The Wyndham Championship marked the last official PGA Tour appearance for Jarrod Lyle, who passed away last week after a lengthy battle with leukemia. The tournament will honor the beloved Aussie in a number of manners in Greensboro this week, highlighted by a Lyle-themed display on the first tee at Sedgefield. Lyle's fellow players will be doing their part as well.

Each player has be given a yellow cap in their locker to wear in memory of Lyle, who would often don a bright banana-colored bucket hat. Caddies have also received the hats—provided by Titleist, one of Lyle's sponsors—which feature Lyle's initials stitched on the back.

At the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and last week's PGA Championship, many players wore yellow ribbons in tribute to Lyle, while Rickie Fowler ditched his planned scripting for a yellow shirt in the first round at Bellerive. More importantly, the tour is supporting Lyle's family in more than just fashion choice, with Tiger Woods, Bryson DeChambeau, Jon Rahm and a wave of others donating to a fund set up for the education of Lyle's daughters.
