Thomas Detry, born January 13, 1993, is a Belgian professional golfer making his mark on both the European Tour and PGA Tour. Before turning pro in 2016, Detry carved a path as a highly-ranked amateur. He reached No. 7 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. During his time at the University of Illinois, he clinched the 2016 Big Ten Championship title and earned the prestigious Big Ten Golfer of the Year award in 2015. He also proudly represented Team Europe in the 2014 Palmer Cup and his home country Belgium at the World Team Amateur Championship.


Detry transitioned seamlessly to professional golf in June 2016, starting his journey on the Challenge Tour. He impressively made the cut in his first 10 professional tournaments. This impressive streak culminated in a dominant victory at the 2016 Bridgestone Challenge. Detry tied the record for the lowest recorded under-par finish (29 under par, achieved by Ivó Giner in 2003) and established a new record for the largest margin of victory (a staggering 12 strokes ahead of the second-place finisher). He cemented his dominance by breaking the course record at Heythrop Park Resort with a remarkable first-round score of 60 (12 under par).


Detry's play quickly propelled him to the bigger stages – the European Tour and PGA Tour. While he doesn't boast any European Tour wins yet (as of June 2024), his competitive spirit is undeniable.


Who is Thomas Detry’s caddie?

Belgian professional golfer Thomas Detry has enlisted the help of an experienced caddie Lee Warne, who has previously worked with golfers such as Nicolai Hojgaard, Scott Jamieson, Lee Westwood, and Branden Grace.


Lee Warne, who notably assisted Swedish pro Alex Noren during four victories in 2016, including wins at the Scottish Open, European Masters, British Masters, and Nedbank Golf Challenge, previously worked as a greenkeeper at the venue for the BMW PGA Championship. His local knowledge came to good use when he helped Noren set a new final-round course record of 62 and win the tournament. Their partnership also saw Noren's victory at the 2018 Open de France at Le Golf National, the site of the 2018 Ryder Cup. With this experienced caddie on board, Noren contributed two points from three matches in the 2018 Ryder Cup, where he was part of Thomas Bjorn's 12-man roster.
