Golfer Grayson Mur­ray died by sui­cide, his par­ents have revealed in a state­ment. Mur­ray, a two-time win­ner on the PGA Tour, died at the age of 30 – 24 hours after he with­drew towards the end of his sec­ond round the Charles Schwab Chal­lenge in Texas. He had told his play­ing part­ners he was feel­ing unwell.

‘Life was­n’t always easy for Grayson, and although he took his own life, we know he rests peace­ful­ly now,’ read the state­ment from his par­ents released by the PGA on Sunday. 

‘We have spent the last 24 hours try­ing to come to terms with the fact that our son is gone,’ Eric and Ter­ry Mur­ray’s state­ment began. ‘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.’

Ear­li­er, PGA Com­mis­sion­er Jay Mon­a­han revealed how Mur­ray inspired the tour to improve its men­tal health pro­grams before his trag­ic death. 

Mur­ray was open about his strug­gles with alco­hol and men­tal health, once say­ing: ‘I’m not ashamed that I go through depres­sion and anxiety.’

Back in 2021, how­ev­er, he called out the Tour for not help­ing him dur­ing his dark days. The Tweet, which was lat­er delet­ed, read: 

‘No the PGA Tour didn’t force me to drink. But the PGA Tour nev­er gave me help. ‘In my 5 years of expe­ri­ence of being on tour not once have I ever had a request been acknowl­edged by the com­mis­sion­er or the PAC (Play­er Advi­so­ry Coun­cil) oth­er than “We will get back to you”.
