NAT030 – (SPORTS-GLF-Murray’s-Death)
FORT WORTH, Tx. x–13s. Grayson Murray’s parents say their 30-year-old son took his own life. The American pro-golfer died Saturday, one day after he withdrew from a P-G-A Tour event already underway at Colonial in Texas. Eric and Terry Murray are asking for privacy and that people honour their son by being kind to one another. Fellow pro-golfer Webb Simpson knew Murray for most of his life and remembered his friend.

TAG: Murray’s death came at a time when he appeared to be on track with his life and his golf. He had been open about his struggles with mental health and alcoholism. He said when he won the Sony Open in January, he’d been sober for the last eight months.
