Professional volleyball player Morgan Miller, wife of Olympic gold medalist and world champion Bode Miller, suffered a gruesome injury after her husband hit her with 'a line drive to the face'.

The two were enjoying a spot of golf when something went seriously wrong on course. Miller tweeted about the accident and posted the particularly gruesome pic.

"I'm not feeling so hot. Line drive to the face today with a golf ball from my darling husband. I still love", Miller said.


Miller later tweeted sunglasses company Kaenon thanking them for saving her eye.

"A huge thank you @Kaenon By absorbing a 160mph line drive I only got 50+ stitches instead of losing my eye #lucky".


Morgan Miller is also a part-time model (see below) so this injury might have cost the Miller family more than just a trip to the hospital and a pair of sunnies.
