Robert Allenby is listed in the published field of next week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Since he withdrew early in the week from the Humana Challenge, the eyewitness accounts of his incident last Friday night in Honolulu have not helped the Aussie's case in the court of public opinion. His statement on Tuesday indicated that only law enforcement would speak about his matter, but all bets are off on what's going to happen now. This includes his entry into the WMPO where the crowd at the par-3 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale would likely be relentless. Jan 23 - 6:29 PM

Robert Allenby has been removed from the published field of this week's Humana Challenge. NOTE: Mark Anderson also withdrew as an alternate.

As time passed after his altercation in Waikiki on Friday night, Allenby was leaning more toward this decision. Not that he's much of a fantasy option most weeks, but if there's any good news about what happened to him, it's that he didn't appear to suffer any injuries that can negatively affect his golf swing in the long-term. He issued the following statement following today's decision: "On the advice of my personal doctor, I have decided to withdraw from this week’s Humana Challenge. This will enable me to ensure I am fully recovered prior to rejoining the PGA TOUR. I anticipate a full recovery and look forward to returning in the near future. Once again, I would like to thank the local authorities in Hawaii as well as the PGA TOUR for their assistance. I am also grateful for all the kind words of support I have received from so many people. Any further updates on the investigation will come from local law enforcement."

While Robert Allenby agreed to interviews on Saturday following his attack in Waikiki the previous night, he released a formal statement to the media today.

In its entirety, it reads: "I'd like to thank the local authorities, Sony Open and PGA TOUR officials and others that have assisted me throughout this unfortunate ordeal. I'd also like to thank the many people that have reached out with their well-wishes and support. Medically, I thankfully didn't suffer anything major beyond some bumps and bruises that will take a bit of time to heal. My plan currently is to fly back to the mainland and at that point, evaluate my ability to play next week at the Humana Challenge. Whatever the outcome regarding my ability to play next week, I anticipate a successful rest of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season. Any updates on the investigation will come from local law enforcement." His missed cut at the Sony Open dropped him to 3-for-6 on the season, but he entered the week ranked 78th in FedExCup points, so he could take some time off and remain inside the top-125 bubble if he so chose.

In an update provided by Ben Everill of the Australian Associated Press, Robert Allenby shared details of his harrowing experience in Hawaii on Friday night.

Allenby was with a buddy at a wine bar in Waikiki. "I was separated from my friend in the bar after we had paid the tab at 10:48 p.m. and he went to the bathroom and next thing you know I'm being dumped in a park miles away," he said. "I only know this part because a homeless woman found me and told me she saw a few guys pull up and throw me out of the car. That is where I got the scrapes above my eye from the sidewalk. ... Then a retired military guy walking past came to my aid. He got me into a taxi and ... I called police from there." PGA TOUR security is contributing in the investigation. "We have some names and numbers and they have some leads to follow up, so I am confident they will get the guys," Allenby added. "With the FBI guys involved, they're the best, the guys on the tour are awesome, and they'll get to the bottom of it. ... I don't care about the money or my cards or anything like that. I am just glad I have survived this one."

As reported by Steven Sands on the Golf Channel live telecast of the Sony Open, Robert Allenby was kidnapped, beaten and robbed late Friday night and early Saturday morning in Hawaii.

According to Sands, Allenby was at a wine bar in Hawaii with his caddie and another friend following his missed cut in the Sony Open. At some point in the night, Allenby was separated from his group and kidnapped by several men. He was beaten and robbed of all of his cash, cell phone and credit cards, and then dumped in a park about six miles from where he was taken. He was found by a retired military man and returned to the Kahala Hotel in the early hours of Saturday morning. We will continue to follow this story and update as more details become available. For the time being, he's scheduled to play next week's Humana Challenge.

Robert Allenby opened his season with a bang before simmering to 74th in the FedExCup standings.

Allenby rattled off a T8 finish at the Frys.com Open to kick off the new season. The Aussie went on to finish outside the top 40 in his next four events, but chalked up top 15s in each of three starts in his homeland. He's coming off a season where he was the last man in the FEC Playoffs, the seventh of his career, so gamers should temper their expectations moving forward.

Robert Allenby has revenge on his mind as returns to a familiar venue for this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The Aussie lost in a playoff to John Huh back in 2012 and returned with a T16 last year. His success at the venue propels him into consideration for gamers, and his ranking of 36th in strokes gained: tee-to-green early in the season keeps him up there. His early season form converges with course history to make him a serious threat this week at El Camaleón.

Robert Allenby secured a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Frys.com Open to end the week inside the top 10 at 11-under 277.

The Aussie spread four birdies and two bogeys across Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course. His chip-in birdie from 15'4" on the par-3 second hole as his longest birdie of the day, and easily the highlight. Considering Allenby finished the 2013-14 season ranked 125th in the FedExCup standings, he's well on his way towards a bounce-back 2014-15 campaign.

Robert Allenby spun a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Frys.com Open to set the new bar in the clubhouse at 9-under 207.

The Aussie erased an early bogey with an eagle from 5'4"on the par-5 fifth and never looked back. Three of his five birdies fell from between nine and 16 feet, which is a bit unusual for Allenby. Typically the putter holds him back. He landed 45 of his first 54 GIR, which was good for tops in the tournament at the time of his posting. In addition to gaining over seven strokes for the week tee-to-green at the time of his posting, he's also on the plus side of the strokes gained-putting stat. He'll have a chance at his first top-10 finish since a T10 at the 2013 FedEx St. Jude Classic in Sunday's final round.

Robert Allenby gathers his tees ahead of the Frys.com Open at Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course.

The Aussie is 1-for-3 at this event, so the new venue can't hurt. Allenby had a slight bounce-back season after a disappointing 2013 campaign. Even still, his 12-for-29 record from last year could also be considered disappointing and isn't scaring anyone. Gamers playing in deeper formats can invest in Allenby, but shouldn't expect any miracles.

Robert Allenby was the last man in the field this week and will give it a go in his 11th appearance at The Barclays.

Allenby has missed his last two cuts, but was able to hang onto the 125th spot in the FedExCup standings. His track record at The Barclays is solid, with a 7-for-10 record that includes three top 15s. The Aussie has yielded two finishes inside the top 50 each of the prior two Barclays held at Ridgewood Country Club, as well. With no finishes inside the top 15 all season, though, it would be wise for gamers to avoid. Exceptions may include salary-cap formats.

Robert Allenby carded a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

At 122nd in the FedExCup standings, the Aussie needs to fare well to play again next week. So far, so good, despite four misses from inside six feet today, two of which leading to both of his bogeys. Elsewhere, however, he buried six birdies, including rolls of 18'7" and 10 feet at Nos. 6 and 8, respectively. He also converted a par attempt from 12'11" at the par-3 third.

Robert Allenby enjoyed a 4-under-par 34-32=66 for his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open.

The Aussie's ball-striking ability was on display at Royal Montreal today. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to five birdies, all from seven feet and in. His only bogey came in the form of a three-putt from 54'8" at the par-4 11th hole, his second of the round. Allenby signed his card sitting just one strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Robert Allenby is 123rd in the FedExCup standings entering this week's RBC Canadian Open.

He is clearly in the danger zone, as the top 125 qualify for the FEC Playoffs and secure full status on the 2013-14 PGA TOUR. He ranked 103rd coming out of Colonial, but missing five of his last six cuts has cost him dearly. Should he earn a few more paychecks between now and the end of the Wyndham Championship, he will likely be fine.

Robert Allenby readies for his eighth appearance at this week's Quicken Loans National.

Allenby owns three Quicken Loans National finishes of 6th place or better, but none of those have come since the U.S. Open renovations were made to the course. Since those changes were made in 2011, he's missed both cuts. The Aussie had a five week stretch this season when his form was sizzling, but has cooled off since with three consecutive missed cuts.
