The family did not say how he committed suicide. They have asked for privacy during this difficult time.

We reported on Saturday that Murray had passed away.

It is well documented that Murray has struggled with alcohol and depression.

Murray had been competing in the Charles Schwab Challenge this weekend. He completed the first round of the tournament in Fort Worth, Texas.

He played in part of the second round of the tournament.

“We have spent the last 24 hours trying to come to terms with the fact that our son is gone,” Murray’s parents Eric and Terry Murray said in a statement. “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. We have so many questions that have no answers. But one.

“Was Grayson loved? The answer is yes. By us, his brother Cameron, his sister Erica, all of his extended family, by his friends, by his fellow players and – it seems – by many of you who are reading this. He was loved and he will be missed.”

The tournament continued. At press time, Davis Riley was the leader at -14.

“We would like to thank the PGA TOUR and the entire world of golf for the outpouring of support,” the statement also said. “Life wasn’t always easy for Grayson, and although he took his own life, we know he rests peacefully now.

“Please respect our privacy as we work through this incredible tragedy, and please honor Grayson by being kind to one another. If that becomes his legacy, we could ask for nothing else.”
