It's good to be Tiger Woods.

Let's set the questions about the chase for Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 majors aside and ignore the fact that it would be really, super annoying to have a camera in your grill all the time like the one above.

Other than those things, it's really good to be Tiger Woods.

Woods, who just finished T41 in a middle-of-the-road European Tour event is in India on Monday for an exhibition that he's apparently being paid seven figures for.

Here's The Guardian:

"The continued commercial appeal of Tiger Woods will be endorsed this week, with golf's world No. 1 making an appearance in India reckoned to be worth a seven-figure dollar sum."

"On his first visit to India Woods will play in an exhibition match on Tuesday at the Delhi Golf and Country Club. He will feature alongside Shiv Kapur, one of India's most high-profile players who is sponsored by the Hero Motor Group, the company behind Woods's visit."

Woods was ambiguous on what he expected the experience to be like.

"I don't know. I have never been. This will be my first time so it will be fun. Then I will head back home to see my kids."

Kapur knows, though.

"Tiger's visit to India is going to make a huge impact and there is a big buzz already not only in Delhi but the whole country," said Kapur.

"I know the members at my club are very excited and there are going to be people climbing all over the walls just to get a glimpse of Tiger."

If this tweet is any indication, they've already started:
