Tiger Woods lost on Tuesday and it was 'a proud moment for India'
Tiger Woods played an exhibition on Tuesday with his friend Pawan Munjal and got beat, but he said he'd be back.
Tiger Woods and Pawan Munjal were beaten in a skins game on Tuesday in India by Anirban Lahiri and Shiv Kapur at the Delhi Golf Course in India.
The Golfing Indian called it "a proud moment for India."
It also noted that the funds raised during the match woud go to golf charities under the Delhi Golf Club.
I'm sure Tiger, who was invited by Munjal, cares very little about the outcome of the match given that he was reportedly earning seven figures to play the exhibition.
Woods said it was one of the narrowest courses he's ever played and that he wants to come back to India someday.
Interestingly Ashish Bharat Ram, one of the country's "top corporate golfers" and a member of the prestigious Bharat Ram family told Golfing Indian he's glad Tiger will return to India someday and thinks he has an obligation to places where golf is still developing.
"I think guys like Tiger, Phil, Rory can also gain a lot by building an Indian fan base beyond what exists today. Leave aside the state of our economy today, when things improve this will be a big market and from just their perspective it will be something that they will gain from.
"Plus, I think every big star owes this to emerging golf markets so as to encourage the development of the game."
I'm fascinated to see where this goes. Not just with Tiger but with other stars as countries like India and China develop their youth golf programs and start to churn out elite professionals.
I don't necessarily think Woods (or anyone) has an "obligation" but I think it's fantastic when they help build the sport all over the world.
