Grayson Murray snaps club, throws putter during brutal final round at U.S. Open

·2 min read

The Country Club got the best of Grayson Murray on Sunday.

Murray had a bit of a meltdown during his final round at the U.S. Open, and lost at least one club in the process.

Murray, after opening with a birdie and going even through six holes on Sunday, made a triple-bogey on the par-4 seventh. After he tapped in his final putt, Murray picked up his ball and then tomahawk whipped his putter off the green angrily.

Then on the 10th, Murray missed his approach and landed just short of a greenside bunker. Frustration brewing, Murray took a few steps and then snapped his iron over his knee.

Though he salvaged the putter, the iron was done for.

Murray duffed a chip after that, too, and finished the hole with a bogey. Murray ended his day with a 10-over 80, which brought him to 18-over on the week and down to 63rd on the leaderboard.

This week marks the second U.S. Open for Murray, and it’s actually going better than his first appearance, believe it or not. Murray missed the cut back in 2013 after posting a pair of rounds in the 80s, though he was playing as an amateur. The 28-year-old has won once on the PGA Tour, back at the 2017 Barbasol Championship, and he’s made the cut just three times in six appearances on Tour this season. His best finish came at the Mexico Open, where he went T13.

Murray, however, is clearly ready to forget Sunday’s round outside of Boston.
