Thomas Detry is looking to build on a nice debut at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship in 2021.
The Belgian overcame an opening 73 to climb up to T-22nd thanks to rounds of 66-68-70. Detry jumped 10 spots on Sunday, and it could have been more. He was 2-over on the back nine on Sunday.
There’s not a ton of room to bomb it off the tee, but Detry was able to push the envelope the most, ranking first in the field in driving distance (295.5 yards). He was also fourth in sand saves (80%).
Detry primarily played on the DP World Tour in 2022. He finished T-4th at the first Korn Ferry Tour Finals event, the Albertsons Boise Open Presented by Chevron to earn his PGA Tour card.
The former University of Illinois standout has wasted no time trying to secure his PGA Tour card for 2023-24. He took T-12th at the Fortinet Championship and followed it up the next week with T-9th at the Sanderson Farms Championship. Detry was in the mix to claim his first PGA Tour win in Mississippi, but couldn’t get it done.
Perhaps lessons learned that week will help him finish it off this time against a weaker field at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship.
Detry’s 3-for-3 making the cut on the PGA Tour this season and also has a recent T-5th at the BMW PGA Championship, the DP World Tour’s flagship event. His last start also came on that tour a couple weeks ago with T-45th at the Estrella Damm NA Andalucia Masters.
The 29-year-old ranks 13th on the DP World Tour in driving distance (299.6) and 18th in sand saves (54.39%).
