Just missed out on a maiden DP World Tour win last July, losing a play-off to Min Woo Lee at the abrdn Scottish Open.

But three places at Royal St George’s were on offer and Detry joined Lee and Jack Senior in claiming them for what was his Championship debut. He now returns thanks to finishing 25th on the circuit's 2021 Race to Dubai.

He teamed up with Thomas Pieters to give Belgium their first-ever victory at golf’s World Cup in 2018 and that came two years after an astonishing victory on the Challenge Tour.

With rounds of 60, 67, 69 and 63 he won the Bridgestone Challenge by 12 strokes on 29 under par to underline the talent he had shown as an amateur, representing Europe in the 2010 Junior Ryder Cup at Gleneagles – Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas were on the United States side - Belgium in three World Team Championships and Europe again in the 2014 and 2015 Arnold Palmer Cup matches against America’s best college players.

In both of those he partnered current U.S. Open champion Jon Rahm. Those appearances came while he studied at the University of Illinois – the same as Pieters before him – and he reached fifth on the amateur world rankings.
