“I’ve got a rough four to six months ahead of me. I had my first chemo (Thursday) and the treatment lasted seven hours. I get the rest of the cocktail through my portable pump for 46 hours, and then I get to rest up for 10 to 12 days before the next round,” said Weiskopf to GolfWeek. 

Weiskopf, now 78, said he started his first chemotherapy treatment on Thursday after being diagnosed this past Monday. 

He is a 16-time winner on the PGA Tour, and also the winner of the 1973 Open Championship.
