Tiger Woods did not spend today contending for the championship at the U.S. Open, but he did finish his weekend at Pebble Beach on a high note.
After starting the day at even par through three rounds, Woods was +4 after six holes. However, he stormed back with a pair of birdies to close the front-nine at +2 before going off on the back nine.
Woods birdied four of the last six holes to finish at -2 for the day and for the weekend. His final round 69 was his best round at the U.S Open in a decade.
Right now, he’s tied for 20th place.

After missing the cut at the PGA Championship last month, this is another step in the right direction for Woods. He finished in the top 10 at The Memorial earlier this month.
Woods will have one more chance at a second major this year at The Open next month.
He last won that event in 2006.
