BELEK, Turkey — Tiger Woods shot a 9-under 63 in the second round of the Turkish Open on Friday, pulling within one stroke of the lead after trailing with six.

Woods completed seven holes of his first round in the morning for a 70. After an hour's lunch break the 14-time major winner didn't drop a shot in posting nine birdies, including three in succession from the second and in his two closing holes.

Woods is in fifth place at 11 under but just a shot behind Sweden's Henrik Stenson (68), England's Ian Poulter (66), France's Victor Dubuisson (65) and South Africa's Justin Walters (66).

Woods last won on the European Tour at the 2009 Australian Masters.
