An Open Championship winner and 16-time PGA Tour champion, Weiskopf was also a runner-up four times in the Masters Tournament in Augusta, Ga. He finished in the top 10 in 21 of his 71 major championships played.
The Masters was a particular heartbreak for Weiskopf. In 1969, he lost to George Archer by one. In 1972, he lost to Jack Nicklaus by three. In 1974, Gary Player beat him by two. In 1975, he tied for second with Johnny Miller, both beaten by Nicklaus by one. Weiskopf led that Masters after 54 holes by one over Nicklaus and four over Miller.
He led the final round after 15 holes, but played the last three at 1 over. That was his last, best shot at the Masters.
Later in life, Weiskopf was known for his golf course design at TPC Scottsdale, Olympic Club, Silverleaf Club, Troon North Golf Club and Yellowstone Club in Montana.
He contributed to CBS and ABC as a broadcaster across many major championships after his PGA Tour playing ended, calling the Masters from 1985-95. He was also an analyst at the Open Championship.
Weiskopf was diagnosed with cancer in December 2020.
