Thomas Detry hasn’t missed a payday since July. The Belgian has shown incredible consistency both on the PGA Tour and DP World Tour in recent months.
Detry comes to the World Wide Technology Championship on a streak of six made cuts. That includes top-25s at The Open Championship (T-13th), Wyndham Championship (21st) and Horizon Irish Open (T-23rd).
It hasn’t been easy bouncing back and forth between continents, but it’s helped Detry evolve.
"“I’m still the same player, same person still. But, yeah, I feel like I’ve grown a lot, getting better. You know, it hasn’t been easy in the States,” Detry was transcribed by ASAP Sports in September. “It’s been a lot of traveling back and forth. But I’ve really enjoyed it, to be honest. It’s been great. It’s been a lot of fun. And it’s great to be back home.”"
The former Illinois Fighting Illini qualified for the FedEx Cup Playoffs this year and has his card for next season. He now finds himself right on the bubble to finish between Nos. 51-60 in the FedEx Cup fall to elevate his status and get into the first couple signature events of 2024.
He eschewed some of the PGA Tour fall events to play in Europe, but he’s back to try to maintain his position over the final few weeks.
Detry has played well on paspalum greens like we’ll see this week at El Cardonal for the World Wide Technology Championship. He finished T-8th at the 2023 Corales Puntacana Championship.
Detry ranked 48th on the PGA Tour last season in Strokes Gained: Putting per round (.263). He was a positive in every SG category except for Approach.
