2013 U.S. Open scores: Tiger Woods making a move late in his 2nd round

Michael Madrid-USA TODAY

After struggling early in the round, Tiger Woods is making a run and is under par in his second round.

After being on the edge of the cut line earlier in the day, Tiger Woods is making a move up the leaderboard at the 2013 U.S. Open. Woods has birdied two of his last three holes and is now 2-over, five strokes off the lead.

Woods, who started the second round on the Merion course's back side, made the turn at 4-over, but found more success on the front nine -- especially on the par-5s. He hasn't had much success on the green thus far, but he helped to take putting out of the equation with a pair of excellent approach shots.

Woods flirted with an eagle on his approach shot on the par-5 2nd hole, leaving a tap in birdie, but then found the rough on his first two shots on the par-5 4th hole. Woods still managed to muscle it out of Merion's thick rough, though, and hit an excellent approach to card his second birdie on the front nine.

Woods is finding some success, but few other players are taking shots off their number. Only five players are in the red in the second round -- with just three players under par for the tournament. After moving to 4-under earlier in the round, Luke Donald has dropped to 1-under overall, two strokes behind leader Phil Mickelson.

Jim Furyk was in contention on Sunday of the U.S. Open last season, by the way, but he won't make the weekend this year as he's 6-over on the day and 13-over for the tournament.

Here is a quick look at the leaders and a few other notables:
