Bode Miller had “just another one of those days” on the golf course.
No, he didn’t miss a handful of birdie putts or lose a few balls in the woods — he crushed a ball at his wife’s face in what he is calling his “first major golf catastrophe.”
His wife, professional volleyball player Morgan Miller, tweeted on Wednesday night that the former skiing champ hit her above the eye with a “160 mph line drive.” Luckily, she was wearing sunglasses and only needed 50-plus stitches instead of a glass eye.
I’m not feeling so hot. Line drive to the face today with a golf ball from my darling husband.I still love instagr.am/p/TKWS0bJFhX/

As Bode explains it, he was trying not to hit a tree that she was hiding behind, and wouldn’t you know it, that’s exactly what happened. Check out the gruesome photos below.
