The 19th Hole Golf Show: Reflecting on Jarrod Lyle’s final battle, then discussing a few minor golf controversies


On this week's show, Ryan talks about the devastating news Jarrod Lyle has stopped treatment for his third battle with leukemia and is pursuing a style of hospice treatment as he prepares to die. It's an emotional opening segment, and hopefully one which pays tribute to the Aussie's remarkable life and fight.

In the second half of the show, Ryan delves into the latest quibbling controversies in golf, including wondering if we're in the process of giving Bryson DeChambeau the Bubba Watson treatment.
