American Grayson Murray has detailed his battle with alcoholism and took the PGA Tour to task for its perceived lack of support or advice.
"The PGA Tour didn't force me to drink but the PGA Tour never gave me help. In my 5 years of experience of being on tour not once have I ever had a request been acknowledged by the commissioner or the PAC (player advisory council) other than 'we will get back to you'," Murray wrote on Twitter.
"I hope not only the PGA Tour steps up in the areas they need to step up but I also hope people are held accountable in their roles they serve."

Murray, 27, said playing the PGA Tour is "absolutely awful" and went on to reveal that he is on Tour probation stemming from being drunk in a Hawaii hotel bar.
"Why was i drunk? because I'm a f***ing alcoholic who hates everything to do with the pga tour life and that's my scapegoat," Murray wrote, adding that he has "honestly gotten a lot better since then".
The PGA Tour said the following to Golf Channel in response to Murray's tweet: "We can unequivocally say that the PGA Tour is a family, and when a member of that family needs help, we are there for him. That has been the case here and will continue to be."
Phil Mickelson directly reached out to Murray over social media.
"I'm sorry playing the Tour has been so overwhelming and if I can help in any way I'd be happy to," Mickelson wrote on Twitter.
"It's not an easy life for sure and even winning every year can bring about other challenges. FYI 'we will get back to you' is the only response I've ever gotten too."
Murray withdrew on Friday after one hole of the second round of the PGA Tour event in Blaine, Minnesota.
He cited a knee injury.
Murray, who won the 2017 Barbasol Championship for his lone PGA Tour title, has missed the cut or withdrawn in his past nine events.
