Grayson Murray tweaks popularity of Champions tour on Twitter: ‘Does anyone really care?’

November 13, 2017

Ten days after reactivating his deactivated Twitter account, Grayson Murray is letting his opinions fly again.

On Sunday evening the 24-year-old PGA Tour pro posted a series of blunt tweets about the Champions tour, which he has since deleted.

In response to a tweet detailing Bernhard Langer’s accomplishments on the senior circuit this season, Murray replied: “Does anyone really care is the real question…These guys were relevant 10 plus years ago.”

In another reply, he conceded that the pros on the Champions tour had “laid a good foundation” for the next generation, but then added: “You will never see Phil, Tiger, Furyk ever play on it! The tour subsidizes it every year. Loses a lot of money.”

Murray has on multiple occasions tried to rein in his Twitter use, usually after one of his tweets stirred up controversy and brought him unwanted attention. He has had his agent change his password; he has deactivated his account; he has made his account private. 

“A lot of guys have to be politically correct or a sponsor will drop you, and it’s a shame,” Murray told Golf Channel’s Ryan Lavner earlier this year. “So they shy away from it. They toe the line.

“I am not one to care how much money I make if I’m not being myself. I don’t want to be a double person out here on Tour. I don’t want to be a person on social media and inside the ropes, and then another guy with my buddies.”

After Murray’s latest series of hot Twitter takes, fellow pro Ryan Palmer had a prediction for what awaits him:
