Former PGA Tour pro Jarrod Lyle dies at 36

Jarrod Lyle was famous for his infectious smile and sense of humour

Australian golfer Jarrod Lyle, who has died aged 36, hopes his long battle with cancer somehow helps other families suffering through the disease. "He made the world a better place".

Four-time major victor Rory McIlroy tweeted: "The courage shown through his battle is an inspiration to all of us". Tough times for everyone on tour losing someone one special, but I can not imagine what his family went through and are going through.

"We're really proud of the tournament and we're building it every year, it's got great support, " Washington said.

Our hearts go out to Briony and the entire Lyle family.

British Open champion Francesco Molinari of Italy said it was "tough times for everyone on Tour, losing someone so special".

"Jarrod's story resonated with so many people. Rest In Peace Jarrod", Reed tweeted.

Robert Allenby, who has four wins on the PGA Tour among his 22 worldwide, has known Lyle for 20 years - their first meeting when he signed an autograph at the Australian Masters for a then 16-year-old fan and the second when Lyle was first in hospital the following year.

Tiger Woods and Jon Rahm have also made donations since news broke about Lyle going into palliative care.

"Jarrod will forever be an inspiration to us all".

Huddersfield Town 0 Chelsea 3: Disappointing result, not display, claims Wagner
Last season Huddersfield survived with just 28 goals. "We kept them away from our goal and as I said they scored out of nothing". Higuain was heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge this summer but ultimately signed for AC Milan on loan from Juventus.

Sarri learns lessons from Chelsea's opening win at Huddersfield
Like Wolves, Fulham earned rave reviews for their summer business, outspending United and City, in signing 12 new players. Unfortunately for Huddersfield and Kongolo, Chelsea managed to score twice before half-time which stretched the defence.

Maurizio Sarri already has some 'regrets' over Chelsea's transfer window
Willian dashed down the left and stood up a cross that found its way to Kante at the back post. Could they be potential title challengers this season?

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

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. "And the insane thing is he was always upbeat and positive", Day said.

"As a member of the Shepparton Golf Club, Jarrod was an inspirational man and an inspirational golfer".

"We are very sad to hear of Jarrod Lyle's passing", South African golfer Ernie Els said on Twitter.

England's Rose starts in the afternoon alongside Spain's Jon Rahm and three-time major victor Jordan Spieth, an American who can complete a career Grand Slam with a victory this week.

Justin Rose says the back injury that forced him to withdraw from last week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational didn't cause him any problems during an opening-round 67 at the PGA Championship.

Several American players were hunting for Ryder Cup points in the final qualifying event for the first eight spots on the U.S. squad that will defend the trophy against Europe next month in France.

Bryson DeChambeau said earlier Wednesday that he would donate the winnings - a gold money clip and $25,000 - from Tuesday's PGA Championship long-drive contest to the Lyle family. "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 chose to do that".
