As news of the passing of Jarrod Lyle after a long battle with leukemia came to hand on Thursday morning, the outpouring of emotions from all corners of the sporting world immediately followed.
Such was Lyle's popularity, both with fans and his fellow golfers, that to chronicle all of the well wishes and condolences to his family would be virtually impossible. But here is a sampling of the impact the 36-year-old's passing has had.
"It is through a river of tears I say goodbye to my friend Jarrod Lyle. A wonderful father, friend and golfer," Australian golfer Greg Chalmers tweeted. "Quick with a joke, didn’t mind a beer, and just a pure joy to be around every day. Miss you mate. RIP"
"It is with a heavy heart and a mountain of tears that I say a final goodbye to my friend Jarrod Lyle," wrote another golfer, American veteran Tripp Isenhour.
