BELEK, Turkey (AP) Spain's Miguel Angel Jimenez shot a 9-under 63 Thursday for a one-stroke lead on the opening day of the Turkish Airlines Open.

Jimenez eagled his opening hole and had seven birdies in an 11-hole stretch starting on the fourth. He was one shot off the record at the Montgomerie Maxx Royal course.

England's Ian Poulter also recorded an eagle and seven birdies, but a bogey left him one shot off the lead.

Australia's Wade Ormsby, England's Tyrrell Hatton and South Africa's Brendon De Jonge were at 7 under.

John Daly shot a 67 and Colin Montgomerie, celebrating his 600th European Tour event, had a 76.
