Golf Australia and the PGA of Australia have led the tributes to Jarrod Lyle, who died yesterday aged 36 after a long battle with leukaemia.

In her statement to Golf Australia, Briony said that Jarrod had asked her to pass along a message from him to express gratitude for the outpouring of condolences along with hopes for his legacy.

Fox Sports commentator and former professional, Paul Gow, was a good friend of Lyle's and knew better than most just how special the father-of-two was. In 2008, he won two events on the Web.com Tour, a feeder for the PGA Tour.

Tiger Woods was among those wearing a Leuk the Duck badge in his cap in recognition of Lyle and Challenge, the children's cancer foundation he was an ambassador for.

Lyle joined the PGA Tour in 2007 and managed a handful of top-10 finishes. "Despite facing such adversity, Jarrod maintained his passion for golf and continued to pursue his professional career, and we were fortunate to have him on the PGA".

Lyle was born August 21, 1981, in Shepparton, Australia, about two hours north of Melbourne.

'A wonderful father, friend and golfer.

The Aussie was reportedly first diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in 1999, when he was just 17. The cancer returned in 2012, when he was 30.

A victor of two professional tournaments, Lyle returned to golf in 2013 having beaten cancer a second time before his latest diagnosis. "He's married. He has a new baby coming".

With his game again on hold, Lyle and Briony launched a line of golf apparel and as his recovery progressed he joined the TV commentary team for the Australian Open. He was diagnosed with leukemia as a youth and twice believed he had cancer beaten. Lyle chose to end his cancer treatment, leaving the hospital.

Last week he went into palliative care and went home to spend time with his family.

Marc Leishman, also at the championship, said the golf community was saddened.

"It is through a river of tears I say goodbye to my friend Jarrod Lyle", he tweeted.

"Jarrod and I have been friends for 25 years and I am lucky to have spent a lot of quality time with Jarrod during those 25 years, " Bull said. It was different this time.

"What I would come to realise over time is that Jarrod possesses a determination, grit and inner strength unlike anybody I've met in my life", Allenby wrote in a piece for Players Voice.

"Next week I'm going to hospital for a bone marrow transplant".

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

Lyle - a two-time victor on the Nationwide Tour - passed away on Wednesday night in Victoria.
