Donaldson reveals gruesome chainsaw injury


Jamie Donaldson is set to spend some time on the sidelines after the Ryder Cup winner suffered a gruesome finger injury in a chainsaw accident.

The Welshman, who hit the winning shot in Europe's victory over the United States at Gleneagles in September 2014, used Twitter to post an image of the nasty injury to his left hand.

The 40-year-old required stitches after slicing the bottom of his little finger.

Below the picture, Donaldson added the caption: "So folks in my time off decided to have a fight with a chainsaw and lost! Oops! C u in Dubai."

Donaldson's post suggests he will be out of action until the Dubai Desert Classic, which starts on February 4.

He is a three-time winner on the European Tour, with his last victory coming at the Czech Masters in August 2014.
