PGA Star Grayson Murray Probable Cause of Death Revealed

I have never been so baffled as I was this weekend while the PGA was in town for the Charles Schwab event.

Thirty-year-old Grayson Murray was having a solid event before withdrawing with only a few holes left in his round on Friday.

On Saturday, it was announced that he had died, but no cause of death was given.

Sad Day

On Sunday, I was actually on the golf course myself when the news came down regarding his death.

We had speculated that because no cause of death was given and no statement about anything nefarious taking place, he had probably killed himself.

He had a history of substance abuse and mental health issues, and sadly, our crystal ball was right.

Murray’s family confirmed on Sunday that Grayson had taken his own life.

His parents stated, “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.

“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.”

This is a young man who literally had the world in the palm of his hands, making millions playing a game for a living.

Yet, while embedded on the leaderboard on Friday, he somehow got it into his head that he needed to withdraw from the tournament, then kill himself.

I don’t mean to sound cold, but I cannot help but think that decades of entitlement and rewarding children for merely participating have created the mentally weakest generation we have ever seen in this country.

It’s harsh… but it also happens to be true. This simply should not be happening.

My condolences to Murray’s friends and especially his family, who will have to live with this pain for years to come.

But I cannot help but think that had we raised a stronger generation of children, suicides like this would not be taking place.
