Player of the Year Award

2021 Player of the Year: Kyle Troup

On the strength of winning two Guaranteed Rate PBA Tour titles and setting the all-time single-season earnings record, Kyle Troup was named the 2021 Chris Schenkel PBA Player of the Year.

In 2021, Troup won the season-opening PBA Players Championship for his first major title, banking a PBA record-tying $250,000 first prize for the win. Troup also won the PBA Playoffs for his eighth career title, tying the total his father, Guppy, amassed on the PBA Tour.

Troup competed in 16 events and led all players in competition points (19,922.5) and earnings ($496,900), breaking the previous PBA record of $419,700 set by Walter Ray Williams Jr. during the 2002-2003 season.
