Kelly Leaves Husky Golf Team for Pro Career
March 19, 2001
Seattle - Washington junior golfer Troy Kelly has left the Husky program to being a career as a professional golfer. Kelly was a two-time letterman at Washington. As a freshman in 1999, he finished as the runner-up at the NCAA Championships. He helped the Huskies to NCAA appearances the past two seasons.
'Troy has thought about this for quite some time and decided to begin pursuit of a professional career now, before we get too deep into our season,' says Husky director of golf O.D. Vincent. 'He has had a tremendous impact on our program two years ago and really helped to put us back on the national map. I can only wish Troy the best in his professional career.'
Kelly was a third-team All-American as a freshman at Washington. Last season he earned second-team All-Pac-10 honors. Kelly played in just one tournament for Washington this season, placing 37th overall at the Husky Fall Invitational.
