The Forecaddie: Bryson DeChambeau to give Jarrod Lyle family generous gift

Hours after DeChambeau made this announcement at Bellerive, Lyle, who three times had fought cancer, died at his home in Australia.

"Our entire Tour family is grieving this news, but we certainly respect and support his decision to spend the coming days with his handsome family - it's a decision true to everything he has stood for throughout his life and career: grace, dignity and an unending love of family", PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said after Bri made what she said would be the final post to Jarrod's Instagram page in July.

The former US PGA Tour player is survived by his wife and daughters Lusi, 6, and Jemma, 2.

"It breaks my heart to tell everyone that Jarrod is no longer with us".

His plight touched people around the world and his wife said the messages of support comforted him as his life drew to a close. "Our humble thanks to you all", she added.

"Thanks for your support, it meant the world", the golfer had said.

A victor of two professional tournaments, Lyle returned to golf in 2013 having beaten cancer a second time before his latest diagnosis.

'There will be a public memorial service at The Sands in Torquay at a date to be announced later. The recording was intended for a book that is being written about Lyle's life, but with permission from Lyle and his family, Hayes aired it on his show last week.

As US slaps on fresh tariffs, China fires back

Lyle, a two-time victor on the Nationwide Tour (now the Web.com Tour), was first diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia at the age of 17 and suffered recurrances in 2012 and 2017.

"As per Jarrod's wish, please donate to Challenge in lieu of gifts or flowers". "Because so many people took an interest in me and took an interest in my fight".

"It's going to be hard to leave that behind, but they know that I love them", he said, breathing heavily. It's way too short a life for anyone, not least a man who brought such infectious joy to his world, and not to mention a golfer of his considerable talents.

Ms Lyle said her husband had been "overwhelmed" by support in his final days.

"They know that I love them, they know that all the fighting that I did do was to get back out and play golf again".

Monahan pledged to Lyle's family "that Jarrod will never be forgotten; we will continue to honour his life and legacy, and that includes helping to support the needs of his family in the months and years to come".

"The story, it's so sad and his kids are suffering, obviously, from it - his whole family is - and I just thought it would be the right thing to do", DeChambeau said prior to Lyle's death.

After winning Tuesday's Long Drive Contest at the PGA Championship, DeChambeau was presented Wednesday with a gold money clip and $25,000 to the charity of his choice.
