Grayson Murray makes Rex Open cut
RALEIGH, N.C. -- High school sophomore Grayson Murray has made it to the weekend at the Rex Hospital Open, becoming the second-youngest player to make the cut at a Nationwide Tour event.
The 16-year-old birdied five of his final seven holes and shot a 66 on Friday for a 3-under 139. He says he "didn't have too many expectations going into a professional tournament" and is approaching the final two rounds as an educational experience.
Murray, the reigning North Carolina Class 4-A medalist, earned a spot in the tournament by winning the Rex Hospital Junior Invitational.
