Grayson Murray’s golfer died by suicide

Grayson Murray, a professional golfer, committed suicide, according to a statement his parents provided to the PGA Tour.

Eric and Terry Murray said, “We have been trying to accept the fact that our son is no longer with us for the past 24 hours.” It seems strange that we have to acknowledge it to the outside world in addition to ourselves. It’s a bad dream.

“We would like to thank the PGA Tour and the entire golf community for the outpouring of support,” the statement said. Grayson’s life wasn’t always easy, and even though he ended his own life, we know he is now at peace.

The PGA Tour revealed Murray’s passing on Saturday, one day after the 30-year-old withdrew from the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas, citing sickness.

In a playoff against South Korea’s An Byeong-hun and former PGA Championship winner Keegan Bradley earlier this year, Murray emerged victorious at the Sony Open, capping a six-and-a-half-year losing streak during which he acknowledged dealing with both physical and mental health problems.

Murray, a Raleigh, North Carolina native, was considered one of the top youth athletes in the world after winning three IMG youth World titles in 2006, 2007, and 2008.

According to the PGA, at the age of 19, he participated in the 2013 US Open after becoming the second youngest player to make the cut on the PGA’s developmental Korn Ferry Tour at the age of 16. At the young age of 23, he went on to win the 2017 Barbasol Championship.
