Olympic ace Miller tees off... and puts his wife in hospital

Olympic gold medallist Bode Miller might be talented when it comes to using sticks on a ski circuit but less so when using them on a golf course.

Miller, considered the most successful male American alpine ski racer of all time, decided to take his wife, professional volleyball player Morgan, out on the links for a few holes on Wednesday.

Only things didn’t go too well when her husband smacked a golf ball in her face.

“I’m not feeling so hot,” wrote Morgan on Twitter. “Line drive to the face today with a golf ball from my darling husband. I still love.”
