Golf mourns loss of Grayson Murray

PGA TOUR winner Grayson Murray passes away at 30

Grayson Murray
1st October 1993 - 25 May 2024

Grayson Murray always looked a prospect capable of reaching the upper echelons of professional golf, winning both team and individual state titles while playing at Leesville Road High School in Raleigh, North Carolina.  He won the Junior World championship in San Diego over a three consecutive year period. 

Murray earned his PGA Tour card in 2017 with 6 top-10 finishes. That same year, he claimed his first PGA Tour victory when he won the Barbasol Championship. His second PGA Tour win came in 2024, when he took the Sony Open in Hawaii in January. 

Murray was always open about his struggles with anxiety, depression and alcohol. In 2014, he once walked away from a tournament while in the lead, due to anxiety. Last week, he withdrew from the Charles Schwab Challenge on Friday before taking his own life. In addition to his PGA Tour wins, he was a three-time winner on the Korn Ferry Tour, and he had 10 top-10 finishes in 141 starts on the PGA Tour. At the time of his death, he was ranked 58th in the world. 
“I thought I was invincible as a 22-year-old, winning as a rookie, played three days hungover when I won. Best thing and worst thing that ever happened to me was winning my rookie year but also feeling like I was invincible.”

Murray, 30, is believed to have died from exhaust inhalation after leaving his SUV running in his ground-floor garage.
