Thomas Detry’s final round at the Austrian Open was colorful. The story? ‘It might take a while.’


Thomas Detry was even par through 54 holes of the Austrian Open. By the end of the day Sunday, however, Detry had fallen 34 spots on the leaderboard and was 10 over.

His scorecard tells some kind of story.

Fellow European Tour player Eddie Pepperell called attention to the colorful card on Twitter, asking Detry to simply “walk us through it.”

Detry’s response? “Get your glass of red ready Eddie! It might take a while…”

Playing at Diamond Country Club near Vienna, Austria, Detry, of Belgium, opened with eagle at the par-5 first and added birdies at Nos. 3 and 7. Back-to-back bogeys followed at Nos. 9 and 10. The back nine was a wild ride.

Detry made double at No. 12 followed by a birdie on No. 13. The two par 3s, Nos. 14 and 18, he played in a total of 12 over – making a 10 on No. 14 and following with an 8 on No. 18. In addition there was another bogey at No. 17 and also three birdies.

All that added up to an 82, his highest score of the week by 10 shots.

Sometimes it’s your day, and sometimes it isn’t.
