Grayson Murray’s Parents Confirm Cause of Death at Age 30

Grayson Murray’s Parents Confirm Cause of Death at Age 30

American professional golfer Grayson Murray has passed away at the age of 30. His parents confirmed that he took his own life.

Murray, a two-time winner on tour, withdrew in the second round of the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas, on Friday, citing an illness. The North Carolina native had recently competed in the PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club in Kentucky and the Masters Tournament at Augusta last month.

In a statement, Murray’s parents, Eric and Terry Murray, said “life wasn’t always easy” for their son. They expressed that although he took his own life, they believe he now rests peacefully. They described losing their son as a “nightmare” and shared their grief: “We have so many questions that have no answers… but one. Was Grayson loved? The answer is yes. By us, his brother Cameron, his sister Erica, all of his extended family, his friends, his fellow players, and many who are reading this. He was loved and he will be missed.”

PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan released a statement saying, “We were devastated to learn and are heartbroken to share that Grayson had died on Saturday. I am at a loss for words. The PGA Tour is a family, and when you lose a member of your family, you are never the same. We mourn Grayson and pray for comfort for his loved ones.”

Fellow PGA Tour professional Peter Malnati, who played with Murray during the early rounds of the Charles Schwab Challenge, expressed his shock and devastation in an interview with CBS Sports.

Several of Murray’s peers took to social media to pay tribute to him. English golfer Luke Donald posted on X: “Truly devastating news that Grayson Murray has passed away. He asked me for some advice on how to play Augusta a few months ago. Last week, I saw him at the PGA Championship. Life truly is precious. My condolences and prayers to his whole family that they may find some peace.”

Grayson Murray, ranked 58th in the world, was a three-time winner of the Callaway Junior Championships and played in the US Open for the first time in 2013 as an amateur. His best result in a major was a tie for 22nd at the 2017 PGA Championship.
