Quiros achieves his goal

Alvaro Quiros gave one of the more eye-opening comments from players after an opening-round 65 Thursday that left him tied for the lead in the 2011 Masters Tournament. Quiros said his aim was to make the cut and "it would be stupid" to think about shooting 65 again. Quiros was right on target Friday. The big hitter shot 1-over par 73 to make his first Masters cut in three attempts.

3rd time's charm for co-leader Quiros of Spain

Alvaro Quiros has just two thoughts entering today. First, he plans to hit driver on the opening hole. Second, he wants to make the cut. Both of those are doable, considering the Spaniard's career round at the Masters Tournament. Quiros birdied three of the final four holes Thursday to match Rory McIlroy atop the leaderboard with an opening 7-under 65.

McIlroy, Quiros sit atop leaderboard

The international flags over the main leaderboard at Augusta National Golf Club are flying proudly after one day of the 75th Masters Tournament. On the 50th anniversary of the event's first international champion, Thursday's opening round was truly a global affair. Nine international players are among the 13 players in the top 10, including the top four.

Augusta National is the most familiar course to many golfers in the world, so imagine being a golfer good enough to qualify for the Masters Tournament but not having the vaguest idea what the course looks like.
