Former world number one Sorenstam cuts off finger

There are few golfers on this planet that had a career like Annika Sorenstam. The 42-year-old is third all-time on the LPGA win list with 72, third all-time in Majors (10) and the only player in LPGA history to shoot 59 in a round.

Sorenstam retired from professional golf in 2008 but that doesn't mean she still isn't a big part of the game. She appears frequently on the Golf Channel's "Morning Drive" show and ... alright, I tried. I tried to make this article normal and natural but I just ... I can't.

On Tuesday, Sorenstam tweeted a picture of an accident she had while slicing chicken for a dinner and the results are pretty grotesque.

Before you jump, I warn you, the picture of her finger is not for the queasy. Click at your own risk.

Man that looks bad. Sorenstam followed up her tweet with a message that assured everyone, "no worries healing nicely. Stitches out in a week," but I feel like that deserves to be in the next zombie movie and not on one of the best golfers of this generation.

Slice easier, Annika, for yours and everyone's sake!
