Troup has grown up through the sport of bowling. As a child, he watched his father compete on the PBA Tour and developed a passion for competing. Though his father delivered the ball with one hand, Troup started at such a young age he needed both hands to carry the ball. He shattered youth records and was one of the youngest members of the North Carolina All Stars Team. As he grew, his two-handed style remained, and his success continued. At 18, he bowled his firs PBA Regional and by 19 he had earned his first PBA Regional Tour Title.
Troup is dedicated to his craft on the lanes but spends his time making appearances around the world representing Storm Products. In January, Troup was featured in Sports Illustrated as “The Only Professional Bowler You Need to Know.” He was the featured guest who spent the weekend at the NASCAR Go Bowling at the Glen Race where he spent the weekend meeting fans and teaching some of the racers some new tricks. He continued his travels as an ambassador for Storm through the summer greeting pro shops at Industry Trade Shows and also met with bowlers at the Underground Bowling Association (UBA) Battle Bowl. Additionally, Troup spent Memorial Day weekend at the Storm Youth Championships in Smyrna, Tennessee. He helped educate young bowlers through our Q&A and seminars. He also spent time with the families playing whiffle ball at a party for all the participants at the park. He helped make the experience more meaningful for all the families who were in attendance and parents agreed that he was a great ambassador for the sport.
