Sydney: Golf great Greg Norman said he was recovering in a US hospital Sunday after almost cutting off his hand with a chainsaw.

Australia`s former world No.1 posted a photo to Instagram of himself lying in a hospital bed with his left arm heavily bandaged.

Norman, 59, issued a warning alongside the photo and suggested he had come close to severing one of his hands.

"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," Norman tweeted.

Norman last week posted a photo of himself working with a chainsaw to cut back a small tree at what appears to be one of his seaside properties.

Norman had one of the most high-profile careers in golf, winning two British Opens and reigning as world No.1 for 331 weeks in the 1980s and 1990s.
