Greg Norman Recovering from Chain-saw Accident

Sunday, 14 Sep 2014 10:14 AM

Greg Norman is recovering from a chain-saw accident that nearly cost him his left hand, but not his sense of humor.

Norman said Sunday morning, "At least I can still play tennis."

Norman was cutting back some trees in his South Florida home when the weight of a branch pulled his left hand toward the chain saw. He says he was lucky the saw wasn't running full speed or it would have taken off his hand.

He posted a photo on Instagram from the hospital bed of his heavily bandaged left hand protected by a large piece of purple foam. The post said: "Work with a chainsaw ALWAYS be respectful of the unexpected. I was one lucky man today. Damaged, but not down & out. Still have left hand."
