Australian golfer Jarrod Lyle passes away after cancer battle

The Forecaddie: Bryson DeChambeau to give Jarrod Lyle family generous gift

Jarrod Lyle, the Australian golfer who repeatedly fought a battle with cancer, has died surrounded by family in Victoria.

"He has been mine ever since", Allenby wrote in an essay for Players Voice last week, after Briony Lyle announced her husband had chose to receive palliative care and forego further treatment.

Lyle previously overcame acute myeloid leukaemia in 1998 and 2012, before announcing it had returned previous year.

"It breaks my heart to tell everyone that Jarrod is no longer with us", his wife Briony said in a statement on Thursday.

"There are a lot of people struggling in the world right now", DeChambeau said, "but I just felt that what Jarrod has battled through is valiant and it's a tough battle, obviously, and not everybody wins. My time was short, but if I've helped people think and act on behalf of those families who suffer through cancer, hopefully it wasn't wasted", he said.

He earned his PGA Tour card in 2007 and won two tournaments on the second-tier Web.com Tour in 2008.

He played eight PGA Tour events in 2016 and only three times on the Australasian Tour in 2017.

There will be a public memorial service at The Sands in Torquay at a date to be announced.

"Jarrod - you have exemplified strength and courage for your wife and attractive daughters, for Australia and for the golf community that has walked this road with you for many years", he tweeted.

"Last year in December he couldn't be there because he was back in hospital receiving treatment, but he sent through a video message and that was great to have".

Golf Australia described Lyle as "an epic fighter with an uncommon touch", highlighting the work he did for a cancer charity and his gregarious nature. "We will all miss you so much Jarrod".

English golfer Justin Rose was among those paying tribute to Lyle. "Today we lost a great man who's life off the course is one we should all try to emulate".

"Jarrod Lyle, the story, it's so sad", DeChambeau said.

Pro golfer Bryson DeChambeau will donate a $25,000 prize to the family of Jarrod Lyle.

Bull said Lyle's death would be felt across the globe - a testament to the impact the boy from Shepparton had wherever he went.

The first month of 2018 was declared "January for Jarrod" month on the US PGA Tour and tributes began to appear on the social media accounts of every prominent player in the world.

Last week he went into palliative care and went home to spend time with his family. "Our humble thanks to you all", she added. He liked the idea of inspiring people suffering from cancer and other illnesses, and he talked to many of them when he was well in his role as an ambassador for Challenge, the children's cancer network.
