PGA Tour Golfer Grayson Murray Dies Suddenly at 30

The PGA Tour has announced the tragic sudden death of Grayson Murray at the age of 30.

His death was announced just one day after he withdrew from this week’s Charles Schwab Challenge on Friday.

The North Carolina native won his second PGA Tour title back in January.

On Saturday, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan confirmed he was “lost for words” after Murray died unexpectedly on Saturday morning.

“We were devastated to learn – and are heartbroken to share – that PGA Tour player Grayson Murray passed away this morning,” Monahan said of the world No. 58.

“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.”

It was previously reported that Murray was due to marry his fiancee, Christiana, in the spring of 2024.

He was among the field at this week’s PGA Tour event at Colonial Club, until the final holes of his second round when he withdrew through illness.

“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 (this week’s PGA Tour and Korn Ferry Tour events), 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.”

Earlier this week, Murray shot a two-under-par 68 in his opening round but was five over for his second round when he pulled out of the tournament.

Murray was a brilliant prospect, winning three consecutive Callaway Junior World Championships between 2006 and 2008.

He made his first cut on the Korn Ferry Tour at the age of just 16 and was the top-ranked golfer in his age group.

He then turned professional back in 2015 before going on to win twice on the PGA Tour.

His second and final title came in January, at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Murray tied for 43rd at last week’s PGA Championship and ended the 2024 Masters in 51st.

Grayson Murray’s cause of death has not been revealed.

No other details are available about his sudden passing at this time.
