In a touching gesture, the USGA paid tribute to the late Grayson Murray at Pinehurst ahead of the 2024 US Open following his tragic death.

The sports community was in mourning following the news that the two-time PGA Tour winner had died just a day after withdrawing from the Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas. A permanent monument has been unveiled at Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina that pays tribute to the golfer’s life.




A plaque was installed in the locker room of the iconic golf course as the USGA honored Murray for his achievements in the 124th U.S. Open. This came after players gathered for the Memorial Tournament in memory of the star, who died on May 25.

A plaque at Pinehurst reads: “Grayson Murray, USGA remembers Grayson and pays tribute to his playing achievements that earned him a spot in the 124th U.S. Open Championship.” It also includes a quote from the tragic star’s parents in italics: “Be kind to each other.”

Golf legend Jack Nicklaus was among those who gathered in Dublin, Ohio, to pay tribute to Murray at Muirfield Village. The anthem “Amazing Grace” was also played as more than 100 spectators paid their respects. In a rally speech, World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler said of his late friend: “We are not meant to live on our own.

“We all carry a lot more baggage than we put on – especially me. I think we all wish we could have done more for him, wish we could have done everything differently. You know, your mind just focuses on what you could have done to prevent it.”
