"My time was short": Jarrod Lyle dies, aged 36

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.

Lyle spent his final days surrounded by loved ones when he made a decision to go into palliative care after ending treatment for a third bout of myeloid leukaemia.

Lyle, announced last week that he was ending treatment for cancer and entering palliative care.

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

"My heart breaks as I type this message", Bri Lyle wrote on Jarrod's Facebook page last week.

"Thanks for your support, it meant the world", the golfer had said. "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 returned to competitive golf in 2013 after apparently having beaten cancer for a second time.

After an another setback he made an emotional comeback to a Victorian state golf course during the 2013 Australian Masters before using a medical exemption to play on the U.S. PGA Tour in 2015.

The statement said a an intimate and private family service would be held in the coming days. You've been an inspiration to the entire golf community and a huge loss.

He had a bone marrow transplant a year ago but the illness returned and he chose to halt all treatment last week.

After reaching the heights of the professional golfing circuit during his career, Lyle always had time for the place where he first learned to swing a club.

"Rest easy mate. We will miss you", he added, while British Open champion Francesco Molinari said it was "tough times for everyone on tour losing someone so special".

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

Lyle's wife Briony confirmed the sad news in a statement on Thursday morning.

South African star Ernie Els said "the world has lost a good man" and Australian golfer Greg Chalmers was devastated. When cleaning out her room we found a large folder with clippings of stories and photos of Jarrod.

"Thank you for showing us how to go about life and how to treat others".

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said Lyle's death had left the tour "heartbroken".

Tough times for everyone on tour losing someone one special, but I can not imagine what his family went through and are going through.

Melbourne sports radio station 1116 SEN has been working with Lyle's favourite charity Challenge, raising funds for Lusi and Jemma, via a Trust Fund set up by Challenge. "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 chose to do that".
