Thomas Detry takes early lead with stellar 63 at Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Posted : 02 February 2024

Belgium's Thomas Detry showcased exceptional skill in the opening round of the PGA Tour Pebble Beach Pro-Am, finishing with a nine-under par 63 to secure a one-stroke lead.


Detry, aiming for his maiden PGA Tour triumph, birdied the first three and last three holes at Spyglass Hill, positioning himself ahead of American Patrick Cantlay. Expressing satisfaction with his performance, Detry attributed his success to excellent driving and precision on the course, driving it far without any notable misses.


World number 99 Detry, who achieved a runner-up finish at Bermuda in 2022, opened his round with three consecutive birdies, encountered his sole bogey at the par-3 fifth, and responded with birdies at the par-5 seventh and the first two holes on the back nine.


Completing a sweep of par-5 birdies at 14, the 31-year-old Belgian matched Cantlay for the lead after birdies on 16 and 17. His remarkable round concluded with a pivotal moment on the last hole, where Detry pitched in from the greenside rough for a birdie, securing the one-stroke advantage.


Matthieu Pavon of France, coming off a recent victory at Torrey Pines, claimed the third spot with a score of 65, while Emiliano Grillo, Kim Si-woo, Rickie Fowler, and Collin Morikawa trailed closely behind.


Cantlay, the 2021 PGA Player of the Year, demonstrated his prowess by birdying the 13th hole and delivering four consecutive birdies starting at the 17th, finishing the day strong with three birdies in the final five holes. Seeking his ninth career PGA Tour title, Cantlay's sharp short game and successful midrange putts contributed to his impressive performance.


Defending champion Justin Rose, along with Ludvig Aberg, Sam Burns, Eric Cole, Justin Thomas, and Denny McCarthy, formed a pack on 68. Meanwhile, world No 1 Scottie Scheffler, who played at Spyglass, joined a substantial group on 69 as the tournament unfolded across Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill courses.
