One of the game’s best ball strikers took a step last week at the U.S. Open to shore up his occasionally suspect short game.
Roe and Mahan first talked in April at the Masters, but didn’t formally begin working together until June 10 in San Francisco. Justin Rose credited Roe, the emerging swing guru, following his victory at the 2011 BMW Championship
Mahan’s swing coach Sean Foley suggested he meet with Roe, and despite Mahan’s tie for 38th at the U.S. Open, he was encouraged by his work with the Englishman.
