The golf world mourned the shocking death of two-time PGA Tour winner Grayson Murray.

Murray, 30, withdrew from the Charles Schwab Cup Challenge one day before news of his death broke.

“We were devastated to learn – and are heartbroken to share – that PGA TOUR player Grayson Murray passed away this morning. I am at a loss for words,” PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan said.

“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,” he added.

From the Associated Press:

His management company, GSE Worldwide, confirmed the death and said it was heartbroken.

“We will hold off on commenting until we learn further details, but our heart aches for his family, his friends and all who loved him during this very difficult time,” GSE said in a statement.

Monahan said he spoke with Murray’s parents to offer condolences, and they asked that the tournament in Fort Worth, Texas, continue.

He said grief counselors would be on site at the PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour event in Knoxville, Tennessee. Monahan headed to Texas and later appeared on CBS as the third round was ending.

“To see the devastation on the faces of every player coming in is really difficult to see and really just profound,” Monahan said. “Grayson was a remarkable player, but he was a very courageous man. I’ve always loved that about him.”

Murray’s parents later confirmed he died by suicide.

“The parents of PGA tour golfer Grayson Murray have confirmed that their son took his own life. Murray took his life after he withdrew on Friday during the second round of the 2024 Charles Schwab Challenge,” Collin Rugg said.

“Grayson previously opened up about his struggles and how it impacted his family,” he added.

Pro golfer Grayson Murray’s parents revealed he died by suicide following the news of his passing on Saturday.

“We have spent the last 24 hours trying to come to terms with the fact that our son is gone,” Eric and Terry Murray wrote in a statement shared by the PGA Tour Sunday.

“It’s surreal that we not only have to admit it to ourselves, but that we also have to acknowledge it to the world. It’s a nightmare.”

They continued, “We have so many questions that have no answers.”

Grayson’s parents added that their son was surrounded by love from his siblings, extended family, friends and fans.

“Life wasn’t always easy for Grayson, and although he took his own life, we know he rests peacefully now,” they continued.
