Tiger Woods launched a stunning back-nine charge to climb to within one shot of Australian Stuart Appleby’s lead on day two of the US Open. Woods, the 13-time major champion, ignored knee pain to fire 68, including a back nine of 30, to reach two under. American Rocco Mediate and Swede Robert Karlsson were also two under with Lee Westwood and Spain’s Miguel Angel Jimenez among those one under. Luke Donald and Ernie Els were level par but Phil Mickelson slipped back. Local favourite Mickelson, who has had four US Open runner-up finishes, carded a 75 alongside Woods to drop to four over on the par-71, 7,643-yard Torrey Pines South course near San Diego. Jimenez, the PGA Championship winner at Wentworth last month, fired the round of the day, a 66, while Open champion Padraig Harrington shot 67 to better his opening score by 11 strokes and climb back into the mix at three over. England’s Oliver Wilson briefly shared the lead with Mediate before ending in a group on one over. Woods, who appeared to limp at times, said his knee was sore but added: “I’ll be good to go tomorrow.”                                                                       ___________________________________________________________________________________
