Lucas Herbert, aiming for victory at the Australian PGA, is also honoring his late friend Jarrod Lyle by serving as the Yellow Day ambassador. The initiative, turning Royal Queensland "yellow," seeks to raise awareness and funds for children battling cancer.
Lyle, a two-time Korn Ferry Tour winner, was a lifelong ambassador for Challenge, a charity supporting families affected by cancer. Herbert emphasized the importance of Yellow Day, considering that it is an opportunity to remember Jarrod, a man who spread positivity with his appearance and spread everyone's awareness of the importance of raising money for children with cancer.
“Yellow Day is all about remembering our mate Jarrod, all the positivity he brought to the game of golf, the achievements he had and importantly to continue to raise awareness and much-needed funds for Challenge to support kids with cancer,” -Herbert said.
Lucas Herbert on Jarrod Lyle
Herbert will never forget his friend who played a significant role in his career. When he was starting out, Jarrod provided valuable advice that proved to be crucial to his success. Jarrod was a person who helped all golfers, especially those who just started to build their career.
“Although it’s been five years now since Jarrod passed, he’s still very much in our thoughts, and what he gave to all of us, especially young players like me when I was just starting my golf career, is still fresh in our minds." In the end, Lucas Herbert invited everyone to join him and help turn the course yellow.
Truly, a great gesture that reflects tremendous respect. “We miss his big smile and his never-quit attitude. I’d love everyone who comes along to RQ on Yellow Day this year to get involved even more than ever before.
Get out your yellow shirts, yellow hats, yellow zinc and help us turn the course yellow”. Source: thewest.com
