Alvaro Quiros has disclosed that he is worried that a wrist injury will wreck his Ryder Cup debut hopes next year.

Big-hitting Spanish star Alvaro Quiros has disclosed that he is worried that a wrist injury will wreck his Ryder Cup debut hopes next year.

The 28-year-old has been troubled by the injury for the past few months, but has been putting off having surgery during one of the most busy periods of the year.

He was forced to pull out of last week’s Vivendi Seve Trophy, but is hoping he can manage the problem until the end of the season.

“We are dealing properly with it,” he told Sky Sports News. “I think I’m going to need surgery but hopefully I can finish the season before then.

“For any sportsman an injury always arrives at the wrong time, but I have to deal with it, any injury that a sportsman gets has to be fixed – simple as that.”

However, Quiros – who won the Dubai Desert Classic in February – revealed that the inevitable surgery is likely to sideline him for up to five months when he does go under the knife.

With the race for Ryder Cup points already underway, he concedes that missing such a large chunk of the season could seriously harm his chances of qualifying for the 2012 European team.

“This is what worries me most,” he said of his Ryder Cup chances.

“The doctor says healing could take between three and a half and five months before I can play again and that’s a long time obviously.”
