Big-hitting Alvaro Quiros has tabbed swing coach Butch Harmon as the man to help harness his enormous talent, according to a Spanish media report.
Quiros, a six-time winner on the European Tour, has worked with Pepin Rivero for several years and will continue to do so in a different capacity. According to the report, the Spaniard and Harmon began preliminary discussions at the PGA Championship, and one of the things Harmon told Quiros was: “I do not care if your swing is fast and short; the important thing is that it is always the same.”
They will begin working together seriously in the offseason.
It’s been a disappointing 2012 campaign for Quiros, one of the longest hitters in the game. He missed the cut in all four majors, and he has only two top-10 finishes on the European Tour this season – a fifth at the Volvo World Match Play and 10th at the BMW PGA. He’s 64th on the Order of Merit.
