Grayson Murray’s parents have confirmed via a statement released to the PGA that the golfer died by suicide on Saturday, May 25. He was 30.

Statement on behalf of Eric and Terry Murray:

We have spent the last 24 hours trying to come to terms with the fact that our son is gone. 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.

We would like to thank the PGA TOUR and the entire world of golf for the outpouring of support. 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.

Murray, the two-time PGA Tour winner died one day after he withdrew from the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas.

In a heartbreaking interview with golfer Peter Malnati following the death of fellow golfer Grayson Murray. Malnati spoke to CBS Sports' Amanda Balionis on May 25, 2024, in the wake of Murray’s death, noting that he didn't know him “all that well” but got to spend the previous two days with him.

“This is gonna be really hard. I didn’t know Grayson all that well, but I spent the last few days with him and it’s so funny…. we get so worked up out here about a bad break here or a good break there. You know, we’re so competitive, so competitive out here. We all want to beat each other. And then something like this happens and you realize we’re all just humans. This is just a really, really hard day because you look at Grayson and you see in him someone who has visibly, outwardly struggled in the past, and he’s been open about it. And you see him get his life back to a place where he’s feeling good about things. It’s just so sad.”
