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

Charismatic Lyle announced he was ending his treatment to enter palliative care last week, and spent his final days with family and friends before dying yesterday.

A victor of two professional tournaments, Lyle made a remarkable return to the US PGA Tour in 2013 having beaten cancer a second time before his latest diagnosis.

A statement from the Lyle family, published by Golf Australia' website, said he passed away at 8.20pm on Wednesday night in Torquay.

His wife, Briony, said in a statement: "It breaks my heart to tell everyone that Jarrod is no longer with us".

"There are a lot of people struggling in the world right now", DeChambeau said, "but I just felt that what Jarrod has battled through is valiant and it's a tough battle, obviously, and not everybody wins". "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".

A victor of two professional tournaments, Lyle made a remarkable return to the US PGA Tour in 2013 having beaten cancer a second time before his latest diagnosis.

A veteran PGA Tour golfer passed away today.

Last week, Lyle thanked friends and fans in an emotional message after deciding to halt his treatment, saying he was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support.

He returned at the Australian Masters at the end of 2013.

"I spoke to his wife Bri recently and we both agreed that Jarrod is that rare person where nobody, and I mean nobody, can say a negative thing about".

Through his battles with leukaemia and his fight to get back to the top level of golf, he inspired thousands of people across the world.

A loveable and popular member of the world of golf, Lyle's tragic passing has touched his former rivals from all over the world.

Lyle was initially diagnosed as a teenager in 1999, but it resurfaced twice, most recently a year ago. When cleaning out her room we found a large folder with clippings of stories and photos of Jarrod.

The first month of 2018 was declared "January for Jarrod" month on the US PGA Tour and tributes began to appear on the social media accounts of every prominent player in the world.

"To play on the PGA Tour is incredible, but to have gone through what he went through puts it into persective", Isenhour said.

"Thank you for showing us how to go about life and how to treat others".

The American, ranked 22nd in the world, said it should go to Lyle's family after a fund was set up for the two daughters.

The tournament is growing each year and Washington hoped to continue the event for many years to come in order to celebrate the life of a man who had time for everyone, no matter who they were.
