Australian golfing legend Greg Norman nearly lost his left hand in an accident while using a chainsaw on Saturday.

He posted the above photo of himself in a hospital bed on his Instagram account with the caption, “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.”

Woot, woot!

Woot, woot!

The Shark calls out golf and drugs

The Shark wants stricter drug testing standards in golf

Greg Norman called out golf’s anti-doping procedure and implied the problem in the game goes beyond, say, Vijay Singh using deer-antler spray.

“You only have to look at what happened to Vijay Singh just recently to know the drugs issue is there,” Norman told The Australian on Monday.

As you know, Adam Scott won his first major and became the first Australian to win The Masters, which is beyond ginormous for the country.

Lucky for you — as the regular viewers of our show know — Luke Elvy, is an Australian golf commentator, who knows Scotty as well if not better than anyone in the media. He provides fantastic analysis and knowledgeable insight into Scott’s victory that you won’t get anywhere else.

Sweet, sweet
redemption.

There’s that moment on Masters Sunday when no matter how badly you have to go to the bathroom or grab another beer, you’re glued to your seat and fixated on watching the 18th hole at Augusta National Golf Club. And then, out of nowhere, Adam Scott drills a 30-footer for birdie on the 72nd hole to fire a three-under 69 and move to nine-under.

Bradley, the first player to win a major with a belly putter, eyes the imminent anchoring ban...with respectful distaste

The anchoring ban controversy elicits strong reactions. It pits a group of people who favor one school of thought against another faction who are set in their view on the issue. (Of course there are some who are indifferent because they say it doesn’t effect them one way or the other but that’s kind of missing the point.)

Now I’m sure you haven’t heard or watched or talked about this imminent new rule that will prohibit the anchoring of a club to the body. Trust me, I am dreading 3-4 more years of this, and more importantly, it’s taken away attention away from the multitude of interesting storylines at Q-school (that I have saved yet not enough hours in the day to write and post). That said, after this, I’m putting a hold on all things anchoring — with exceptions, like if it involves opinions of players at Q-school or if Webb Simpson and Keegan Bradley picket outside Sherwood Country Club.

Barkley wants Tiger to go ballistic on Greg Norman

Oh, Chuck… his candor is ever endearing, but he’s really the only person who can get away with such antics, like throwing a fan through the window, among his other various indiscretions.

Earlier this week an attention-seeking, delusional Greg Norman said that Tiger Woods was intimidated by Rory McIlroy. Norman also threw in that Tiger was passing on the torch to Rory, just like Jack Nicklaus did to Norman. Ummm….errr…ever heard of Nick Faldo? But I digress.

The bromance continues

Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods are paired in the first round of the Tour Championship, the fourth and final event in the quest for the $10 million jackpot. The new BFFs will teeing off shortly — and I’ll be walking with the circus, so follow my tweets for inside the ropes updates if you’d like — but I wanted to catch up on the news I’ve missed in the past few days due to travel delays and a killer migraine.
