Jarrod Lyle has died of cancer

His ball traveled 331 yards off the 10th tee, and nobody hit a longer tee shot.

However, one of the most generous donations of all has come from American young gun Bryson DeChambeau.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

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.

Robert Allenby, who has four wins on the PGA Tour among his 22 worldwide, has known Lyle for 20 years - their first meeting when he signed an autograph at the Australian Masters for a then 16-year-old fan and the second when Lyle was first in hospital the following year.

Lyle turned pro in 2004, and won twice on the Nationwide Tour in the US, earning his card onto the elite PGA Tour. He was diagnosed with leukemia as a youth and twice believed he had cancer beaten.

Popular character: Jarrod Lyle at the 2016 Australian Open. Lyle chose to end his cancer treatment, leaving the hospital.

"It breaks my heart to tell everyone that Jarrod is no longer with us", Ms Lyle said in a statement today.

Formula 1 team to come out of administration
Stroll junior made his debut with Williams past year and has been supported in F1 by funding secured by his father. A deal has been agreed with the joint administrators, appointed by FRP Advisory, to return the team to solvency.

Lyle was diagnosed with leukaemia as a teenager and suffered a relapse in 2012 - he chose to halt all treatment last week. "He has given everything that he's got to give, and his poor body can not take anymore".

The Golf Channel reported Wednesday evening that Lyle was in a coma.

Bri and Jarrod had two daughters, Lusi and Jemma.

"Jarrod Lyle, the story, it's so sad". "His kids are suffering, obviously, from it and the whole family is".

He thanked his many "friends around the world, whether they're spectators, whether they're golfers, whether they're marshals".

DeChambeau was finishing up a practice round at Bellerive, where on Thursday he begins play in the season's final major.

In life, you don't have too many top quality friends - ones you can trust, ones you can call upon.

"Look, there's a lot of people struggling in the world right now", he said. Jarrod's on that hand for me. "It's a good way to think of how I should live my life". "They need that. So that's why I made a decision to do it". In recent years he served as a television analyst and played competitively in Australia. In addition to his $25,000, DeChambeau was given a gold money clip for hitting the longest ball.
