NEW DELHI (AP) - Tiger Woods made 10 birdies at Delhi Golf Club but failed to win a skins game, according to a golf website.

Golfingindian.com reports Tuesday that Woods and Hero Motors chairman Pawan Munjal lost the charity skins game to Shiv Kapur and Anirban Lahiri. Kapur played college golf at Purdue and once competed at the Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone.

Woods made his first visit to India as a guest of Munjal.

India newspapers reported Woods received about $2 million for the appearance. The event was closed to the public.

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.
