Grayson Murray has passed away. He was 30 years old.

The news of his death was announced by the PGA’s Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan in a statement.

“We were devastated to learn, and are heartbroken to share, that PGA Tour player Grayson Murray passed away this morning. I am at a loss for words.”

The two-time PGA Tour winner died on Saturday, only one day after he withdrew from the Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas.

He withdrew during the second round citing an illness.

Murray won the PGA Tour in 2017 for the first time. After winning the Sony Open, he managed to reach 46th place in the world rankings, the best he ever reached in his career.

Monahan went on to share what Murray’s death meant to the PGA.

“The PGA Tour is a family, and when you lose a member of your family, you are never the same.”

The cause of death wasn’t disclosed.
