Trump-supporting golf pro Grayson Murray raises funds for young golfers

Published

on

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:

Trump’s Tweet came minutes after Murray caused a ruckus on Twitter, calling out fellow PGA player Bryson James Aldrich DeChambeau:

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.

New Mexico Bureaucrat Arrested for Vandalizing State GOP Headquarters

Cameron Chase McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s Democratic governor.

Published

A New Mexico state employee heavily connected to the state Democratic party is being charged with vandalizing the Republican Party’s headquarters in the state.

Cameron Chase McCall was arrested Thursday in relation to spray-paint vandalism of the Republican Party offices in Albuquerque. The Expo New Mexico employee was caught on surveillance cameras spraying the words “still traitors” on the building.

Republican Party officials say the vandalism will cost more than $4,000 to repair.

A quick look into McCall’s background shows his motives to be readily apparent. McCall is a former intern for New Mexico’s liberal Democratic governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, when she was a member of congress. She condemned her intern’s behavior in a statement released following his arrest.

Albuquerque police are also investigating if McCall is responsible for a closely similar incident back in March, when the same Republican Party offices were spraypainted with the word “traitors.” Sources indicate that the same kind of spray paint was used in both incidents. The initial act of vandalism inspired Republicans to install cameras at the offices, which proved crucial in identifying McCall as the culprit of the latest political crime.

Expo New Mexico is a state-run convention center in Albuquerque. A Bernalillo county judge identified McCall as a “sponsorship coordinator” for the venue during his initial appearance in court on Thursday. McCall was suspended from his job following his vandalism arrest, and officials with the entity state that he’ll be fired if he’s convicted of the charges.

McCall has been released on bond to await trial. He’s one of several political zealots to make national news recently for acting on their hatred for the Republican Party by committing crimes.
