Rory McIlory of Northern Ireland waves to the gallery on the 17th green during the first round of the 2011 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club on April 7, 2011 in Augusta, Georgia.

Rory McIlroy teed off in the morning and put up a score for everyone to chase at the Masters. Then, after grabbing some lunch, he plopped down in front of the television to see if anyone could catch him.

No one did -- until a long-hitting Spaniard in the last group of the day.

Alvaro Quiros, who had never shot better than 75 in two previous Masters, birdied the final two holes under darkening skies to match McIlroy with a 7-under 65 on Thursday.
