Detry started strong and is currently in 9th place after shooting a round of 69, 1 under par. Although he made mistakes on the 2nd and 4th holes, he managed to recover with a birdie on the 5th hole. He maintained par on the next 7 holes and then birdied the 13th hole to get back to par. A highlight of his round was sinking a 14-meter putt on the 14th hole.
