(CNN)Ed Murray, the brother of actor Bill Murray, has died, according to a posting on the actor's company's verified Instagram account.

News of the elder Murray's death came in the form of a statement on the William Murray Golf Instagram account.

"It's with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of the legend Ed Murray," the statement read.

"Named after the family patriarch, it was Ed who introduced the Murray family to this wonderful game of golf — by way of caddying at Indian Hills Country Club — at the age of 10, no less.

The statement went on to read that Murray "was the recipient of the Evans Scholarship back in 1963, while attending Northwestern University — a scholarship awarded to golf caddies — a family storyline which served as inspiration for the Danny Noonan character in 'Caddyshack' when Brian Doyle-Murray co-wrote that iconic screenplay. "

"Ed and all five Murray brothers are members of the Caddie Hall of Fame, as well — something all the boys take pride in, as this game helped shape their lives," the statement said.
