PGA golfer Grayson Murray had a quick weekend at the 3M Open in Blaine after pulling out of the tournament on Friday with a knee injury. But not long after, Murray took to his Twitter account to bash the tour for not caring about its players.
"The tour not once in my 5 years of being a member has reached out to me with advice or help on how to deal with the life of becoming a PGA tour pro," Murray said. "All they want to do is pour money into the top 10 guys they promote."
Murray went on to say that he was put on probation by the PGA Tour for an incident stemming from a hotel bar in Hawai'i earlier this season. Murray later admitted he was "an alcoholic that hates everything to do with the PGA tour life."
Phil Mickelson was among several golfers that offered support to Murray as a response.
The PGA Tour issued a statement in response to Murray's comments on Saturday.
"We can unequivocally say that the PGA TOUR is a family, and when a member of that family needs help, we are there for him," the tour said. "That has been the case here and will continue to be."
Murray shot a 73 in the first round of the 3M Open on Thursday but withdrew after a double bogey on the first hole. Murray has four career wins but has just one top-10 finish this year at the Puerto Rico Open in February and injuries have helped him drop outside of the world's top 450 golfers.
