She said Lyle asked for her to deliver a message: "Thanks for your support, it meant the world".

The 36-year-old spent his final days surrounded by loved ones when he chose to go into palliative care after ending treatment for myeloid leukaemia.

Bri and Jarrod had two daughters, Lusi and Jemma.

Briony said that Lyle was overwhelmed by the kind and generous acts the world had shown him in his final days and even wanted to provide a message to everyone who reached out during his battle.

"

"My time was short. hopefully it wasn't wasted."

".

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.

"At the same time, we have been blessed and overwhelmed with the messages and actions of support from around the world and feel comforted that Jarrod was able to happily impact so many people throughout his life".

Samsung 4TB QLC SSDs enter mass production - Storage
For the hardcore techies: the 4TB 2.5-inch SATA-based SSDs read and write data at 540 MB/s and 520 MB/s, respectively. That charge is used to read information from a sensor, so it's much more hard to maintain performance over time.

A promising amateur golfer at the time, Lyle managed to overcome the disease by the age of 19, and subsequently went on to not only return to the golf course, but quickly reduce his handicap to scratch and secure a scholarship at the Victorian Institute of Sport.

"To have so many friends around the world, whether they're spectators, whether they're golfers, whether they're marshals, whatever. It's going to be hard to leave that behind". "They know that all the fighting that I did do was to get back out and play golf again". "We are respecting Jarrod's family's request for privacy, but they know we are here for whatever they need during this hard time and beyond".

Fellow Australian golfer Greg Chalmers was emotional.

He is sending it to Australia, earmarked for Jarrod Lyle and his family. A wonderful father, friend and golfer. "Quick with a joke, didn't mind a beer, and just a pure joy to be around every day", Chalmers posted on Twitter. "Miss you mate. RIP", he said. DeChambeau, a Californian who turns 25 next month, said he met Lyle when he competed in Australia at the end of 2015.

"He played such good golf while battling illness; he has been through it all", he said. 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. I believe those kids deserve some chance at a better life.

Bryson DeChambeau is supporting Jarrod Lyle's family with the money he won Tuesday at Bellerive Country Club.
