Woods on the prowl in Australia

Cheyenne Woods claimed a share of the lead at the Australian Ladies Masters on the second day after a round of 67 saw her move to 10 under par.

The 23-year old, who is the niece of 14 times Major Championships winner Tiger Woods, is tied with South Africa's Stacy Lee Bregman at the top of the leaderboard at at Royal Pines.

Woods shot an eagle and five birdies, with the only blot on her round a bogey on the par-five 18th, while Bregman produced a flawless round with six birdies, one of which was on the 18th.

England's Trish Johnson finished the day a further shot back on nine under par following a round of 66, with Sweden's Camilla Lennarth another stroke back, while England's Charley Hull and American Katie Burnett finished the second round on seven under overall.

Woods started her second round on the back nine and after shooting a bogey on the 18th, she hit a seven iron straight into the hole to card an eagle to set up a strong finish.

"Going into the turn I still felt good with where I was standing and the eagle was just a bonus," she told the Sydney Morning Herald.

"I knew I hit it really well. I know it was the right club, good distance. I saw it land and then looked away and they said 'it went in, it went in'. (It was) definitely exciting."
