US Open: Tiger Woods begins his hunt at Pebble Beach

"He had an amazing finish and I was in position to do the same, hanging in and posting under par."

Woods and Rose tied as Thursday's fourth-best scramblers for par, doing so on 8 of 9 holes. And Woods' putter kept himself in red numbers (albeit 1-under par) by making all 11 putts inside 5 feet and 4 of 5 inside 10 feet.

When Woods made a par-saving putt on hole No. 2, it was more than enough to appease a green-side fan, who said aloud: "That was worth an-hour-and-a-half standing here."

As for Woods' par-save on 14, his bomber putt came after his approach found the front bunker, and his ensuing sand shot sailed over the green.

"The only mistake I made was probably at 14 trying to carry that ball back there to the flag, and I clipped it and dumped my ball in the center of the green," Woods said. "I tried to make my bogey but happened to make a putt."

 

And make par.
