Murray’s parents, Eric and Terry, confirmed his cause of death in a statement released through the PGA Tour on May 26.

"We have spent the last 24 hours trying to come to terms with the fact that our son is gone," they wrote. "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," Eric and Terry continued. "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. He was loved and he will be missed."

"Please respect our privacy as we work through this incredible tragedy, and please honor Grayson by being kind to one another," Murray’s parents added. "If that becomes his legacy, we could ask for nothing else. Thank you."

Murray withdrew from the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas, on Friday, May 24, and was found dead shortly after.
