Did you know?

Mark Roe retired from his 21-year touring career in 2006, and now spends more time as a television commentator and golf instructor. Lee Westwood, Justin Rose and Ross Fisher are among the many top-flight professionals he has coached. During his time on the European Tour, Roe recorded three wins, among them the French Open in 1994.

A notable event in Roe's career came in the 2003 Open Championship at Royal St George's. After the third round Roe was just two strokes off the lead, held by eventual runner-up Thomas Bjørn. However, Roe and playing partner Jesper Parnevik, had failed to swap their scorecards before play and were consequently disqualified.
