Jarrod Lyle Update: Working Television This Week, Stem Cell Transplant Next Month, A Book In Works

Mark Hayes catches up with Jarrod Lyle at this week's Australian Open, and the pro golfer battling cancer for the third time is working the event for Australia's Channel 7 (and therefore we should hear him on Golf Channel) before receiving a stem cell transplant in December.

From Hayes' story for Golf Australia:

“I’m great now, feeling really good actually,” said Lyle, who will spend time this week as an analyst of Channel 7’s coverage of the national championship.

“But I’ve got a big month coming. I’m back into hospital for some really heavy-duty treatment that’s really going to determine how things pan out for me.

“It’s pretty hard work at the moment, but that’s the reality of the situation. It’s very serious and I’m going to have to fight … thankfully I have the three girls as inspiration and I’ll do whatever I can to get back out and be a father and a husband and live as a family afterwards.”

I have had the privilege to live in Australia for 4 years and rub shoulders, caddie, participate in ProAms and soak up all things golf....can't say enough good things about the "mateship" of the Australian Pro golf community. Whether Jarrod Lyle or John Sendon this is a family affair; they have each others backs. Today I had the afternoon in the company of Rod Pampling, a few weeks ago the college roommate of Colin Montgomery - Glenn Joyner... all class acts and humbly great.
