Brought up in country Victoria, the young Australian did not get into golf until a teenager but quickly gained success as an amateur, including becoming the second-youngest men’s winner of the Victorian Amateur in 2013. He also added another victory in China, at the Aaron Baddeley International Junior against a strong international field. This win gave him a start at the 2014 Emirates Australian Open.
He won his first professional title at the WA Open while still an amateur, before turning professional, with his first major test at the 2019 New Zealand Open at The Hills. His brilliant victory saw him become the first fastest rookie to win on the Asian Tour and the win gave him playing rights on both the PGA Tour of Australia and the Asian Tour.
He led from start to finish in a brilliant performance which led him on to the Asian Tour.
After the break from Covid-times, Murray returned fulltime to the Asian Tour with some solid performances including T17 at the New Zealand Open in 2023.
