PGA TOUR winner Grayson Murray passes away at 30

Murray, 30, was an outstanding golfer from his youth. He won three consecutive Callaway World Junior Championships (2006-08) and was the highest-ranked golfer in his age group. He made his first appearance on the Korn Ferry Tour at age 16, becoming the second youngest player to do so. After stints at Wake Forest University, East Carolina University and Arizona State University, he got the break he needed in 2016 when he graduated a sponsor exemption for the Korn Ferry Tour event near his hometown of Raleigh, North Carolina. He finished in the top 10 at that event, the Rex Hospital Open, which qualified him for another start. When he posted another top 10 at the BMW Charity Pro-Am, his professional career took off. He concluded his season with a victory at the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship to finish second on the Korn Ferry Tour money list and earn full status on the PGA TOUR for the 2016-17 season. The victory came a week before his 23rd birthday.
