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

He is survived by his wife Briony, and daughters Lusi, six, and Jemma, two.

"My heart breaks as I type this message", Bri Lyle wrote on Jarrod's Facebook page last week.

"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. "My time was short but if I have helped people think and act on behalf of those families who suffer through cancer, hopefully it wasn't wasted".

Lyle, who won twice on the Nationwide Tour in 2008, was first diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia as a teenager and suffered recurrences of the disease 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.

Lyle turned professional in 2004. "Because so many people took an interest in me and took an interest in my fight. Hearing his story, three times, I believe those kids deserve a chance at a better life and they need that, so that's why I made a decision to do that". "It's going to be hard to leave that behind".

The European Tour was among many to pay tribute on Thursday. "This is how we'll remember Jarrod", it said. "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".

Such was Lyle's popularity, both with fans and his fellow golfers, that to chronicle all of the well wishes and condolences to his family would be virtually impossible. 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". "Miss you mate. RIP".

Australian Open champion Craig Parry said Lyle was an immensely popular figure.

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

Woods has made a generous donation to the family of Jarrod Lyle.

Isenhour said the outpouring of support for Lyle's family was heartwarming in such a hard time.
