Playing with his fellow paceman Stuart Broad at the 27-hole Stoke Park golf course in Buckinghamshire, Anderson's miscued shot in the rough rebounded off tree roots and caught him straight in the face.
While his exploits in the Edgbaston Test match against India won him applause from all quarters, James Anderson had no such luck in the game of golf on Sunday.
With Broad filming from behind, Anderson swung hard in an attempt to get his ball back on the pristine fairway, but the ball veered directly up into his face.
Anderson, who plays golf right-handed despite batting left-handed, admitted he'd had to check he wouldn't need to check in with a dentist.

Angelina Jolie Pitt wants divorce finalised by year's end
In the filing, Jolie's lawyers requested to appear before a judge to schedule a status conference to address the financial issue. The documents acknowledge that the duo had an "informal arrangement", but that Pitt has not lived up to that agreement.
The duo recently featured in England's 31-run win over India in the first of the five-match Test series.
Anderson and Broad are expected to be rested for some of the Test series against India this summer but they have been named in the England squad for the second match at Lord's, which gets underway on Thursday. But looks like this turned out to be an unpleasant outing for England pacer James Anderson who injured himself while trying his hand on a different sport.
England have made two changes going into next week's Test in London, with Ollie Pope replacing Dawid Malan and Chris Woakes taking the place of Ben Stokes.
Broad, himself, initially concerned for his bowling partner, could not control his laughter at Anderson's misfortune.
