Lyle was still a teenager when he was first diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia, but after chemotherapy treatments he was able to focus on his nascent golfing career with some support from fellow Aussie Robert Allenby, a 22-time professional victor, including four times on the PGA Tour, who became a mentor and close friend. He was survived by Briony and two daughters.

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

"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".

South African star Ernie Els said "the world has lost a good man" and Australian golfer Greg Chalmers was devastated.

Gow has paid a wonderful tribute to his friend after Lyle lost his battle with cancer. He played four seasons on the USA tour, where he earned $1.875 million in 121 tournaments.

A veteran PGA Tour golfer passed away today.

He had a bone marrow transplant past year but the illness returned and he chose to halt all treatment last week.

He thanked his many "friends around the world, whether they´re spectators, whether they´re golfers, whether they´re marshals".

"He made me smile the minute I met him. He has been mine ever since", Allenby wrote in a recent tribute on Players Voice.

"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. Quick with a joke, didn't mind a beer, and just a pure joy to be around every day, . "Miss you mate. RIP".

Briony issued a statement via Golf Australia confirming his passing, where she thanked everyone for their care and well wishes. "Jarrod will forever be an inspiration to us alI".

It is not often that you look up to someone that is much younger than yourself, but the fight that Jarrod put in on and off the golf course was an inspiration. He is entering the prime of his life, yet doesn't take anything for granted. This time, his body wasn't able to fight off the disease. "This is how we´ll remember Jarrod", it said.

Gow says one incredible trait perfectly sums up the incredible human being that Lyle was - even during his darkest days.

Melbourne sports radio station 1116 SEN has been working with Lyle's favourite charity Challenge, raising funds for Lusi and Jemma, via a Trust Fund set up by Challenge.

A private funeral service is to be held for Lyle in coming days before a public memorial service, at a date yet to be announced, at Lyle's home club, The Sands golf course in Torquay, Victoria.
