Coach's Comments: He has a grin like an excited rookie freshman but a game like an experienced veteran. He has shown the team that he can play and I believe that his enthusiasm to work has motivated some of the older players to re-evaluate their own efforts. But the thing that makes Troix better than most is that he controls the driver. He doesn't waste two or three strokes per round hitting the driver in bad places. It seems that the tougher the course, the better he plays. I don't think there is going to be a long break-in period with Troix. I think this freshman will be a regular in the lineup and someone who is instrumental in elevating the team to a new level.
