Murray – citing an illness – withdrew Friday during the second round of the 2024 Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, CBS Sports reported.

PGA officials said grief counselors will be made available at all venues this week and will release more information as it becomes available.

Condolences began to pour out soon after the news of Murray’s death was made public. 

“Very sad to hear the news of Grayson Murray’s passing today,” golfer Bubba Watson posted on X, formerly Twitter on Sunday. “Life is so fragile… I was just hugging you at the Masters, telling you how proud of you I am. Thankful to have known you. My deepest condolences to his family and friends during this difficult time. He will be missed.”

Murray won his second PGA TOUR title at this year’s Sony Open in Hawaii. He played golf at Wake Forest University, East Carolina University and Arizona State University before turning professional. He won his first title at the 2017 Barbasol Championship when he was 23 years old.
