- Jamie Donaldson’s accident will put him out until the Dubai Desert Classic.
- The Welshman will miss the ‘Gulf swing’ because of the injury.
Do British golfers want to stop getting injured in bizarre circumstances!? Jamie Donaldson, Europe’s 2014 Ryder Cup hero, was doing some home improvements when he got the quadruple bogey of golf injuries.

I got a headache trying to figure out which hand it was but it’s quite clear the injury won’t affect his game too much if it’s the left. At least he had a bunch of fans to make him feel better…
@DonaldsonJamie Just going to put a bet on you for Dubai but I’m worried that’s bound to affect your swing,tell me its fine please

This isn’t the first time a golfer has got into a tangle with a chainsaw. Greg Norman almost lost his left hand when he was out in the garden. “Thank God the blade wasn’t running full speed or it would have taken my hand off,” Norman told Golf.com. “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.”
We wish the world number 50 a speedy recovery. The player became a Ryder Cup legend in 2014 and could be an important player for Europe in October.
