Greg Norman is one tough Aussie, as evidenced by this selfie he posted Sunday on Twitter:
Why is a photo of Norman on a golf course newsworthy? Because a little over two months ago, Norman almost lost his left hand at the wrist.
Norman was pruning trees at his South Florida home on Sept. 13 when he accidentally sliced into his left wrist with the chainsaw, nearly severing the limb. Amazingly, Norman missed the main artery by a fraction of an inch, and doctors were able to successfully perform surgery.
In less than 24 hours, the Shark was back at the scene of his accident, wearing a large protective cast on his left arm but giving the thumbs up signal with his right.
Here's his quote from the Associated Press story on Sept. 14:
"Thank God the blade wasn't running full speed or it would have taken my hand off," Norman said. "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."
