The PGA Tour is home to some of the most talented golfers in the world. However, golf is an incredibly humbling game for anyone regardless of skill level. And the golf world took notice of one golfer’s horrendous hold in Round 2 of the Cognizant Classic on Friday.

31-year-old golfer Thomas Detry came into the tournament sitting in 29th in the FedEx Cup Standings in what has been an impressive start to the golf season for him.

Unfortunately, his play in the Cognizant Classic was anything but impressive. Hole No. 6 in particular on Friday highlighted his struggles throughout the tournament in a truly shocking way.

Detry’s third shot of the hole was a putt to set up about five-foot par putt. So it looked like he would either save his par or at the very worst finish the hole with a bogey.

Instead, he had an absolute meltdown on the greens with the putter. His par putt went way past the whole, causing him to then miss his fifth shot for bogey

He then proceeded to lose his mind, missing two more putts from only about a foot or so to finish with a quadruple bogey in a series of events you need to see to believe.


Detry was four-over par for the tournament going into hole No. 6, well outside of the projected cut line to play the weekend. So it seems like frustration clearly got the best of him after missing the par and bogey putts.

Regardless, it is one of the more unbelievable putting disasters that we have ever seen on the PGA Tour. And fans certainly had plenty to say about it on social media.

Things didn’t get much better for Detry throughout his second round. He would finish the day with a nine over-par round to finish with the worst score of anyone in the tournament through the first two rounds.

At least he will have plenty of time to practice his putting since he missed out on the cut this time around…
