Never change, Shark.
One day after severely injuring his left arm in an accident with a chainsaw, Greg Norman showed that he is not letting the incident get him down.
In an Instagram post on Sunday morning, Norman wrote "Thank u all for your concern & good wishes. All well the morning after the accident. Here I am at the scene of the crime... w/my new fashion statement!"
On Saturday night, Norman posted a photo to Instagram, showing him lying in a hospital bed with a pink foam cast on his arm. At the time, all we knew was what he said in his caption -- that he had an accident with a chainsaw and nearly cut off his left hand.
The Associated Press released a story on Sunday morning with quotes from Norman, who said he was cutting branches on some trees at his Jupiter Island, Fla., home when the weight of one of the branches caused his left hand to move toward the chainsaw blade. According to the AP, the blade hit Norman just below the wrist, where you'd wear a wristwatch -- and somehow it missed cutting his artery by a fraction of an inch.
"Thank God the blade wasn't running full speed or it would have taken my hand off," Norman was quoted as saying. "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."
Some of the comments left on Norman's original Instagram post and on PGA.com's Facebook page wished Norman well and implored him to hire someone to do his yard work for him. Norman said that wasn't even a consideration for him.
"When I'm on a ranch, I love to run the bulldozer, the grader, whatever. I like doing stuff. I never ask anybody to do that for me if I can do it myself," he said.
The former world No. 1 hasn't played competitively in two years and was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2007.
