Just an alert to all who are going for the Singapore Open.

Alvaro Quiros of Spain is coming to play. If you like to see a long hitter, watch this guy bomb the ball, he's labelled the world's longest tour player.

AVERAGES 315 yards!

Tiger Woods called him "stupid long".

His swing was featured in the October issue of Golf Magazine,
See and Read his swing sequence!

He has tremendous coil and decoil! I've seen him play on TV and it's quite scary. He outdrives his opponents by 50+ yards and bearing in mind, his opponents are pros themselves.

Imagine seeing him live! Wonder if his driver sound at impact is very much different from the other pros?

Even if you're 400 yards from the tee-box, you should still watch out for his drives heading your way affraid

His flight sure to be damn slow. Wait till green clear, then *BOOMZ*!

Wonder how many times he will pull out the big dog?

I rem him pulling it out twice (i.e. 2nd shot, driver off the deck) for a 600+ par-5 to land the green in 2 while Tiger and friends had to reach in 3. In fact, Tiger was in the flight just before his and was stunned to see it land onto the green (that's where the "stupid long" comment came from, I believe...)

WAY COOL.

His long drives haven't won him many pro championships. In fact, most peeps dun know him at all.

True, don't really care though, just wanna see him peel the urethane cover of his ball when he launches it.

He has a beautiful swing. Just look at the lag on the downswing is amazing.
