Every golfer has been where Thomas Detry was on Friday afternoon at PGA National during the Cognizant Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

Detry was trying to wrap up a par-4 sixth and had a decent birdie attempt. The shot came up short. When he putted for par, he hit it a little to the left. Frustrations got the better of him as his next attempt hit the side of the cup and bounced out. It took Detry six strokes to finish the hole.
