Scotsman hurt after 5-iron meets chandelier

KILLENARD, Ireland (AP) — Marc Warren was back playing in the Seve Trophy tournament on Friday, the morning after he injured himself by accidentally smashing a chandelier with a golf club in his hotel room.

The Scotsman said he tried a practice swing with a 5-iron in his room Thursday night and hit a glass chandelier which smashed into pieces over him.

Warren was taken to a hospital where he received stitches for a deep cut in his abdomen. He also had minor cuts on his arms and head.

``There was plenty of blood and a towel I held to my stomach was covered when I arrived at the hospital,'' Warren said. ``But the only thing that hurt was the scratch on my head. I feel fine about playing today.''
