Champion Australian golfer Jarrod Lyle reportedly suffering a cancer relapse.
Golf Australia have reported that Jarrod Lyle has returned to hospital after a routine blood test returned abnormal results indicating the 35-year-old may be in for a third battle against leukaemia.
Lyle, a two-time winner on the Nationwide Tour told the PGATour.com that it was “Just another bump in my road. I will fight like no other.”
Golf Australia have released a statement from Lyle’s family:
“A routine blood test conducted earlier this week returned abnormal results and Jarrod was immediately admitted to hospital and placed under the care of his previous medical specialist. He will remain there at least until a full diagnosis has been made.
“He has undergone several tests and will have several more in the coming days. At this point, we have not yet received complete test results, so there is no definitive diagnosis and we do not have an agreed treatment plan.
“We cannot speculate about anything until we get more information. We are grateful to be surrounded by incredibly supportive people and we truly appreciate your consideration and respect for our privacy at this time.”
We wish Jarrod and his family all the best and hope for a speedy recovery.
