‘An inspiration to all of us’: Love flows for Lyle from golf world

AUSTRALIAN golfer Jarrod Lyle has opted not to seek further treatment in his long fight against leukemia and will receive palliative care at home, his family announced late Tuesday.

Lyle, who won twice on the Nationwide Tour in 2008, was first diagnosed with leukemia as a teenager and suffered recurrences of the disease in 2012 and 2017.

He made an emotional comeback to the golf course during the 2013 Australian Masters in Melbourne before using a medical exemption to play on the US PGA Tour in 2015.

Lyle returned to Australia permanently to be with Briony and daughters Lusi and Jemma.

The 36-year-old is loved on the Tour, and messages of support have already begun to flow from around the world.
