Jarrod Lyle is closing in on his return to the US PGA Tour after beating leukaemia for a second time.
Two-time leukaemia survivor Jarrod Lyle will fly out of Australia for the United States this month to prepare for his US PGA Tour comeback.
On his new website jarrodlylegolf.com, Lyle has confirmed his first tournament will be the Midwest Classic in Kansas on the Web.com tour starting July 24. He will then play two other Web.com tour events, including the News Sentinel Open in Knoxville, Tennessee that Lyle won in 2008.
Lyle’s first confirmed start on the US PGA Tour is the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in Las Vegas, Nevada starting October 16, but he is also hoping for a sponsor’s invite to Frys.com in Nappa, California the week before.
Lyle last played on the PGA Tour at the Mayakoba Golf Classic in Mexico in 2012, where he finished in a tie for 37th.
He returned home to Shepparton soon after for the birth of his daughter Lusi, but was rushed to hospital in Melbourne and diagnosed with the return of acute myeloid leukaemia, the same disease that struck him down aged 17.
Lyle was able to be back in Shepparton for the birth, but returned to Melbourne the next day to start his battle against the disease.
In his website blog Lyle states ‘‘I still have a long way to go, and lots of hard work to face before I will hopefully feel ready for life on tour, but I am determined to do everyone proud and compete with the best in the world once again’’.
