Troup Signs Deal To Stick With Storm

One of the most recognizable faces on the PBA Tour, Kyle Troup, has signed a contract extension to stay with Storm. He confirmed to FloBowling on Wednesday afternoon the deal was for two years through 2021.

Troup, a three-time PBA Tour champion, has garnered mainstream media attention in recent years thanks in part to his colorful style and unique hair style.

Although he hasn’t won in 2019, Troup has made four stepladder finals appearances this season, including a third-place finish at the PBA Players Championship.

“I am very excited and blessed with the opportunity to further my career with the Storm family,” Troup said in a press release. “Storm was the first company I signed a contract with back in 2016. They have treated me like family and been a huge part in my success. I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”

Troup won his third career title last year at the 2018 Storm Lucky Larsen Masters in Malmo, Sweden. His first title came at the PBA Wolf Open in 2015 and his second at the 2017 PBA Doubles Championship with Jesper Svensson.

“Kyle is a wonderful ambassador for the sport of bowling on and off the lanes,” Gary Hulsenberg, Storm’s Vice President of Business Development said in the release. “He competes fiercely and treats people with respect, two things we appreciate at Storm. We are excited to continue our relationship for years to come.”
