Rest In Peace, Grayson Murray

Rest In Peace, Grayson Murray

Today, the world of golf is mourning the loss of Golfer Grayson Murray, a talented golfer who tragically passed away at the age of 30. As the founder of Dad Bod Summer, a company dedicated to Men's Mental Health Awareness, this news hits close to home. I started Dad Bod Summer to create a space where men could openly discuss their mental health struggles and find solace in activities like golfing and fishing. These hobbies have always been a source of peace for me, and I believe they can help others as well. Golfer Grayson Murray's death is a tragic reminder of the importance of mental health awareness.

Golfer Grayson Murray's parents, Eric and Terry Murray, shared their heartbreak, expressing how surreal it is to come to terms with their son's passing. "Life wasn't always easy for Grayson," they said. "Although he took his own life, we know he rests peacefully now." The golfing community, including his family, friends, and fellow players, is grieving deeply. Golfer Grayson Murray's death has left many questions unanswered and has deeply affected those who loved him. Grayson was a beloved figure, and his loss is a reminder of the silent battles many face.

Grayson Murray had a promising career, winning two PGA Tour events and making significant strides in his personal life. He was open about his struggles with alcohol and mental health, and his journey to sobriety was an inspiration. "It took me a long time to get to this point," he said in January. "I'm a different man now." His determination and courage were admired by many, and his legacy will be remembered for his resilience and the impact he made both on and off the golf course.

As I've spoke about on previous blogs, I'm a huge fan of Daily Fantasy Golf Tournaments on Draft Kings, and I was lucky enough to have played Grayson in all of my tournaments in January when he won the Sony Open. It was so awesome to watch him play during that tournament because you could see how talented he was. And the peak of his career was just getting started. Grayson Murray's death is a significant loss to the golf community and I think his best work was not on the golf course, but rather the hard work that he put into speaking openly about his struggles with depression & anxiety.

My heart goes out to Grayson's family during this incredibly difficult time. As someone who deeply values the importance of mental health, I understand the profound sadness and unanswered questions they must be facing. At Dad Bod Summer, we honor golfer Grayson Murray's memory by continuing to advocate for mental health awareness and encouraging kindness and support within our community. Please join me in respecting the family's privacy and honoring Grayson Murray's death by being kind to one another.

Grayson, your courage to discuss Mental Health while you were alive & with us will never go unnoticed.

Rest in Peace.
