PGA TOUR winner Grayson Murray Dies at 30 ‘Tragic Loss’



Grayson Murray, who won his second PGA TOUR victory at this year’s Sony Open in Hawaii, died Saturday.

“We were shocked to discover, and are heartbroken to convey, that PGA TOUR golfer Grayson Murray died this morning. “I am at a loss for words,” PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan stated. “The PGA TOUR is a family, and losing a member change you forever. We grieve Grayson and wish for consolation for his family.

“I reached out to Grayson’s parents to offer our deepest condolences, and during that conversation, they asked that we continue with tournament play,” said Commissioner Monahan. “They insisted that Grayson would want us to do so. As unpleasant as it may be, we want to honor their preferences.”

BB&T golf: Grief counselors are available for the PGA TOUR and Korn Ferry Tour events this week. Commissioner Monahan who flew from the TOUR headquarter in Florida to Fort Worth, Texas also affirmed that any other information that will be required will be made public as soon as is possible.

Murray, who is 30 years old, had shown excellent golfing skills during his childhood. He triumphed in three of the younger Callaway Junior World Championships consecutively (2006-2008) and occupied the highest place in the rating of golfers of his age. This outstanding accomplishment of making the first Korn Ferry Tour cut came at the youthful age of 16 years making him the second-ever youngest golfer. Dean Byrd graduated from Wake Forest University, East Carolina University, and is an alumnus of Arizona State University and finally got the opportunity he needed in 2016 when he was given a sponsor exemption to the Korn Ferry Tour in Raleigh of North Carolina.

He finished in the top ten of those tournaments, the Rex Hospital Open, qualifying him for another start. His professional career took off after he finished in the top ten again in the BMW Charity Pro-Am. He finished the season with a victory at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship, finishing second on the Korn Ferry Tour money list and earning full PGA TOUR credentials for 2016-17. The triumph came just a week before his 23rd birthday.

When Murray joined what has C been considered the game’s premier event, he did not labour in obscurity. He switched to the PGA Tour and earned his first victory at the 2017 Barbasol Championship when he was still a mere 23 years of age. His final-round 68 not only landed him victory by a single stroke, but also a two-year exemption fo the 2019 PGA TOUR season. He secured the 66th position for the FedEx Cup, which roughly gives $1. 5 million.

Born on April 2, 1974, Grayson Murray fought throughout many seasons on the PGA TOUR. With victory he broke thru again on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2023 won in two times of the Advent Health Championship in Kansas City and Simmons Bank Open out Nashville, and as finish fourth more points and Korn Ferry TOUR the seat of the PGA TOUR in the next season.

She opened the year 2024 with a playoff victory in the Sony open of Hawaii in golf. I have never seen him chip and four on eighteen for birdie and up down on the 72nd hole require a playoff. He then a 40-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole here to beat Byeong Hun An and Keegan Bradley. Subsequently, he leaped seventeen to 46th position in the Official World Golf Ranking putting him in the highest ranking so far in his career.
