Rory McIlroy and Alvaro Quiros are tied for the lead after the opening round of the Masters.

McIlroy posted a 7-under 65 in one of the early groups Thursday,
then Quiros matched it in the final threesome of the day. The
long-hitting Spaniard closed with a pair of birdies, sticking his
second shot at No. 18 just behind the flag and rolling in a short
putt to pull even with the 21-year-old from Northern Ireland.

There were plenty of red numbers on the board, the golfers able
to attack the venerable course on a warm, sunny day with only a
slight hint of a breeze.

South Koreans Y.E. Yang and K.J. Choi were two shots back at 67.
Nine other players were in the 60s. Defending champ Phil Mickelson
shot 70, and Tiger Woods was at 71.
