Can Robert Allenby use this week's World Super 6 Perth at Lake Karrinyup CC in Perth, Australia to end his career slump?
There was once a time when Allenby's name was one of the very first entered on the shortlist when golf went down under. Indeed in 2005 he backed up all that favortism by winning the Aussie Triple Crown (Open, PGA Championship and Masters). But since then? Only the 2009 Australian PGA has come his way. The state of his game is also highlighted by a run of 1-for-10 coming in (with the exception T65 on the Tour), the fact that he hasn't broken 74 in his last five opening laps, and an average of 76.33 in his last three starts. The good news? He was T4 on the course back in 2003 and opened 69-69 here last year. Yet more bad news? A Saturday 73 saw him miss the knockouts on Sunday. Feb 6 - 3:56 AM

Robert Allenby pieced together a 5-under-par 33-33=66 during round one of the Barbasol Championship, staking out an early spot inside the top 10.

Playing on Past Champions and Beyond 150 on the Money List status categories, Allenby is finding just his third start of the season. He looks to be making the most of the rare opportunity, as his opening round featured 16 greens in regulation, setting up nine scoring chances from inside 20 feet. He also added a bonus birdie at the par-3 12th when he drained a 45'9" bomb. Allenby would walk off the course gaining 3.629 strokes putting on the day. The four-time TOUR winner has made the cut in just 11 of his last 50 starts, so today is certainly a nice surprise for any Allenby fans watching him closely.

Arriving fresh off a top 10 on the Tour, Robert Allenby will look to maintain that momentum as he preps for this week's Shell Houston Open.

Allenby came up seven shots shy at last week's Louisiana Open, but still picked up a T5 for his efforts. While it may have come on a lower-tiered tour, it's promising nonetheless for a veteran who hasn't secured a top 40 on the PGA TOUR since the 2015 Open (T8). Cracking the field this week with a sponsor's invite, Allenby is a long shot to contend but there is a bit of light after last week's showing.

Robert Allenby was once a real force down under, but he'll tee it up at the Australian PGA Championship this week at the RACV Royal Pines Resort more in hope than expectation.

If anything sums up the collapse of Robert Allenby's career it is the fact that he tees it up in an event on home soil and the bookies make him 125/1. This is a man who was routinely single figures as, between 1997 and 2009, he made 49 starts in the country, finishing top ten two-thirds of the time and winning on seven occasions, including the Aussie Triple Crown (Open, Masters, PGA Championship) in 2005. That said, he was T10 two weeks ago in the Australian Open and T12 in October's Fiji International, but that latter result broke a catastrophic run of 2-for-25 which stretched back to last October and included this event 12 months ago when he carded 76-79. He was, however, T13 at Royal Pines back in 2014, coincidentally (or not) the last start prior to his disastrous visit to the 2015 Sony Open in Hawaii, between which result and Fiji he didn't record even one top 50 result.

Robert Allenby ended a streak of 15 consecutive missed cuts that dated back to T68 at the OHL Classic in November, 2015.

With rounds of 72-74, the 45-year-old made the cut at the RBC Canadian Open (on the number), and after a third-round 75, begins the final round T74 on 5-over 221. Allenby, playing this season on Past Champion status, has now made two cuts this season in 20 starts.

Robert Allenby arrives in Charlotte, North Carolina, for a meeting with Quail Hollow Club at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Allenby continues his run of poor form, entering the week with a 1-for-15 record on the season. He ranks outside the top 175 in driving distance, driving accuracy, and greens in regulation. The Aussie sports an 8-for-11 track record at Quail Hollow Club, but his form overtakes any previous course history in this case, and gamers can continue to ignore Allenby in all fantasy formats.

Robert Allenby is in the published field at this week's Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

Overall, Allenby is making his 16th appearance at the Honda and has played in every edition since 2003. He enjoyed some serious success in the first three years the tourney moved to PGA National, posting T5-T4-T5 in 2007-09. The 44-year-old is 3-for-6 since with a best of T21 five years ago. He's playing this season on Past Champion status and dating back to last season, he's missed the cut (or WD) in 25 of his last 33 events with nothing better than T41 at the 2014 McGladrey.

Robert Allenby makes his way back to El Camaleón Golf Club for this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The Aussie arrives with course history in his corner. His resume includes a runner-up finish in 2012 and he added another top 20 just two years ago. Unfortunately, form is headed in the opposite direction as he sports an 8-for-28 record since the start of last season. Gamers should force Allenby to regain a hint of form before reinvesting.

Robert Allenby opened the Tour Championship with a 1-under-par 34-35=69.

Whattaya know, he elected not to withdraw early for the third straight week. Obviously, he's feeling better, but a sore back forced him out after 27 holes of the first leg of the Tour Finals. Now facing a play well-or-bust scenario at Dye's Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass, Allenby overcame a pair of double bogey-6s with an eagle-3 and a trio of birdies. Since our last update, Rotoworld learned that the Aussie will burn his second of two career earnings exemptions if he doesn't secure status this week. He turned 44 years of age in July.

Robert Allenby is included in the published field of this week's Tour Championship.

He might as well sign up and see how he feels. Through the first three legs of the Tour Finals, Jhonattan Vegas sits 25th on the money list reserved to determine the recipients of the 25 PGA TOUR cards up for grabs. The Venezuelan has earned $28,871.42. Last year, Eric Axley secured the final berth with $36,311.67. Solo sixth at the Dye Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass this week will pay $36K. Remember that Allenby has gone the entire year without a top 50 anywhere. He hasn't competed since the Hotel Fitness Championship to open the Finals. Alas, he withdrew after 27 holes with a back injury. He then withdrew early from the last two events.

Robert Allenby has elected not to peg it at this week's Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship in Ohio.

That he had committed at all was a mild surprise given his back injury and goal to climb inside the bubble to secure a PGA TOUR card for 2015-16. At this point, if he doesn't commit to next week's Tour Championship, the next bit of next we expect to receive is that he'll either burn or holster the second of two career earnings exemptions for next season.

Robert Allenby is included in the published field of next week's Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship.

The third leg of the Tour Finals will be contested on the Scarlet Course at Ohio State University in Columbus beginning on Sept. 24. The giant question is if the Aussie will be there. He withdrew at the turn of his second round of last week's Hotel Fitness Championship with a back injury, and then then pulled out of this week's stop in North Carolina early in the week for the same reason. He has one career earnings exemption remaining on the PGA TOUR, but he's only 44 years old. Even so, given his terrible form all year, it would require a reversal of form we haven't seen in a long time for him to secure one of the 25 PGA TOUR cards up for grabs in the Finals.

Robert Allenby has been removed from the published field of this week's Small Business Connection Championship.

He called it quits after just 27 holes of last week's Hotel Fitness Championship with a sore back, so this week's decision isn't a surprise. But with only two tournaments remaining in the Tour Finals for him to make a run at regaining fully exempt status on the PGA TOUR, the Aussie is likely headed to using the second of two career earnings exemptions for 2015-16. He's 44 years of age and ranks 31st all-time with almost $27.4 million. This latest setback is just the latest in a year that has also included an attack in Hawaii and a caddie confrontation in Canada. He's cashed four times in 21 combined starts in 2015, none of which as a result of a top 50.

Robert Allenby surprised with a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in today's opening round of the Quicken Loans National.

Allenby withdrew during his last two starts, first with discomfort connected to his sciatic nerve at Greenbrier, and then after an opening 81 in Canada last week during which he and his caddie parted ways. Today in Virginia, the Aussie went 5-for-6 in scrambling with one bogey. He also found five birdies, including a zero-putt five-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 first hole and a conversion from 10'4" at the par-4 13th. This is just his seventh red number to open a tournament in 23 starts this season and it's just his second sub-70 (69, McGladrey). Allenby is four swings off the clubhouse lead at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club.

Robert Allenby is scheduled to compete in next week's Quicken Loans National.

The Aussie withdrew from this week's RBC Canadian Open after opening with an 81 during which he fired his caddie. After hearing Allenby's side of the story, his former looper, Mick Middlemo, shared another side of the story with "[Allenby] called me a ‘fat ****’ a few times," Middlemo said. "It kept bubbling away and I said to him, ‘I dare you to say that again’. We were yelling each other a bit at this stage. There were a few innuendos and he slapped the putter back in my hand harder than he should have. ... (Allenby) said a bit later on, ‘I’m going to get a caddie banned for life from the PGA Tour today’. I said to him, ‘I assume you mean me.’ He said, ‘You’re damn right’ and he called me a ‘fat ****’ again. I put the bag down and said ‘I’m done’. When I walked back to the caddie area, I got a standing ovation." Allenby is 180th in the FedExCup standings.
