Tiger Woods took control of the Tour Championship in Atlanta with a stunning second round of 63.

The world number one made five birdies and an eagle, going out in 28 on his way to a 13-under total.

Woody Austin was alone in second on 10 under with a 65, with Mark Calcavecchia (66), Tim Clark (69) and title-holder Adam Scott (66) on 9 under.

Open champion Padraig Harrington shot 70 to tie for eighth place on seven under par.

Woods parred the first three holes before making five successive birdies, including a 60-foot bunker shot at the fifth, followed by the eagle at the ninth.

I just felt that the rhythm was good

"You just play shot for shot," said Woods.

"You place the golf ball and you don't worry about anything else. I didn't know I shot 7 under on the front nine. I don't know if it's a zone or not.

"I just felt that the rhythm was good."

And of the eagle, Woods said: "Pure luck.

"If you could have been right behind the ball and seen how that thing was bouncing all over the place, it was actually quite funny.

"It was left of the hole, right of the hole, left of the hole, right of the hole, and then it went in.

"I knew at that time I had a three-shot lead over Woody, and I just wanted to make sure I could increase that on the back nine.

"If felt if I shot under par I would, but two bogeys kind of derailed that."
