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