Senden honours Lyle at PGA Charity Day

POSTED ON December 5, 2018 @ 4:56 pm

 

Hosted by PGA Tour winner John Senden and staged at Keperra Country Golf Club, the PGA Charity Day yesterday raised $46,000 for the Jarrod Lyle Family Trust Fund.

The PGA Professionals rallied around the Lyle family with the likes of recent Australian PGA Champion Cameron Smith, John Senden, Rod Pampling, Jake McLeod, Peter Senior, Steve Jeffress, Adam Blyth, Matt Guyatt, Daniel Nisbet, Anthony Quayle and many more competing in the event.

Tournament host John Senden was really proud of the PGA family coming together for such a worthy cause.

“It was really pleasing to see how everyone came together from Jordan Speith and Rickie Fowler who donated items, to our PGA Professionals here in Australia giving up their time to help make a difference in the lives of Briony, Lusi and Jemma Lyle” said Senden.

“The support shown from golf industry suppliers, local golf clubs, each of the governing bodies as well as many golfing enthusiasts who were a part of the day out is a credit to our industry and shows just how close knit the game of golf really is”.

“Keperra Country Golf Club will always be my home. I have many special memories here at the club and for them to show their support to myself, the PGA and the Lyle family is really pleasing and I thank them dearly for their commitment”.

PGA (QLD/NT) State Manager Broc Greenhalgh indicated that since it’s inception in 2017, the annual event has certainly been a success.

“Over the past two years the event has raised $85,000 for very worthy causes though it must be said that having John in town this year and seeing the support his fellow professionals were giving him, makes initiatives like this well worth while” said Greenhalgh.

“Jarrod has had an impact on many of our lives both on and off the course, and it is now our responsibility to ensure his family are supported whilst keeping the legacy Jarrod Lyle left going as strong as possible”.

It was Jake McLeod who stole the show however after TX Civil and Logistics’ Zak Raad challenged him to cut off his famous ‘man bun’. When Cameron Smith then added a further $2,000 to the total, the deal for $5,000 to be donated to the Jarrod Lyle Family Trust Fund was done.
