PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — Palm Beach Gardens police have launched an investigation into professional golfer Grayson Murray's death.

Police said Murray's body was found in a home at approximately 11 a.m. on May 25. Just one day prior, Murray had withdrawn from the Charles Schwab Challenge, citing an illness.

Murray's parents confirmed to the PGA Tour that the 30-year-old "took his own life."

The initial investigation did not reveal any signs of foul play, Palm Beach Gardens police said.

Police added that no further information will be released during the investigation.

The 30-year-old golfer won three consecutive Callaway Junior World Championships and became the top-ranked golfer in his age group. When Murray was 16, he made the first cut on the Korn Ferry Tour, and became the second-youngest player to achieve the victory.

Murray would later go on to Wake Forest University, East Carolina University, and Arizona State University, before he got his break in 2016 gaining a sponsor’s exemption into the Korn Ferry Tour near Raleigh, North Carolina — his hometown — the PGA Tour said.

Murray was able to earn full status on the PGA Tour for the 2016-2017 season.
