Quiros aces par-4 seventh

SAN FRANCISCO – Alvaro Quiros accomplished a rare feat on Wednesday when he aced the par-4 seventh hole at The Olympic Club.

Quiros The big-hitting Quiros used a 9.5-degree driver for the ace at the 288-yard hole. He took the ball out of the cup and tossed it into the stands behind the green.

“It was a very nice shot,” Quiros said. “It could sound a little ridiculous but it was an excellent shot, and especially because I was playing a match against Gonzalo (Fernandez-Castano) and I beat him thanks to this shot. So that’s the most important thing.”

Quiros, whose best finish in a major is a tie for 11th at the 2010 British Open, hopes the rare feat is a good omen.

“You need to have luck to play good golf, I think,” the Spaniard said. “Unfortunately, it was in a practice round. But it is a good sign, isn’t it?”
