Tributes flowed for Australian golfer Jarrod Lyle Thursday after he lost his battle with cancer, dying aged 36 after halting treatment for leukaemia last week. ‘It breaks my heart to tell everyone that Jarrod is no longer with us,’ his wife Briony said in a statement. The former US PGA Tour player, who had children aged six and two, passed away on Wednesday evening at his home outside Melbourne surrounded by family and friends. Lyle moved into palliative care on August 1 to see out his final days, saying his body could not ‘take anymore’ after acute myeloid leukaemia returned for a third time. His plight touched people around the world and his wife said the messages of support comforted him as his life drew to a close.
