Jamie Donaldson injures himself with chainsaw, and it’s gross

Jamie Donaldson was a winner in December when he took the Asian Tour's Thailand Golf Championship. He was a loser over the weekend when he injured himself using a chainsaw.

Donaldson, who clinched the winning point for Europe at the 2014 Ryder Cup, tweeted Monday that he won't be in this week's Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship because he injured his left pinky finger, requiring stitches.

Thankfully, Donaldson's injury doesn't appear to be as serious as injuries Greg Norman suffered in a similar chainsaw accident in September 2014. Norman nearly lost his left hand and was doubtful if he'd ever be able to play golf again. The Welshman, however, expects to return to the European Tour in early February for the Omega Dubai Desert Classic.

Now we know pro golfers shouldn't do two things off the course: ski or use a chainsaw. We'll add to the list as injuries mount.
