Alvaro Quiros wins the Spanish Open in Seville

Spanish new golf sensation, Alvaro Quirós, made his 4th victory in the European Tour last Sunday at the Real Club de Golf in Seville after the first sudden-death hole against english player James Morrison.

Funny enough Quiros argued with Miguel Angel Jimenez about how this course (and most courses in Spain) are “not ideal” for him as the fairways tend to be narrower just at the 250 mts from tee area where Alvaro (normally the longest driver on the tour) tends to land.

After two reasonable rounds on Thursday and Friday, the young spaniard from Guadiaro (next to the Sotogrande area) had a great round on Saturday that made him start two under the leaders on Sunday. With the local crowds following him and even if he apparently didn’t expect to get there, he ended up on the play-off match which he won after the first hole to his 4th victory on the tour and brings him closer to what he claims is his main objective for this year… being part of the Ryder Cup team.
