Hand Injury Forces Troup Out Of Indy Open

A day after finishing third at the PBA Players Championship, Kyle Troup tells FloBowling he is withdrawing from this week’s Go Bowling! PBA Indianapolis Open.

Following the stepladder finals Sunday, Troup said he would reevaluate how his hand felt in the morning. After waking up and being in pain, he made the decision to withdraw from this week’s event.

“It was really bad this morning, and I could barely touch my palm with my ring finger,” Troup told FloBowling. “I went to the urgent care, and he said he believes it’s tendinitis, so he gave me a steroid pack and told me to rest it, continue to ice it and that should help.”

During the first round of match play Thursday night at the Players Championship, Troup had a dramatic drop in the standings after having a sharp pain in the palm of his right bowling hand.

He battled through the pain during the final two rounds of match play on Friday and advanced into the stepladder finals as the fifth seed. However, after winning matches against EJ Tackett and DJ Archer, Troup reinjured his hand against Anthony Simonsen in the semifinal.

Troup said he felt the sharp pain again in the fifth frame against Simonsen when he threw a Brooklyn strike. From that point forward, Troup was unable to hit on the ball like he had been and faded quickly as Simonsen went on to win the match and eventually the title.

Troup still plans to bowl next week’s PBA Jonesboro Open “unless for some reason my hand is still messed up.”
