The controversial winner of the 2017 Barbasol Championship and the three-time winner of the Calloway Golf Junior Championships told Big League Politics he supports President Donald J. Trump and loves sharing his love of his sport with young golfers.
“I enjoy giving back to kids in need who can’t play golf without help since it’s so expensive,” said Grayson Murray, whose Barbasol win was his first win on the Professional Golf Association tour and earned him an invite to the 2018 PGA Championship tournament.
First Tee is a youth development organization that introduces young golfers to the game and teaches them integrity, respect and perseverance through various in and out of school programs, he said. The donations will be used to give scholarships to children who would normally not be able to afford to enter the program. On average, 53 percent of First Tee’s students use a scholarship to enroll.
The charity focused on young golfers said it was thrilled Grayson is helping them out with their year-end fundraising drive by matching donations up to $10,000.
“Grayson is challenging the community to join him in providing children with the same opportunity he had to play junior golf and learn the game’s inherent values,” according to the group’s website.
Murray is a 24-year-old golf pro from Raleigh, North Carolina, who said he has had nothing short of a wild ride to the PGA, turning heads for the right and wrong reasons along the way.
He went through three universities before dropping out completely to turn professional and has developed a reputation for his social media chicanery, where he has dissed international golf for being less competitive than American golf, allowing international players to rise through the world rankings more quickly, and asked Playboy model Lindsey Pelas to be his Master’s Par 3 caddie.
Pelas said yes, but Murray missed the cut.
But for his perceived lack of social graces, Murray is also known for his big heart. When he was young, he made his friend’s mother turn her car around so he could give his last $5 to a homeless person. He recently donated $10,000 to a family who was having trouble paying medical bills after reading their story online.
Murray isn’t just a Trump supporter, but rather a Trump facsimile. Each has a penchant for controversy and a passion for golf, coupled with an undeniably big heart that can’t help but shine through.
“[2017 is] the year Trump made America great again,” Murray tweeted in April.
He has also defended Trump’s comments about the dishonesty of the mainstream media.
Trump called out the American cable news media Feb. 17 on Twitter:
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 17, 2017
Trump’s Tweet came minutes after Murray caused a ruckus on Twitter, calling out fellow PGA player Bryson James Aldrich DeChambeau:
Hey @PGATOUR there should be a rule if you get a sponsor invite and withdraw after 28 holes your not allowed any other invites rest of year
— Grayson Murray (@GraysonMurray) February 17, 2017
DeChambeau had a sponsor’s invite to the Genesis Open, a tournament from which he withdrew after 28 holes due to a hand injury and Murray missed the cut.
In May, just about the time when Trump was firing James B. Comey Jr. from his post as FBI Director sending shockwaves through Washington, Murray sent shockwaves through the PGA when longtime friend and caddie Mike Hicks quit after a disagreement with Murray on the ninth hole during the last round of the Wells Fargo Championship.
Sarah Palin Considering Primary Challenge to RINO Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski
Talk about an upgrade.
Former Alaska Governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin is considering a 2022 primary challenge to liberal Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski.
Murkowsi is currently one of two nominal Republican Senators who has declined to support a tentative Trump administration nominee for the Supreme Court. She also was the only Republican not to vote for Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination in 2018.
Palin addressed Murkowski’s refusal to support conservative nominees for the Supreme Court in a set of three videos she uploaded to her Instagram page on Thursday. In subtle reference to a possible primary challenge, she pointed at her house in Wasilla, Alaska, mentioning that she’d be potentially willing to move away from the community to Washington D.C.
“If you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing this time, and at least give a fair shake to the Supreme Court nominee that your president will be bringing before you, if you can’t find it within yourself to do the right thing, … and do what the majority of Americans want you to do, to do what you were sent to Washington, D.C., to do,” said Palin to Murkowski in the video.
She referenced a notable campaign quip from 2008, when smug liberal pundits had mocked the vice presidential candidate for saying that she “can see Russia from her house.” (The assertion is more or less true, if not expressly literal- islands belonging to the Russian Federation can be seen from Alaska’s Diomede Islands.)
“I can see 2022 from my house!” said the former Alaska Governor, referring to the next election in which the NeverTrump Senator would be held to account in an Alaska Republican primary.
Palin has always been a staunch conservative, even to the point of falling out of the good graces of globalist liberal John McCain’s elite political network after the 2008 election. She’s doubtlessly be a very strong candidate in a 2022 senatorial campaign.
