After graduating from Mission Viejo High School in 2005, Tringale attended Georgia Tech and won the Atlantic Coast Conference championship as a freshman. He played in the 2007 U.S. Amateur Championship, where he lost his first round match. He qualified again in 2009 and reached the third round. Tringale was a three-time NCAA All-American, earning second-team honors in 2006 and 2007, and making the first team in 2009 as a senior. He qualified for the 2009 U.S. Open but missed the cut, and he represented the U.S. that year as a member of the Palmer Cup and Walker Cup teams.
In December 2009, Tringale successfully gained a 2010 PGA Tour card through qualifying school, finishing T19. He made his debut as a member of the PGA Tour at the 2010 Sony Open in Hawaii in January. In 21 starts that season, Tringale made just more than $300,000, leaving him 176th on the money list. His best finishes were ties for 11th at the Viking Classic and the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
