Salem's Pat Fitzsimons and Portland's Peter Jacbosen are named pro and amateur golfer of the year, respectively, in Oregon.

Fitzsimons won the 1975 Los Angeles Open on the PGA Tour.

Jacobsen, who turned 21 in March, edged University of Oregon teammate Jeff Sanders for the amateur award, after wins in the Royal Oaks and Northwest invitationals, second-place finishes in the Oregon Open and Pac-8 tournament and an eighth-place showing in the NCAA tourney.
