He Golf It is one of the most pleasant and at the same time most unpleasant sports in the world. And to find a good example of the latter, just look at the 20 seconds (neither one more, nor one less) experienced (or suffered) by the Belgian Thomas Detrylocated in position 70 in the rankings of PGA Tour.

The Brussels native was looking to advance to the second round Conscious classic, a competition that takes place in Palm Beach, Florida, and offers $9 million in prizes. The 31-year-old blonde had a tough time after shooting a 73 on the first day, two over par.

The start hadn’t been very promising, with bogeys on 1 and 5, and Detry was there, in front of hole 6, where the previous day he had taken a double bogey. It had to be improved. But golf, sports and life in these cases have a Murphy’s law: “Nothing is ever so bad that it can’t get worse.”

On that par-4 sixth hole (461 yards), Detry hit it with solvency off the tee a large iron who left the ball in the heart of the pitch, 162 meters from the flag.

Things improved on the second shot, with another good contact passed a bunker and placed the ball on the green, offering the possibility of a birdie, five feet from the target.

Detry’s dream lasted like a sigh and ended up turning into a real nightmare: he failed to make birdie, he relied on par and continued to miss again and again until the ball ended up falling into the blessed hole, decreeing an embarrassing +4 this would end up making their early farewell irreversible.

Detry also awaited Bogeys on 7 and 8, birdies on 10 and 13, double bogey on 14 and a farewell in line with the Belgian golfer’s forgettable afternoon, bogey on 18.

He was +9 in that second round, or +11 overalla card that is an invitation to pack your bags and say goodbye until the next tournament.
