“Trust in the process and keep working hard.”

Those were some of the thoughts Kyle Troup shared with our team after he qualified for the PBA Players Championship Finals and was preparing for the major event. He spent the weeks dedicated to the routine that he has developed in the off-season. Training off the lanes in the gym, staying committed to his mental work, and staying dedicated to his practice on the lanes.

Troup rolled a three-game series of 741 to earn the top seed in the seeding round which streamed live on FloBowling on Saturday.

“I tried to just stick to the process,” Troup said. “I felt really confident coming over for those 10 shots and this match.”

Troup came in for the championship match and admitted that it didn’t start the way he wanted but he stayed focused and dug deep.

“I just told myself to keep my mind forward and my eyes forward. Keep working, keep pushing, believe in yourself.”

In the end, Troup bowled a 257 game to win the PBA Players Championship for his first career major title and the $250,000 first prize, defeating Dick Allen. Kyle Troup used a Roto Grip IDOL Synergy to win the title. This was the same ball he used in the East Region Final.

“It’s an unbelievable feeling,” said Troup in the official PBA release here. “Hard work pays off. I felt very confident in my ball reaction and the angle I was playing. I didn’t really feel nervous at all. I stayed focused and the pressure and the nerves kind of went away.”

This title qualifies Troup for the PBA Super Slam which will feature all five 2021 major winners in a broadcast on FOX on April 18.

The PBA Tournament of Champions begins this week at Bowlero Jupiter and will be streamed live on FloBowling, February 23-26. The stepladder finals will air live Sunday, February 28 at 1 pm Eastern Time on FOX.
