Nexbelt Staff Professionals Jarrod Lyle, Jim Furyk to be Honored at GWAA Awards Dinner

(RANCHO CUCAMONGA) - Nexbelt Staff Professionals, Jarrod Lyle and Jim Furyk, are set to be honored by the Golf Writers Association of America (GWAA) at their 43rd Annual Awards Dinner on April 8 in Augusta, GA during Masters Week. Lyle will receive the Ben Hogan Award, which is given to a person who continues to be active in golf despite a physical handicap or serious illness. Furyk will receive the ASAP Sports/Jim Murray Award as a player who is cooperative and accommodating to the media.

Lyle has a medical exemption after defeating leukemia for a second time, and is now battling to retain his full card on the PGA Tour. If he can earn approximately $300,000.00, he will retain his card.

Lyle said he hit the ball better recently at Puerto Rico Open than he has since his return last spring. He received a sponsors' exemption to play in the Valero Texas Open this week in San Antonio, and is hopeful that he will receive some additional sponsors' exemptions this season.

"Puerto Rico was, from tee to green, the best I had hit it all year," Lyle wrote in his blog on "The first day it was blowing about 30 miles an hour all day and I missed one fairway for the day. I hit 13 greens and had 14 pars and four bogeys. I hit it even better the second day and gave myself about seven putts from inside 10 feet for birdie and missed them all. I was extremely disappointed with the week, but took a lot away from it. There are so many positives; my ball striking is getting to the place where I feel I can be competitive, my course planning is where it needs to be (and) I am thinking my way around the course very well and keeping myself out of trouble."

"Jarrod's story is so inspirational," said Eddie Rowland, Co-Founder of Nexbelt. "If anyone deserves the chance to earn his Tour Card back...its Jarrod. He's battled cancer not once, but twice. He's so close to putting it all together. I really hope some of these sponsors take his amazing story into consideration and give him the exemptions he needs to earn his full Tour Card back. I can tell you this, we're all pulling for him."

Company Founders, Tom Hunsucker, and Eddie and Francis Rowland started Nexbelt in 2010 with a vision to reinvent the way Americans buy, sell and wear their belts. Tired of the old outdated pin/buckle system, they set their sights on creating a belt that would be both adjustable and highly fashionable at the same time. Out of this passion, Nexbelt, "The Belt With No Holes" was born.
