Tiger plays charity skins in India
Birdies & Bogeys: Read Between The Lines
Clearly Tiger Woods and Hank Haney aren't the best of friends anymore and that spat has turned somewhat public in recent weeks, writes Bob Harig. Story
NEW DELHI -- Tiger Woods made 10 birdies at Delhi Golf Club but failed to win a skins game, according to a golf website.
According to a Golfingindian.com report on Tuesday, Woods and Hero Motors chairman Pawan Munjal lost the charity skins game to Shiv Kapur and Anirban Lahiri. Kapur played at Purdue and once competed at the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone.
India newspapers reported Woods received about $2 million for the appearance. The event was closed to the public.
Woods made his first visit to India as a guest of Munjal and later tweeted about it.
Great day of golf. Hopefully this visit, in some small way, helps grow the game in this amazing place. http://t.co/2sxRITkmRp- Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) February 4, 2014
In a video posted on the website, Woods says Delhi Golf Club was the narrowest course he has ever played and that he was nervous on some of the tee shots. Woods says he hopes the exhibition helps junior golf in India.
