Grayson Murray's cause of death is revealed

Grayson Murray's family has confirmed that the 30-year-old professional golfer's cause of death was suicide. 

Murray's parents, according to Fox News, revealed this in a statement that they released on Sunday.

The statement was published by the PGA Tour:

"It's a nightmare"

The Murrays begin their statement by revealing the cause of their son's death.

"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," they wrote.

They went on to say that they "have so many questions that have no answers." But, they said that one of these question does have an answer.

"Was Grayson loved? 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," they wrote.

The Murrays concluded by asking for privacy and by thanking "the PGA Tour and the entire world of golf for the outpouring of support." They wrote, "Life wasn't always easy for Grayson, and although he took his own life, we know he rests peacefully now."


It was on Saturday that it was revealed that Murray had died. At the time, his cause of death was unreported.

The New York Post reported:

Two-time PGA Tour winner Grayson Murray died Saturday morning. He was 30. No cause of death has been disclosed. Murray withdrew from the Charles Schwab Challenge on Friday during the second round due to illness.

The outlet went on to report that Murray was known to have depression and alcohol issues. In fact, Murray had opened up about these issues in the past.

"He had been open earlier about battling depression and alcohol issues throughout his career, and said in 2023 that he had gotten sober," the Post reports, going on to quote Murray as once saying, "I just thought I was a failure. I thought I had a lot of talent that was just a waste of talent."

Murray, during his golf career, had two PGA Tour wins and 10 top-10 finishes.
