Tiger Woods’ slow start to the 120th U.S. Open didn’t last long.

After bogeys at Nos. 4 and 5, Woods birdied three of his next six holes, including three straight from Nos. 9-11, to climb into early contention at Winged Foot.

Woods’ birdie barrage began at the par-4 sixth, where he laid back off the tee before wedging it to 7 feet and making the putt.

A poor drive at the par-5 ninth forced another layup, but Woods holed a 30-footer from just off the green.
