Grayson Murray, the guy who's gotten more bad press in his rookie year (for good reason) than anyone in recent memory just won his first PGA title, albeit an opposite-field event, and all the PGA Tour could post on their website was his "lucky bounce".  You see those lucky bounces all day long on Tour.  I guess he really did make himself some enemies.  It seemed to be hours after the last putt dropped before the first story appeared.  Now that he's in the spotlight a little more, here's hoping the PGA lays the law down on his behavior.  His junior and collegiate reputation makes Patrick Reed's look good and he hasn't gotten any better lately with his tweets to underage girls, caddie problems, etc..  Here's hoping that he grows up quickly now that he's finally in the spotlight for something positive.

he doesn't need to 'grow up' ... he needs to simply be a better person ... that doesn't require drugs or therapists ...

Murray just won $630,000 (the most money of his career), and gets a 2 year exemption on the PGA Tour.

I think he'll get over the lack of publicity for his win.

Murray will probably be glad of the lack of publicity. He will invariable say or do something stupid in the next few weeks, better for him that no one is looking.

Poor Tag Ridings had an iron in his hand, laying two on a par five, up by one with 4 holes to play and shanks one into the hazard eventually making a double bogey 7 to continue his streak of 0 PGA events in something like 280 starts.

I was looking for last week's thread where I bashed his dad for not raising an adult so I could say congrats on the win. I will say this - it is incredibly difficult to play good golf while your personal life is a wreck and you have conflict. Grayson is clearly a mental disaster and his life is full of conflict, if it settles down he just creates more. To have been in the position to keep his card and then win yesterday is remarkable. All credit to him, not many can win with unresolved issues like he has.

Not really... There were a few fellow players that said congrats to him.  Plus there was another tournament that kind of over shadowed this one.  Add in he is taking a break (much needed) from social media ... so saying congrats to him on there is kind of pointless.

Wait, so you wanted to root for a total jackass without an "excuse" for being a jackass, yet when you find out about his battle with anxiety, which can somewhat be attributed to his jackassedness, you no longer want to root for him? Interesting.

Anyway, I'm not rooting for the guy. But the fact that he has anxiety at least gives me reason to consider rooting for him. Anxiety and depression is a real illness. Its serious stuff.

Plenty of people with anxiety don't act like jackwagons.  There is at least a suspicion the anxiety he is claiming is a cover.  Using anxiety to try to get people to excuse his jackwagon behaviour is unbecoming, to be polite.

Only is the behavior unbecoming, if the anxiety is truly just a "cover".

Now that Camp Grayson says they've got it worked out, if he turns things around image-wise, I could root for him.

The dude went weeks or months with his front tooth missing, he's obviously got a screw a bit loose somewhere. I, for one, if it is anxiety and depression, hope he's got it worked out.

Was pulling for Tag but hey congrats to the guy. Lack of fanfare I think is mostly due to it being opposite field event, but his douchebaggery certainly doesn't help.

PGA tour needs a few antagonists from time to time.... got plenty of khakis and cliches.

Sure, but antagonists are one thing.  Ripping a guy's nationality?  load of crap IYAM...
