Grayson Murray has withdrawn from the Barbasol Championship after walking off the course with three holes remaining in the first round.
Murray, who teed off the 10th, got off to a blistering start at Keene Trace Golf Club by playing his first six holes in 5-under par.
But things quickly took a turn for the worse on his back nine as he doubled the 1st, bogeyed the par-5 5th and then doubled again at the 6th.
According to Michael Wolf, president of 288 Sports, the 2017 Barbasol Championship winner sent his tee shot down the 7th into the 8th fairway and then walked off the golf course.
At the time of walking off the course and withdrawing from the tournament, Murray was level par for the round.
Grayson Murray hits his tee shot on 7 into 8fw. Decides he’s had enough fun for the week and walks off the course. Hate seeing Barbasol lose a crowd favorite so early in the tournament.— Michael Wolf (@bamabearcat) July 7, 2022
