Tiger Woods slashed his deficit to the leaders from six shots to one with a 9-under 63 in the second round of the Turkish Open on Friday.

Woods completed seven holes of his first round in the morning for a 70, and 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.

It left Woods, who last won on the European Tour at the co-sanctioned 2009 Australian Masters, in fifth place on 11 under but just a shot behind the leading foursome of Sweden's Henrik Stenson (68), England's Ian Poulter (66), Frenchman Victor Dubuisson (65) and South African Justin Walters (66).
