Report and highlights from the second round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge.
Detry briefly led with four holes to play but trailed Zander Lombard by a shot by the time he reached the par-four 17th, where he sprayed his tee shot left of the fairway and into the hazard.
The 26-year-old reloaded at the tee for another attempt - his third shot - and saw his next drive seemingly heading for the water again, only to see it take an incredible kick off a flag pole and canon back into play.
Detry was then able to pitch out from the rough with his fourth shot and two-putt to salvage a double-bogey, with the world No 161 then going on to drop another shot at the par-four last.
