Australia's former world No 1 posted a photo to Instagram of himself lying in a hospital bed with his left arm heavily bandaged.
Lesson learnt Norman, 59, issued a warning alongside the photo and suggested he had come close to severing one of his hands.
"Working with a chainsaw ALWAYS be respectful of the unexpected. I was one lucky man today. Damaged, but not down & out. Still have left hand," Norman tweeted.
Norman last week posted a photo of himself working with a chainsaw to cut back a small tree at what appears to be one of his seaside properties.
Norman had one of the most high-profile careers in golf,winning two British Opens and reigning as world No.1 for 331 weeks in the 1980s and 1990s.
