Australia Golfer Jarrod Lyle Has Died Aged 36

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

Australian golfer Jarrod Lyle has died after a long battle with cancer.

Lyle, 36, spent his final days surrounded by loved ones when he decided to go into palliative care after ending treatment for myeloid leukaemia.

He is survived by his wife Briony and daughters Lusi, 6, and Jemma, 2.

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

"He passed away peacefully at 8.20pm last night having spent his final week in Torquay among his family and close friends.

“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. Our humble thanks to you all."

In the statement, Jarrod's wife also delivered his final message on his behalf.

Thanks for your support, it meant the world. 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.

The internet has exploded with messages of support for Lyle's family, many also paying tribute to his success in the sport.

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

The statement said an intimate and private family service would be held in the coming days.
