Usually professional golfers only slice it when they want to slice it. This time, however, Annika Sorenstam sure wishes she had control over a slice.

The former No. 1 player in the world on the ladies side, a winner of 72 events on the LPGA Tour including 10 majors, cut off the tip of her left, index finger while cutting up some chicken, cooking for friends on Jan. 3.

Sorenstam tweeted a gruesome picture of the finger, which required five stitches, today.

We can't stomach looking at the picture again, but if you feel the need to see it for yourself, click here (you've been warned. It ain't pretty).

Sorenstam is doing just fine though. The next day she was skiing.
