He had competed in this week’s Charles Schwab Challenge. He played the first round and part of the season before withdrawing from the tournament.

PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan has made grief counselors available at the tournament. The rest of the golf tournament will be played as scheduled.

“We were devastated to learn – and are heartbroken to share – that PGA Tour player Grayson Murray passed away this morning,” Monahan said in a statement. “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. I reached out to Grayson’s parents to offer our deepest condolences, and during that conversation, they asked that we continue with tournament play. They were adamant that Grayson would want us to do so.

“As difficult as it will be, we want to respect their wishes. The PGA Tour has grief counselors available at both tournament sites, as well as virtually for those not in the field. I am en route to Ft. Worth and will share more information when we can.”

Murray lived in Raleigh, North Carolina. He attended Wake Forest University, East Carolina University, and Arizona State University.

He had been a touring pro since 2015. He won his first PGA tour at the Barbasol Championship on July 23rd, 2017.

Earlier this year, he won his second PGA Tour event. That’s when he won the Sony Open in Hawai’i in a playoff.

As a Korn Ferry Tour member, he won twice in 2023. He won the AdventHealth Championship and the Simmons Bank Open. He had three total wins with the Korn Ferry Tour.

With these two wins, he received a tour card for the 2024 PGA tour season.

His highest ranking as a touring pro was 46th.
