Hugely Beloved Australian Golfer Jarrod Lyle Has Passed Away, Aged 36

Jarrod Lyle

Shepparton golfer Jarrod Lyle has lost his long battle with cancer, passing away on Wednesday night, aged 36.

"Our entire Tour family is grieving this news, but we certainly respect and support his decision to spend the coming days with his attractive family - it's a decision true to everything he has stood for throughout his life and career: grace, dignity and an unending love of family", PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said after Bri made what she said would be the final post to Jarrod's Instagram page in July.

Lyle, 36, battled bravely against acute myeloid leukaemia, beating the disease twice in 1998 and 2012.

A victor of two professional tournaments, Lyle returned to golf in 2013 having beaten cancer a second time before his latest diagnosis.

The statement said a an intimate and private family service would be held in the coming days.

In her statement to Golf Australia, Briony said that Jarrod had asked her to pass along a message from him to express gratitude for the outpouring of condolences along with hopes for his legacy.

"He passed away peacefully ... last night having spent his final week in Torquay among his family and close friends". Our humble thanks to you all.

Lyle joined the PGA Tour in 2007 and managed a handful of top-10 finishes. "You were and always will be a fighter and will be missed by so many people".

"Because he played both the European and American tours just about everyone knew him, and there wasn't a person who knew him that didn't love him".

It is not often that you look up to someone that is much younger than yourself, but the fight that Jarrod put in on and off the golf course was an inspiration.

"To have so many friends around the world, whether they're spectators, whether they're golfers, whether they're marshals, whatever". His agent is friends with Lyle, and DeChambeau had followed, and been taken in by, Lyle's health battle. "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".

United States pro golfer Bryson DeChambeau won the Long Drive Competition on the 10th hole of Bellerive on Tuesday, and donated the $25,000 to Jarrod Lyle's daughters.

Bryson De Chambeau donates $37,450 prizemoney for Longest Drive to family of late Australian golfer Jarrod Lyle. "Hearing his story, three times, I believe those kids deserve a chance at a better life and they need that, so that's why I made a decision to do that".

There will be a public memorial service at The Sands in Torquay on Thursday, September 27.

He gradually reduced his handicap to scratch and earned a golf scholarship before turning professional in 2004.

She also explained that her husband wanted donations to be made to charity Challenge, in place of gifts and flowers.

Australian golf writer Ben Everill described Lyle as "what Australians call a larrikin".
