Titleist selling yellow hats to honor Jarrod Lyle, with proceeds to his family
Golfers have worn yellow ribbons and hats to honor the late Australian golfer Jarrod Lyle. Now Titleist is selling special yellow hats that will benefit his family.
Titlelist announced on Friday that they are offering limited edition yellow bucket and adjustable golf hats. All of the sales will go to Lyle's family. The limited edition hats are available to ship only within the United States.
The hats also have Lyle's initials on them.

Lyle died on August 8 at only 36 years old after a long battle with cancer. Since then, players have helped honor Lyle. At the 2018 PGA Championship, players wore yellow ribbons. At the Wyndham Championship last week, players and caddies wore yellow hats. Titleist provided the hats for the Wyndham. Now they're making them available to purchase.
Also at the PGA Championship, Bryson DeChambeau sent his $25,000 from winning the Long Drive Compeition to Lyle's family. During the Championship, Rickie Fowler exchanged a blue shirt for a yellow one to honor Lyle.
Lyle is survived by his wife, Briony, and daughters Lusi, 6, and Jemma, 2.
"Lusi, Jemma and I are filled with grief and now must confront our lives without the greatest husband and father we could ever have wished for," Briony Lyle said.
"At the same time, we have been blessed and overwhelmed with the messages and actions of support from around the world and feel comforted that Jarrod was able to happily impact so many people throughout his life. Our humble thanks to you all."
