An American professional ten-pin bowler, Kyle Troup (born June 11, 1991) now lives in Taylorsville, North Carolina. Using a dominating right hand, he employs a two-handed shovel-style delivery. A self-taught thrower, Troup says he required two hands to learn how to toss the ball as an infant.
After joining the Professional Bowlers Association in 2008, Troup became a full-time member of the PBA Tour full-time in 2015. PBA Wolf Open 2015 was his first national PBA Tour title and he has since won eight PBA Tour championships, one of which is the 2015 PBA Wolf Open. Troup has been a part of Team USA since the beginning of 2018.
At the PBA playoffs on May 16, 2021, Troup surpassed Walter Ray Williams Jr.’s record of $419,700 earned in the 2002–03 season with his $100,000 victory.

Kyle Troup’s Net Worth:
As the son of Guppy Troup, a long-time professional bowler, I was meant to be a championship bowler. I began bowling when I was two years old and by the time I was five, I was using a ten-pound ball. I used two hands to move the ball along the lanes. Two-handed bowling is a technique that has stayed with me. I am an untrained two-handed bowler. In Hickory, NC, I bowled in several young leagues and competitions, breaking numerous youth records. I became one of the team’s youngest members, bowling in competitions around North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. While I liked my time as a young bowler, I was itching for the next level of competitiveness and switched to adult bowling at the age of sixteen.
I began bowling in scratch competitions around North Carolina, defeating bowlers twice my age. That’s when I decided to give the PBA a go. I bowled my first PBA regional at the age of 16 and won my first tile in the Fort Jackson Non-champion Regional in 2010 at the age of 19. I added eight additional regional championships to my resume, as well as the distinction of being awarded the PBA Southern Region Player of the Year in 2013 and 2014. The cherry on top came on May 11, 2015, when I won the Wolf Open, my first PBA National Title, in front of my entire family. This is a victory I will never forget, but the greatest is yet to come, in my opinion.
I spend a good deal of time in my spare time bowling and watching sports, whether basketball, football, or golf. At some time, I’d like to learn how to play golf properly. Panther Nation is an excellent place to call home. You’ll find me grooving out to whatever song is playing on the radio, and I’m never without my hair picking at my side to maintain the afro.

Personal Life :
As Guppy Troup’s son, Kyle Troup has become just the fourth father-son duo to win PBA Tour titles at the same time (following Dick and Pete Weber, Don and Jimmy Johnson, and Don and Eugene McCune).
Because to his retro Afro haircut, Partridge Family bus-styled outfit, and other unusual pants, Troup has become one of the most well-known players on tour, much like his colourful father. “Afro Fish,” “The Pro with the Fro,” and “Bob Ross of Bowling” are just a few of Kyle’s Tour nicknames.
After being eliminated from the 2019 PBA Tour Playoffs in the second round, Troup joined Jason Belmonte and the usual PBA broadcast crew of Rob Stone and Randy Pedersen to give commentary for the last four and championship finals live broadcasts (aired on June 1 and 2 on Fox).
