Fighting off the course

Fighting off the course

28 August 2017

Hi everybody.

I wanted to start out by saying a huge thank you to everybody for your messages of support over the last 5 weeks. They haven't gone unnoticed. We have been inundated with support, and it’s very overwhelming and humbling.

After being diagnosed in late July, I spent 3 weeks in hospital in Melbourne having my first brutal round of chemo. I was surprised by how well I was able to handle it this time, with only a few bad side effects and a couple of miserable days. The main goal of the first round of chemo was to get rid of the leukaemic cells and get me into remission, and I responded very well and accomplished that goal.  As of just last week I’m now in remission, so with this big step forward we can now definitely look towards a bone marrow transplant in the near future. This is the only way forward to get a complete cure from this disease and one that my doctors are keen to get organised.

I am writing this blog from the hotel at Melbourne airport as we are less than 24 hours away from leaving Australian shores.

Things have been very busy since my last blog. I have been playing a lot of golf, and playing well too. I have celebrated my 2nd birthday and had a surprise party to mark the occasion. After my transplant on June 8th 2012, I decided to celebrate that day instead of my actual birthday. Attached to the day is "Jarrod's annual cord transplant golf day extravaganza" that I have played for the last two years with some of my closest friends. It could be the most hotly contested golf tournament going around!

Time For Tour Life Again

Time For Tour Life Again

21 May 2014

Hi everybody and welcome to my new website. I’m planning to write a blog as often as I can to keep you up to date with my practice and preparation for returning to the PGA Tour. 

For the month of May, I have challenged myself to play as many rounds of golf at my local course (The Sands, Torquay) as I can. To date, I have played nine rounds in 20 days - which does not really compare to the workload on Tour, but is a lot more golf than I’ve been able to play since March 2012. I have surprised myself by shooting some good scores, including a 67 and a couple of 68s. It’s good to see my hard work finally coming to fruition.
