Australian golfer Jarrod Lyle has lost his battle with cancer, dying aged 36 after halting treatment for leukaemia last week, sparking an outpouring of grief from fellow players Thursday, August 9.

Last week, Lyle and his family announced that he had made a decision to end his treatment for acute myeloid leukemia and would undergo palliative care at his home.

Lyle is survived by wife Briony, and daughters Lusi and Jemma.

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

A private funeral service is to be held for Lyle in coming days before a public memorial service, at a date yet to be announced, at Lyle's home club, The Sands golf course in Torquay, Victoria. "He passed away peacefully at 8.20 p.m. last night having spent his final week among his family and close friends".

Briony Lyle said her husband had asked her to pass on a "simple message: 'Thanks for your support, it meant the world". Our humble thanks to you all.

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said Lyle's death had left the tour "heartbroken". "Because so many people took an interest in me and took an interest in my fight".

"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". "Miss you mate. RIP".

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

For all the criticism that has been heaped on Bryson DeChambeau, like a one-length 9-iron into one of Bellerive's soft greens, The Forecaddie would like to shed light on a positive regarding the 24-year-old Ryder Cup hopeful. The affable Australian, who won twice on the Web.com Tour and posted five top 10 finishes on the PGA Tour, had been waging a almost 20-year battle with leukemia. "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", Jarrod's note read.

Jarrod Lyle will be missed.

He had a bone marrow transplant a year ago but the illness returned and he chose to halt all treatment last week. "They need that more than anything right now".

Close friend and fellow pro Robert Allenby paid tribute to Lyle, who he has known for almost 20 years, in a moving tribute on The Player's Voice last week.

The father of two began his professional golfing career in 2004, with a top 4 finish in his first professional event, the NSW Open, having recovered from his first bout of cancer at age 17.

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