St. Simons Island, Ga. • Chris Kirk was at his best when the wind was at its worst Friday in the McGladrey Classic.

Kirk rolled in a 40-foot birdie putt from off the green, chipped in from nearly 60 feet for birdie on another hole and wound up with another 4-under 66 at Sea Island to take a one-shot lead going into the weekend.

"Definitely shot my score on that back nine," said Kirk, who started the second round on the back. "I made a pretty easy bogey on No. 10 and it was just kind of like, 'Yeah, this is going to be a pretty tough day.' But I didn't let it bug me."

He followed with five birdies to get into the lead, and stayed there with a pair of saves — one for bogey on No. 4, another from a plugged lie in the bunker on No. 8.

Kirk was at 8-under 132, one shot ahead of Kevin Chappell (68), Webb Simpson (68), John Senden (67) and Briny Baird (70).

European Tour

Tiger Woods shot a 9-under 63 Friday to trim a six-shot deficit to one after the second round of the Turkish Open at Belek.

Woods completed seven holes of his rain-delayed first round for a 70 on Friday morning. After an hour lunch break, the 14-time major winner didn't drop a shot and had nine birdies in the second round.

LPGA Tour

Japan's Shiho Oyama shot a 4-under 68 to take the first-round lead in the Mizuno Classic in Shima, Japan, the final tournament in the LPGA Tour's five-event Asian swing. —
