The parents of Grayson Murray, the PGA Tour golfer who passed away on Saturday at the age of 30, have issued a statement announcing that their son “took his own life.”

“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,” Murray’s parents said. “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.

According to the PGA Tour, Murray withdrew from the Charles Schwab Challenge on Friday due to an illness.

Murray had seen considerable success on the golf course after battling issues with alcoholism, depression, and anxiety. In January, he won the Sony Open and spoke openly about his struggles.

Murray was hailed as a phenom in golf at a young age.

“A solid season on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2023 saw him return to the PGA Tour, and his Sony Open victory saw him reach a career-high 46th in the world rankings.”
