Thomas Detry had a WILD back nine during European Tour tournament

Thomas Detry produced a back nine that all amateur golfers could relate to during the final round of the European Tour's Austrian Open last week.

The Belgian star had got off to a brilliant start during Sunday's final round, starting his day with an eagle, before adding two birdies to the scorecard and one bogey, to make the turn at 3-under par.

Unfortunately for Detry, the back nine was far less impressive, shooting 13-over par in just nine holes, to end the round 10-over par.

Detry made a bogey at the par-4 10th hole and recorded his only par of the back nine at the next hole, before a double-bogey 6 sparked the first of seven crazy holes for the 28-year-old.

After making a 6, Detry's scores coming into the clubhouse were 3, 10, 4, 4, 5 and 8, numbers that wouldn't look out of place on a 20 handicapper's score card.

European Tour star and Twitter funny man Eddie Pepperell couldn't help himself after seeing Detry's final nine holes at the Austrian Open, the Englishman demanded some answers on social media.

"He’s generally having a good time of things on the course, and he’s a terrific player, so I don’t feel too bad about asking this publicly; Tom Detry, talk us through it," read the tweet.

Detry fortunately saw the funny side of his nightmare nine holes and was quick to respond to Pepperell: "Get your glass of red ready Eddie! It might take a while..."
