Troy Moore

A Dayton, Ohio native, Troy Moore joined the Shanty Creek Resort team in 2021. He is currently the head golf professional and a PGA Associate at Schuss Mountain GC.

Troy's swing philsophy is inspired by Moe Norman, who emphasizes creating limitations in setup, stance and turn. This maximizes efficency and consistency within a swing. Building a better swing by understanding how to self-correct makes learning the game fun, simple and exciting for all ages and skill levels.
