CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Ed Murray, brother of actor/comedian Bill Murray, died at 76.

Ed caddied at Indian Hills Country Club at the age of 10 and would go on to receive the Evans Scholarship, a scholarship awarded to golf caddies, in 1963, while attending Northwestern University.

His story would serve as an inspiration for the Danny Noonan character in ‘Caddyshack’ when Brian Doyle-Murray co-wrote the screenplay.

Ed and all five Murray brothers are members of the Caddie Hall of Fame.

William Murray Golf released a statement that called Ed ‘true family man and a gentle, sweet soul.’

They said they will honor his memory from this day forward.
