Triggs, a longtime member of Willow Brook CC, joined the TGA Board of Directors in 1970 and twice served as president of the association. While he is perhaps best known for his volunteer work in giving back to the game, during his competitive career Triggs compiled one of the state’s most impressive amateur records. He captured an amazing 55 tournament titles and was a key member of the University of North Texas’ Mean Green machine that won four consecutive NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championships from 1949-52.
