Since the beginning of April, Thomas Detry has played five tournaments on the PGA Tour. In those five events just mentioned, Detry accumulated three top eight finishes, including an impressive fourth place result at last week’s 2024 PGA Championship.

Due to Thomas Detry’s outstanding finish at the 2024 PGA Championship I decided to take a close look at the relevant player statistics for the event to see how Detry fared relative to the field.

Lee Hodges arrives at this week’s event on the heels of two consecutive top 24 finishes on the PGA Tour, including a 12th place result at the 2024 PGA Championship.
