2020 Season

One of only two players to win three times in 2020 (the other was Player of the Year Jason Belmonte), Troup doubled his career victory total in a shortened season. He won the Jonesboro Open with an impressive 290 game after converting a split in the first frame to defeat a 269 game from Chris Barnes. With Jesper Svensson, Troup won the PBA Doubles Championship for the second time in their career. With a win over Anthony Simonsen, Troup claimed the PBA Tour Finals for his third title of 2020. On top of all that, Troup was an integral part of the back-to-back Elias Cup Championship run of the Portland Lumberjacks.

2021 Outlook

He might not win three titles again – that’s very hard to do – but he’ll definitely contend regularly. Plus, considering he was able to win three titles in a shortened season, why can’t he win three or more if the 2021 season normalizes to some extent? Last season was the first time Troup earned six figures on the PBA Tour. Next season will be the second.
