Golf pays emotional tribute to tragic PGA Tour star Grayson Murray a week on from his death – as players and fans hold moment of silence at his local club in Raleigh

Grayson Murray was honored at his local golf club in Raleigh on Sunday, as a moment of silence was held for the late golfer a week on from his death by suicide.

Murray, 30, is believed to have died from suspected carbon monoxide poisoning after leaving his SUV running in his ground-floor garage.

And on Sunday, Murray was remembered at Raleigh Country Club during the Korn Ferry Tour’s UNC Health Championship, with an honorary tee time held for the hometown star.

According to reporter Peter Koutroumpis, Murray’s friend and former high school teammate Carter Jenkins tapped Murray’s big and bib before teeing off.

Murray had previously spoken openly about his battles with depression , anxiety and alcoholism.

Over the past year he had turned things around, however, by getting sober, requalifying for the PGA Tour and winning January’s Sony Open, his first victory in seven years.

That sentiment was echoed by NBC Sports and Golf Channel reporter Todd Lewis, who saw Murray throughout his career.

‘Early on in Grayson’s career, he had a lot of demons,’ said Lewis.

‘He battled alcoholism. He battled depression , battled anxiety.

‘He realized that it was okay to not be okay and that gave him the comfort to try and get counseling to put some positive people around him.’

Murray’s death came a day after he unexpectedly pulled out of the second round of the Charles Schwab Challenge in Fort Worth, Texas. He had told his playing partners he was feeling unwell.

He was then found inside his $800,000 residence around 11am ET on Saturday, according to local police.
