PGA TOUR mourns sudden death of Grayson Murray, aged 30

Pro golfer Grayson Murray, who recently won the Sony Open in Hawaii, passed away on Saturday.

PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan expressed profound sorrow over Murray’s death, highlighting the deep sense of loss felt within the PGA TOUR family. Monahan extended his deepest condolences to Murray’s family and confirmed that tournament play would continue as per the family’s wishes, underscoring their belief that it is what Murray would have wanted.

The PGA TOUR plans to provide grief counseling at upcoming events and will share further details in due time.

Murray, who was just 30 years old, had an impressive golfing career that began in his youth, achieving notable successes such as three consecutive Callaway Junior World Championships.

His professional career took off after a breakthrough in 2016, which eventually led to his securing full status on the PGA TOUR. Despite some struggles in the following years, Murray made a significant comeback, culminating in a dramatic playoff win at the 2024 Sony Open. This victory not only marked his second PGA TOUR title but also boosted him to a career-high 46th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Murray’s cause of death has not been made public at this stage, although he had been open about his battles with anxiety and depression. He said in January that he sought treatment in the past few years for alcohol abuse but had been sober for several months.
