    In amongst all our hurly burly it would be remiss of us not to say how very sad it is to learn of the passing of Jarrod Lyle.
    Without a doubt a champion fellow and quintessentially Australian.
    He and his family have shown incredible courage in the most demanding of circumstances.
    We could all take a leaf out of their book.
    No doubt Australia has lost a very good one.
    So young, so very sad and so incredibly tragic.
    If only we could be so courageous in the face of such adversity.
    He will be sorely missed RIP champion.

    I’m not a golf fan, but this is desperately sad.

    Cancer/leukaemia are such shitty diseases.

    Good thread, OT.

    It was very sad indeed, he fought the good fight. So young and leaves a young family.

    What they showed on this morning’s news really pulled at the heart strings . An unbelievably brave young man who could still look on the bright side even at the end , sympathy to his family.
