KILLENARD, Ireland -- 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

"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."

Warren teamed with Colin Montgomerie and lost 5-and-3 to Frenchmen Raphael Jacquelin and Gregory Havret.
