“Working with a chainsaw ALWAYS be respectful of the unexpected,” is a pretty ominous caption for a photo.

But don’t worry, golf fans: Greg Norman is okay.

The 59-year-old Australian and former pro golfer was rushed to the hospital Saturday after an accident with the power tool, which nearly cost him his left hand. But, as of Sunday, he was back on his feet and in good spirits.

“All well the morning after at the scene of the crime,” he wrote in an Instagram post.

After the incident, Norman posted a picture of himself lying in a hospital bed with his left arm bandaged.

“I was one lucky man today,” he captioned the photo. “Damaged, but not down and out. Still have left hand.”

Norman, whose nickname is “The Shark,” won 91 professional world events during his career. He now lives in Florida.
