Ouch. That’s going to leave a bruise... and possibly a divot.

Jasper Parnevik won’t be strolling up and down the fairways anytime soon, as the 49-year-old from Sweden recently broke his rib after falling on top of Segway handlebars.

Now, we don’t know about you, but if we injured ourselves while riding a Segway we wouldn’t be telling everyone about it. However, Jasper was quick to post his Segway FAIL to Instagram with the caption: "Haha, of all injuries I'v had, this is the most ridiculous!! Broke a rib and had to withdraw from all events this month.”

The Swede has suffered some fairly big injuries in the past and previously underwent hip surgery in 2000 and again in 2009. In 2010 he discovered he had a broken lumbar vertebrae thanks to his years of golfing.

Parnevik is also known for being a tad eccentric when it comes to health kicks and he has admitted to eating volcanic sand as he says it helps to clean his system.

Speaking about eating volcanic sand, Parnevik once said: "It's really expensive. I don't know why. It tastes just like regular dirt."
