By John Strege

The Tiger Woods World Tour reportedly will move from the United Arab Emirates to India next, apparently for a one-day exhibition in Delhi on Tuesday, multiple publications there are reporting, including the Hindustan Times.

The Hindustan Times, citing "unconfirmed sources," said Woods will be paid $2.2 million for the outing. Woods currently is playing in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic (he shot four-under par 68 in the first round on Thursday), where he likely received an appearance fee of at least that much.

ESPN golf writer Bob Harig wrote from Dubai that Woods is likely to pass on the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, which means that he probably won't be seen again until the Florida swing beginning with the Honda Classic on Feb. 27.
