Serious mourning for the world of golf: the American Grayson Murray, double winner of PGA Tour tournaments and world number 58, has died at only 30 years old. Originally from North Carolina, he was one of the best young players in the world and had been playing in the PGA since 2017. His last success was the Sony Open in January in Hawaii. He had already won the Barbasol championship in Kentucky in 2017, at the age of 23.

The cause of death has not been released, but he withdrew from the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas, explaining that he was not feeling well. Murray struggled with anxiety, alcohol and depression. “I think alcohol brought out a side of me that wasn't myself, in a certain sense, it was the monster in me,” he confessed in an interview. “I often thought about giving up, about giving up on myself, about golf, about life, sometimes.”
