Dubai resident Thomas Detry expressed that securing a gold medal at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris would be of utmost importance as he gears up to represent Belgium in the prestigious event. The 31-year-old golfer is set to compete for Belgium, currently ranked 25th in the Olympic Golf Rankings (OGR). The Men’s Olympic Golf competition is scheduled from August 1-4, featuring a full roster of 60 players. Detry, who has represented Belgium multiple times as an amateur, including thrice in the Eisenhower Trophy, transitioned to professional golf where he and Thomas Pieters clinched the 2018 World Cup of Golf. Detry’s recent performance at the US Open saw him finish tied 14th with scores of 69, 67, 76, and 70. He now primarily competes on the PGA Tour, ranking 48th in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) and 22nd in the FedEx Cup Rankings. In a PGA Tour interview, Detry emphasized the significance of winning a gold medal for Belgium, highlighting its rarity and prestige in golf, which was reintroduced as an Olympic sport not long ago. He also reflected on his previous Olympic experience, tying for 16th in the 2020 Summer Games in Japan, and his familiarity with the Le Golf National venue from his DP World Tour competitions. Likely teammate, 24-year-old Adrien Dumont de Chassart, currently ranks 45th in the OGR. Detry looks forward to immersing himself in the Olympic atmosphere, exploring the athlete village, and watching other sports, particularly field hockey, a popular sport in Belgium.
