Early careerEdit

Stroud was born in Groves, Texas. He played college golf at Lamar University and was a two-time All-American. As an amateur, he won the 2003 North and South Amateur and played on the 2004 Palmer Cup team.

Professional careerEdit

Stroud turned pro in 2004. He played on mini-tours until earning his PGA Tour card at the 2006 (T16), 2007 (3rd), and 2008 (T4) Qualifying schools. He was not able to finish high enough on the money list to retain his card until 2009 when he finished 113th. His best performance in a PGA Tour event during these early years was a tie for fifth at the 2007 Zurich Classic of New Orleans. In 2013, he lost to Ken Duke in a playoff at the Travelers Championship.

On August 6, 2017, Stroud earned his first PGA Tour victory when he won the Barracuda Championship in a playoff over Greg Owen and Richy Werenski. It was his 290th PGA Tour start and he was playing on conditional status. At the 2017 PGA Championship, Stroud was near the top for the first three rounds before a final round 76 earned him a T9 finish. Prior to his win, Stroud was planning on retiring after the season.
