Jarrod Lyle passed away last week at the age of 36 after losing his third battle with cancer.
And after a PGA Championship filled with tributes to the Australian, the Wyndham Championship found its own way to keep his legacy alive at the North Carolina Tour stop.
Next to the Wyndham Championship and PGA Tour logos carved into the sand on site at Sedgefield Country Club is Lyle’s name and the “Leuk the Duck” mascot. The duck has become synonymous with Challenge, an organization that supports kids with cancer.
Fellow Aussie Stuart Appleby posted the display on social media:

(Pic update) Brighter is better
Lyle was also remembered in a more traditional manner on the first tee, where his bag and trademark yellow bucket hat were prominently displayed.
