Troy Cray
Professional Coach

I started golf later than most. Quickly fell in love with the game and landed a great opportunity to become Peter Egazarian's Assistant at his first Head Golf Pro position for Wahconah Country Club. Throughout those two seasons I learned a lot and went on to work for some of the top 20 clubs in the country such as Desert Mountain (14) and Ocean Reef Club (2). I had the pleasure of caddying a round for one of the greatest athletes ever in Bo Jackson and Masters Champion Jose Maria Olazabal. On a bigger stage, I caddied for Big Break's Kylie Duede in a U.S. Open qualifier. Caddying, however, has been the least of my experience during this career journey. 

 

Feeling like a jack of all trades in the golf industry I've been an assistant professional, outside supervisor, tournament director, events assistant, food and beverage manager, and last season even worked on the agronomy side! Of all the positions nothing has brought me more joy than running junior camps, programs, and hosting 2 U.S. Kids Golf tournaments as an assistant professional. Like Peter Egazarian, I share a passion for the growth of this game and its values for our young generation. I'm very excited to be with NPI!
