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.

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.

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).

Alvaro Quiros makes his fifth appearance in The Open Championship at Muirfield this week.

The Spaniard should be in good spirits, as he was recently married. Since making his first start in The Open in 2009 he's never missed a start, but has missed three of four cuts. The lone triumph was an 11th in 2010 at St. Andrews. Given St. Andrews has a history of being kind to those that can bomb it over the trouble, this makes sense. With Muirfield expected to be a chess match, it will be interesting to see how he acclimates himself.

Alvaro Quiros enters the World Golf Championships–HSBC Champions on a dry spell, and needs a spark to save an otherwise disappointing 2012.

Quiros has missed eight of his last 10 cuts worldwide, with a T43 at the WGC-Bridgestone the high point. He ended 2011 with a win at the Dubai World Championships, but has managed only two top 10s this season. He still maintains a respectable 75th ranking in the Official World Golf Ranking. Acknowledging a need for improvement, he will begin working with Butch Harmon in the offseason, as if there is such a thing in golf.

Alvaro Quiros will take part in his fourth World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational this week at Firestone Country Club.

The Spaniard’s previous best finish was a T15 in 2009. This will be his seventh event of 2012 in an event recognized by the PGA TOUR. His best finish is technically a T33 at the WGC-Accenture Match Play but that essentially means he lost in the first round. A T40 at TPC Sawgrass is his best in stroke play.

Alvaro Quiros will take part in his fourth U.S. Open this week at Olympic Club, but thus far he has been unable to cash.

The long-hitting Spaniard has posted consecutive top-10 finishes in Europe, but other than that it's been a bit of a disappointing season. In his trips to the United States, he bowed out in the first round of the Accenture Match Play, finished T57 at Doral, missed the cut at Augusta National and ended his week at THE PLAYERS in a tie for 40th.

Alvaro Quiros' fourth trip to the Masters proved to be his most disappointing as he finished the week at 11-over 155 to miss the cut by six strokes.

The Spanish bomber made two double bogeys and on triple bogey in his two loops around Augusta National. He had to deal with five, three putts and was only able to land 19 (of 36) GIR. He is not in the field for the RBC Heritage.

Alvaro Quiros will play in his first stroke-play event in the United States of 2012 in this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

After winning the Dubai World Championship late in 2011, Quiros has kept a fairly light schedule. He last played in the WGC-Match Play, where he was bounced in the first round. He has not finished higher than a tie for 37th in a stroke-play event since his victory in Dubai. He is paired with Kyle Stanley and Gary Woodland in the opening two rounds in what is sure to be the longest threesome on the course.

Alvaro Quiros recorded a two-stroke victory at the European Tour's season finale -- the Dubai World Championship.

The Spaniard grabbed control of the lead after a bogey-free, 8-under-par 64 in his second round and didn't let go. He'd complete 72 holes in 19-under 269. Paul Lawrie earned solo runner-up honors at 17-under 271. This is Quiros' second victory of the year (Dubai Desert Classic) and exempts him into the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. He now has six career wins on the European Tour, half of which have occurred in the Middle East; he won in Qatar in 2009. The triumph today at Jumeirah Golf Estates vaulted him to sixth in the final Race to Dubai ranking. As a result, he's now exempt into the WGC-Cadillac Championship and British Open. The top 20 in the R2D gain entry into the WGC while the top 30 can book tee times at the major. Quiros will soon become eligible for the Masters as well. He zoomed to 21st in the world ranking today; the top 50 in the final edition of 2011 earn exemptions.

Alvaro Quiros signed for a 5-over-par 35-40=75 following his opening round of the British Open.

Quiros was a mild question mark to tee it up this week after withdrawing early from last week's Scottish Open due to a sore shoulder. And he may not be in full health yet either. The long-hitting Spaniard split nine (of 14) fairways but hit only seven greens in regulation. He enjoyed an eagle and two birdies, but also coughed up three bogey and a trio of doubles.

Alvaro Quiros has elected not to compete in this week's Scottish Open due to a shoulder injury.

We're hoping that this is merely a precautionary measure on the eve of the British Open, but the long-hitting Spaniard was considered an early favorite given the generous fairways at Castle Stuart. He missed the cut at last week's French Open by two strokes.
