Two-time British Open champion and World Golf Hall of Fame inductee Greg Norman is recovering
from a chainsaw accident that almost took his left hand off on Saturday.
He was in his South Florida home, cutting back trees when the weight of branch pulled his left hand to the saw. He said it hit him right where a person would wear a wristwatch. His doctors told him that it only missed his artery by a fraction of an inch.
"I handled everything as calmly as I could. There is no major damage. There is nerve damage, but no muscular damage. They fixed me up and here I am."
On Saturday, he posted a photo from his hospital bed showing his heavily bandaged left arm protected by a piece of purple foam. The caption says, "Working with a chainsaw ALWAYS be respectful of the unexpected. I was one lucky man today. Damaged, but not down & out. Still have left hand."
Norman said he has to keep the foam for a couple more days and the cast for a few more weeks before starting rehab.
