After the two-time winner Grayson Murray passed away at the age of thirty just before the Charles Schwab Challenge, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan issued a statement.

Following the death of the two-time winner Grayson Murray at the age of 30, PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan has paid tribute to Murray.

Murray entered the Charles Schwab Challenge this week, but he withdrew on Friday during his second round.

Dan Rapaport of Barstool Sports broke the first story about his untimely death on May 25.

The PGA Tour has officially confirmed his passing.

His death’s cause is still unknown.

He cited “illness” as his reason for missing this week’s event.

“We were devastated to learn – and are heartbroken to share – that PGA Tour player Grayson Murray passed away this morning,” PGA Tour CEO Jay Monahan said in a statement.

“The PGA Tour is a family, and you are never the same after losing a member.

“We pray for Grayson’s loved ones’ comfort as we mourn him.”

“I extended our sincere condolences to Grayson’s parents, and in our conversation, they requested that we carry on with the tournament,” he continued.

“They insisted that Grayson would want us to carry out this request.

Even though it will still be challenging, we want to honor their desires.

“Grief counselors on the PGA Tour are accessible virtually for those who are not in the field and at both tournament locations.

“I’m headed to Fort Worth and we’ll provide more details as soon as we can.”

Two-time winner on the PGA Tour, Murray won the 2017 Barbasol Championship to mark his debut on the North American circuit.

Murray won the Sony Open in Hawaii in January following playoff victories over Ben An and Keegan Bradley.

Murray has had difficulties in the past and has accused the PGA Tour of not doing enough to support him in his battle with alcoholism.

But he seemed to turn around, and he had mentioned how much he enjoyed the game and felt hopeful again.
