Alvaro Quiros is one of the former champions lining up in this week's Portugal Masters.
Not only did the Spaniard win the 2008 edition of this event, he's also attached to host venue Oceanico Victoria Golf Club. Overall, he's 7-for-8 in this event and has four further top 25s at a venue he knows extremely well. The big negative is his current form. The huge-hitting 32-year-old has missed his last four cuts and continues to be held back by a cold putter. He's down at 135th on the current Race To Dubai and showing no signs of adding to his six European Tour titles, the last of which came in the 2011 Dubai World Championship. Oct 12 - 2:46 PM

Alvaro Quiros is a former runner-up in the European Open and will have another crack when the event starts up again in Germany this week.

That second place came at the London Club in 2009 after which the tournament fell off the European Tour schedule. This week it returns but in Germany rather than England. Quiros is still struggling for any sort of consistency this season, an extreme example coming in the KLM Open a fortnight ago when he shot 67-65-77-72 to finish T66. The Spaniard followed that up with a missed cut in last week's Open d'Italia (68-73) and is a lowly 130th on the Race To Dubai heading to Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.

Alvaro Quiros heads to the Netherlands this week to take part in the KLM Open for the fourth time.

The big-hitting Spaniard is 2-for-3 in the event and 1-for-2 at this week's course, Kennemer. He missed the cut there last year but took T22 in 2013 after shooting a second-round 64. A winner of six European Tour titles between 2007 and 2011, Quiros has suffered some lean times in recent seasons and is struggling again this year at 129th on the Race To Dubai. He's missed six of his last eight cuts and not cashed since a T24 in June's Nordea Masters in Sweden.
Sep 8 - 5:33 AM

Alvaro Quiros is part of the field for this week's Omega European Masters in Switzerland.

Crans-sur-Sierre in the Swiss Alps stages the event again and, in theory, the idea of the big-hitting Spaniard smashing shots around the mountains where the ball flies further due to altitude should appeal to fantasy managers. But rather than devour the short par 70, Quiros has found it difficult. He didn't cash on his first three visits in 2008, 2009 and 2013 while he had to settle for T71 last year. At least he opened with three rounds in the 60s in the 2014 edition so perhaps it's a puzzle he's starting to crack. Two WDs in his last four events is a concern but during that run he posted a T24 in the Nordea Masters last month.

Alvaro Quiros will head to Germany for this week's BMW International Open at Golfclub München Eichenried.

A T24 at the Nordea Masters two weeks ago was his fifth top 25 of a season which continues to bubble under without actually taking off. His best remains a T15 in April's Shenzhen International in China. The Spaniard has missed three cuts out of four at this venue even though there seems no reason why it wouldn't suit him. Indeed, he opened 68-67 to sit T11 at halfway in 2010 before fading so that offers a way in for gamers expecting a big breakout performance soon.
Jun 23 - 3:06 PM

Crowd favorite Alvaro Quiros made an early impression at his home Open de España by returning a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in round one.

Quiros, who won this event at Real Club de Golf de Sevilla in 2010, ended his opening nine with a trio of birdies at 16, 17 and 18 and made further par breakers at 4 and 7. He had two bogeys, the most frustrating on the par-5 second hole. The putter continues to hold him back -- he's 165th and 192nd on the European Tour's two putting stats - and he needed another 31 swishes of the shortstick in his opener. Quiros, who sits four shots behind leader Trevor Fisher, Jr., split 8 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation.
May 14 - 9:35 AM

Alvaro Quiros heads to Real Golf Club El Prat near Barcelona to contest his 11th straight Open de España.

The big-hitting Spaniard has a curious record in this event. He scored a memorable victory at Real Club de Golf de Sevilla in 2010 but his other nine cracks at a home win have resulted in five missed cuts and just one other finish better than T37. One of those weekends off came at El Prat in 2011 when he shot 74-72 although he did play in a Challenge Tour event at this week's venue in 2006 and finished T4. Quiros has shown glimpses of good form this year and banked a third top 20 of the season with a T15 in the Shenzhen International two starts ago after closing with a 63.
May 12 - 4:32 AM

Alvaro Quiros blitzed Genzon GC for a 9-under-par 29-34=63 in his final round at the Shenzhen International in China to climb up to T15.

Five straight birdies out of the gate and further gains at eight and nine saw the big-hitting Spaniard reach the turn in just 29 and give himself a shot at the European Tour's first sub-60 round. He kept those hopes alive with another par breaker at 11 but mixed three birdies with two bogeys after that and settled for a 63. The Sunday surge lifted him 38 spots to T15 on the course where he finished solo third when it staged last year's Volvo China Open. Quiros hit 16 greens in regulation and took 28 putts.

Alvaro Quiros will have a course to suit when he lines up in this week's Shenzhen International.

Although this event is making its debut on the European Tour schedule, Genzon GC was used as the venue for last year's Volvo China Open. Quiros found its wide fairways and easy par fives much to his liking and finished in solo third place. Surprisingly, that remains his best result worldwide since he won the prestigious Dubai World Championship in 2011. The big-hitting Spaniard slots in at 96th spot on the 2015 Race To Dubai with a best finish this season of T20.
Apr 13 - 5:15 PM

Alvaro Quiros continues to drop hints about a return to form and will go into the weekend of the Maybank Malaysian Open in tied ninth after a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in round two.

He's 4-under 140 after a pair of 70s and that's seven shots off the pace. A six-time European Tour winner in his pomp, the Spaniard has been hampered by injury and loss of form in recent years but showed some encouraging form on the Gulf Swing with a T23 in Qatar and a T20 in Dubai. The putter has been the problem for the monster-hitting 32-year-old although it was warmer on Friday as he circled birdies at 10, 14, 16, one, six and seven. The frustrations remain though and two of his four bogeys came on par fives which he would normally devour.
Feb 6 - 8:40 AM

Alvaro Quiros once had three successive top-two finishes at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters but is struggling ahead of this year's edition.

The Spaniard put his name on the trophy with victory in 2009 and was runner-up in both 2010 and 2011. He's since extended that cut streak to five but modest finishes of T59 (2012) and T28 (2014) on his last two starts point to a wider malaise. The big hitter's career was stalled by injury and he hasn't been the same force since undergoing wrist surgery in November 2012. The last of his six European Tour wins came in Dubai in 2011 although there were flickers of form in 2014 when he posted three top-six finishes. That upturn in fortunes hasn't lasted though and a missed cut in Abu Dhabi last week means he's finished better than T64 just once in 11 starts.
Jan 19 - 6:05 PM

Alvaro Quiros tied for 16th in last year's OHL Classic at Mayakoba and has picked up a spot in the field this week.

His competed just twice on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14, with a missed cut in the Puerto Rico Open being his other start. His time is now almost completely focused on the European Tour, but he's struggled of late. He has missed his last four cuts. This will be a nice test of course history versus current form, as he also tied for 28th at El Camaleón GC in his only other trip back in 2008.

Alvaro Quiros readies for his first start in the Puerto Rico Open.

He tied for 16th in his only other PGA TOUR start of the 2013-14 season in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. He's slipped to 242nd in the Official World Golf Ranking, in part because of his wrist surgery over a year ago. At one time not all that long ago he would have been considered the class of this field, but now he is a bit of an afterthought.
Tue, Mar 4, 2014 09:35:00 PM

Alvaro Quiros submitted a 4-under-par 34-33=67 for his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Quiros underwent surgery on his right wrist about a year ago, so he's still recovering in the sense of rebuilding his global cachet, but he got married over the summer, so life ain't all bad. The time off helps explain why he's not at the DP World Tour Championship this week. No worries, however, as he converted an eagle and three birdies against a lone bogey at El Camaleón to open this week's stay in México. With so much rain in recent days, tournament officials invoked lift, clean and place. Quiros is already long off the tee -- he averaged 301.0 yards on the two measured drives in the lid-lifter -- but he also split 11 (of 14) fairways. That set the stage for 12 greens in regulation and an overall solid effort in course management.

Alvaro Quiros opened The Open Championship with a 6-over-par 35-42=77.

He carded only six pars, but none after the eighth hole. Elsewhere, he converted eagles on the par-5 ninth and 17th holes to complement two birdies, but Quiros also squared six bogeys and three consecutive doubles (on holes 11-13). He entered the week just 1-for-4 in this tournament (T11, St. Andrews, 2010).
