Jarrod Lyle confirmed Wednesday that he is battling acute myeloid leukemia for the third time.
Lyle, 35, was admitted to Royal Melbourne Hospital earlier this week after a routine blood test showed abnormal results.
The Australian was first diagnosed with the disease as a 17-year-old. After being cancer-free for more than a decade, he suffered a relapse in 2012 at the same time his first daughter, Lusi, was born. (Check out Rex Hoggard’s multi-part series here.)
After beating cancer for the second time, Lyle returned to the PGA Tour in 2014-16 but failed to keep his card after playing on a major medical extension. He returned to Australia last fall to be with his wife, Briony, Lusi and the couple’s second daughter, Jemma.
