Jarrod Lyle Dead - Pro Golfer Passes Away at 36

Jarrod Lyle death

Jarrod Lyle, an Australia native who played a number of years on the PGA Tour, died after a battle with cancer.

"It's heartbreaking; I've known Jarrod for a long time and my thoughts and prayers go out to (Lyle's wife) Briony and the two kids". "He passed away peacefully at 8.20 p.m. last night".

She added that Lyle had managed to pass on a final message to those who had supported him throughout his career and through his work as an ambassador with the Challenge Foundation, which helps support children with cancer. "My time was short but if I have helped people think and act on behalf of those families who suffer through cancer, hopefully it wasn't wasted".

Lyle, who won twice on the Nationwide Tour in 2008, was first diagnosed with leukaemia as a teenager and suffered recurrences of the disease in 2012 and 2017.

The 12-time US Tour victor has only bettered Thursday's driving display once, during the 2006 Barracuda Championship.

His family announced in late July that he had opted not to seek further treatment and would receive palliative care at home. He underwent a bone marrow transplant in December.

"It's going to be hard to leave that behind, but they know that I love them", he said, breathing heavily. Ellie, Dash, Lucy and I send condolences to Briony, Lusi and Jemma.

"Incredibly sad news about Jarrod Lyle", British Open champion Francesco Molinari of Italy tweeted.

"A wonderful father, friend and golfer". "Definitely happy we could be here and supporting Jarrod".

"Jarrod will forever be an inspiration to us alI. rest easy mate".

"Not one story in particular (stands out), but he was a fella who didn't take himself too seriously, " Bull said. And it's been fun to be thinking about him while we're out there playing because he probably would be the one to kind of kick you in the butt if you started feeling sad or bad.

"He showed us how to face the toughest times with the utmost positivity and his fight to the very end was so inspiring".

The European Tour posted a tribute on social media with footage of Lyle's hole in one at the Australian PGA championship in December, 2016, with a message saying "Full of joy and determination, on and off the course".

The death of Lyle, a victor of two professional tournaments, had left the PGA Tour "heartbroken", the tour's commissioner Jay Monahan said.

The Australian was diagnosed twice with blood cancer as a youth and twice thought he had beaten it only to have it return previous year.

"We will hold an intimate and private family service in the coming days".
