One of Annika Sorenstam's bread-and-butter shots during a brilliant World Golf Hall of Fame career was the cut shot. Be it with driver or 5-iron or wedge, Sorenstam could cut the golf ball and make it fade into her targets as well as anyone, a huge reason she won 72 LPGA tour events including 10 majors.
Unfortunately, she doesn't cut a chicken, as well.
On Tuesday, Sorenstam sent out a photo to her fans on Twitter of the injury she sustained Jan. 3 while cooking dinner for her family and friends in Lake Tahoe. While cutting chicken, her finger got in the way. Her husband, Mike McGee, said in a text to USA TODAY Sports that Sorenstam was rushed to an urgent care center where the wound was closed with five stitches.
Sorenstam went skiing the next day.
Sorenstam sent out the photo with a warning in case some followers would be squeamish. After about two hours of concerned followers asked how she was doing, Sorenstam responded with another tweet:
"Photo of my finger might be disgusting, but no worries healing nicely. Stitches out in a week :)"
