Jarrod Lyle dies after long battle with cancer


The young two-time PGA Tour victor gave a gift of his own, too, telling The Man Out Front that he plans to donate all of his long-drive winnings to the family of Jarrod Lyle, who last week was placed in palliative care after three battles with acute myeloid leukemia.

Jarrod is survived by his wife Briony and two daughters: Lusi, 6, and Jemma, 2.

"Lusi, Jemma and I are filled with grief and now must confront our lives without the greatest husband and father we could ever have wished for".

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

"To have so many friends around the world, whether they're spectators, whether they're golfers, whether they're marshals, whatever".

With experience by then to match his natural ability, Lyle won two Nationwide events in 2008, finishing fourth on the money list and again being elevated to the US PGA Tour.

In July 2017, he was diagnosed with the leukaemia again, and last week made the decision to stop active treatment.

En tanto, el Instituto de la Universidad de Panamá indicó que el sismo fue de 5.5mw a 70km al NE de Chepo profundidad 27km. En Medellín las autoridades no reportan ninguna emergencia a causa del movimiento telúrico.

Jarrod Lyle will be remembered as one of the most popular golfers on tour.

Considering DeChambeau barely knew Lyle, having briefly met him once at Australian Open a few years back, The Forecaddie applauds DeChambeau's display of goodwill.

"Things are about to get really serious for me and my health over the next couple of months", he wrote. He underwent a bone marrow transplant in December of a year ago.

Meanwhile, as Lyle grew weaker, Briony took over writing the blog.

A week later, Lyle and his doctors decided medical treatment should cease and he receive only palliative care. It's taken a massive toll and reached a point where his body can't take any more.

Tiger Woods was among those wearing a Leuk the Duck badge in his cap in recognition of Lyle and Challenge, the children's cancer foundation he was an ambassador for.

He returned to competitive golf in 2013 after apparently having beaten cancer for a second time.
