Alvaro Quiros is one of the favourites to pull off a victory at the Andalucia Open in Malaga this week.
Quiros goes into the event with a point to prove following a disappointing performance in his last event, which saw him finish second last after picking up an ankle injury.
With reigning champion Louis Oosthuizen pulling out of the event with an eye infection it leaves Quiros and fellow Spaniard Miguel Angel Jimenez as the only two top 50 players in the field.
The Spaniard will no doubt be donning his favourite golf shoes for the event, which he says will put him in good stead for the upcoming Masters.
He also admitted that The Masters represents his best chance to claim a major title as the course conditions suit his style of play.
"Most of the time you need to hit the ball high to stop it on the greens and I think length is a good advantage," he said.
However, Quiros has a poor record at August as he shot a 78 and a 75 on debut in 2009 to miss the cut by eight shots. And last year a pair of 75s left him three shots outside of the cut line.
