Truth & Rumors: Annika Sorenstam cuts off tip of left index finger
According to usatoday.com, Sorenstam was cooking dinner for friends in Lake Tahoe on Jan. 3 when she injured herself while cutting chicken. Her husband told the paper that the wound was closed with five stitches.
Before linking to the photo of her finger, we'll offer the same caution that Sorenstam sent to her followers today: "Warning, don't look if you can't handle it." The image is here.
As bad as the finger looks, Sorenstam reassured her Twitter followers after sending the image: "Photo of my finger might be disgusting, but no worries healing nicely. Stitches out in a week :)"
