Our story begins innocently enough, with this jocular tweet by Bode:
But soon, Bode's golfing "exploits" with his lovely missus took a dark turn:

Yikes! "Worst feeling ever." Yeah, well, imagine how your wife feels!
Hit wife w golfball. #worstfeelingever— Bode Miller (@MillerBode) December 12, 2012
Double yikes! Triple yikes, if you click on that Instagram link in Morgan's tweet and view the damage to her eye. We do not recommend you do that, because it is truly disgusting.
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/— Morgan Miller (@MorganEBeck) December 13, 2012
Bode added a thank you to the hospital:
Along with a thank you to the makers of the sunglasses that Morgan was wearing, which Bode credits with saving his wife's eye:
She's a trooper,the docs did a great job,thanks @ucsdhealth— Bode Miller (@MillerBode) December 13, 2012
And added her own thank you to the glasses maker:
Feeling better today. Still can't see out off left eye but I am getting some feeling back in my face— Morgan Miller (@MorganEBeck) December 13, 2012

And now for something compelete different: A shot of Morgan Miller in better times. Now that she's playing golf (and hopefully this incident doesn't turn her off forever), she's a golf hottie:
