DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Tiger Woods is making his first visit to India next week to play an exhibition with a top business executive.

Woods said he will be the guest of Pawan Munjal, the CEO and managing director of Hero Motor Group, which makes motorcycles and scooters. They are to play an 18-hole match on Tuesday at Delhi Golf Club, which has hosted the Indian Open.

Munjal first met Woods when visiting the Tavistock Cup in Orlando, Florida. Woods also is close to India native Arjun Atwal, a U.S. PGA Tour winner.

Woods has been conducting corporate outings in Asia and Australia for the last couple of years. The Hindustan Times said the event would not be open to the public.

Woods shot 73 in the Dubai Desert Classic and was tied for 44th in the second round on Friday.
