Jarrod Lyle's amazing comeback

Some golfers come from a few strokes behind on Sunday, Jarrod Lyle made his comeback from leukaemia. Lyle fought the disease for a year, and yesterday on Australia's legendary Royal Melbourne golf course, he came very near winning the Heinekein.
There's a good story about Lyle here when he was contending for the championship and briefly took the lead on the second day.
Of course, he didn't win -- ending tied for third -- when Craig Parry took the championship in a playoff. There's a really nice profile of Parry here.
Best bit of all? Seeing Royal Melbourne, with its dramatic flashed bunkers, on television. Better than Augusta, I tell you.
