A 'Proud Moment for India' As Tiger Loses in Skins Game
By Torleif Sorenson on 2/4/14
In this instance, nobody can say that Tiger Woods is a sore loser.
During a private event at Delhi Golf Club, Tiger and Pawan Munjal lost a skins game match against Anirban Lahiri and Shiv Kapur. The fundraising match benefits several charities organized by the club, although they reportedly paid woods seven figures to participate in the event, which was attended by at least 2,000 spectators.
GolfingIndian.com quotes a senior club professional, Nonita Lall, as saying that Tiger had ten birdies against only one bogey. (And he still lost?)
Here's hoping that Tiger's visit spurs lots of people there — kids especially — into taking up the game.

Man the guys on Tour are stupid good. Tiger has broken 70 twice this year during events (7 rounds). Then goes to a local course (probably a high end local) and shoots -9.
I bet he would absolutely decimate the courses I play (like 59 watch almost every time he tees it up).
I've always wondered what Tiger or Rory would shot at my home course. There are a few holes in particular I would like to see a Tour player would play, including the par-4 10th (270yds) and the par-5 18th (588yds). I would love to see Rors smoke a 5-wood onto the 10th, and reach the long finishing hole in two.
(snaps to) Wait, what was I saying. I think I was daydreaming again...
I'm some what surprised the PGA tour didn't do something like that during the "These guys are good" campaign.
You and a buddy could play a round of golf at your local course with Bubba and Hunter (instert 2 B level golf stars).
I'd actually be interested in that to see how much better these guys are. I've heard rumors that on a normal public course with a normal weekend warior set up most PGA pros would be a +7 to +10 handicap. But never seen any real data to prove it.
Also I know a guy that is a +5 at his home course and never made it above the now Web.com tour (he did qualify for the US Open twice and made it to final stage of Q-School twice).
They may not want to play on some of the tracks I play on. They might get injured hitting old tree roots in the middle of the fairway. Might tear a wrist apart lol
