Robert Allenby won the 2000 Shell Houston Open and has returned to the event for the 10th time.
Unfortunately for the Aussie, his victory came at a previous venue, with the Golf Club of Houston taking over as the host in 2006. He's made three cuts in four attempts at the current home, with a tie for sixth in 2011 the highlight. Australians have won two of the last three PGA TOUR starts, with John Senden winning the Valspar Championship and Steven Bowditch breaking through at the Valero Texas Open last week. Perhaps that bodes well for Allenby. Apr 1 - 9:33 PM

Robert Allenby will tee it up in The Honda Classic this week.

PGA National began hosting this event in 2007 and Allenby quickly adjusted. He finished inside the top five in each of the first three editions, but has missed two cuts and failed to secure a top 20 since. That follows the curve of his career the last few years, so don't expect the same Aussie that notched those top fives several years back.

Robert Allenby caught lightening in a bottle during a third-round 5-under-par 32-33=65 at the Sony Open, joining Jeff Overton in the clubhouse lead at 9-under 201.

The last time the Aussie matched that score on the PGA TOUR came in 2012 at Mayakoba, where he lost on a playoff to John Huh. He spent some time in the real-time lead throughout the afternoon, but after recording six birdies he dropped his lone shot at the par-3 17th after finding a bunker off the tee and failed to birdie the par-5 18th. Playing off a career earnings exemption, tomorrow's final round could be huge in terms of setting the table for the rest of his season.

Robert Allenby returns to Waialae Country Club for the Sony Open.

The Aussie has a mixed record at this week's venue, including a runner-up in 2010 but missed cuts in his last three trips. His game fell of a cliff in 2013, making just five cuts in 24 starts and finishing 185th in the FedExCup standings. The 2013-14 season is already off to a better start, securing paychecks in two of four events including a T16 in his last start in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.
Jan 7 - 9:04 PM

The third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba was suspended by darkness at 5:09 p.m. CT, and play is scheduled to resume at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday morning.

Robert Allenby was in the first game off the first tee in the third round, and the runner-up in the 2012 edition managed to complete 15 holes in 5-under-par. While nobody was able to get 54 holes in the books by nightfall on Saturday, it appears that a Sunday finish will be a reality barring additional weather delays. Thursday and Friday were marred by torrential downpours that routinely suspended action, but Saturday saw clear skies.

Robert Allenby carded a 3-under-par 31-37=68 in his opening round of the Open, good for a share of the very early clubhouse lead.

Wait, what? Allenby went 5-for-24 last season, signed for only seven sub-70s and finished 185th in FedExCup points. After hitting 15 greens in regulation at CordeValle today, he walked off with a strokes gained-putting split north of 3.050. Even a casual golf fan knows that putting is not among his strengths, but perhaps he can gain some confidence after sinking five birdies, four of which disappearing between 11 and 19 feet. The Aussie is burning his career earnings exemption for sitting inside the top 25 all-time. He's currently 23rd.

Robert Allenby has been added to the published field of this week's Reno-Tahoe Open.

The Aussie was a late entry. Since he's well outside the top-125 bubble and not yet exempt for 2013-14, it was unusual that he didn't commit to the RTO in the first place. After a T61 in Canada, he's 180th in FedExCup points on just five paydays in 22 starts this season.

Robert Allenby will make his first stop at The John Deere Classic.

It's hard to believe that a veteran of 423 TOUR events has never made his way to the Quad Cities, but that happens to be the case. For years, he's been a fixture on the global golf scene and this event is normally in the way of his preparation for The Open Championship. With his world ranking all the way down to 429th, Muirfield is the last thing on his mind this week.

Robert Allenby turned in a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the St. Jude Classic to secure his best finish of 2013 at 5-under 275.

It's unknown if it will be good enough for a top 10 just yet, but it will easily surpass his T27 at Quail Hollow. He circled 14 birdies and an eagle this week at TPC Southwind to 11 bogeys. While his key ball-striking stats were poor, perhaps the biggest turnaround was on the greens. He ranked inside the top 20 in strokes gained-putting at the time of his posting.

Robert Allenby has a history of success at TPC Southwind in the FedEx St. Jude Classic, but recent form renders him a question mark.

In 16 starts this year, he's made the cut just three times with a T53 at Memorial last week his second-best finish. Finding a statistical category on the PGA TOUR where the Aussie cracks the top 100 is like looking for a needle in a haystack. It all adds up to a 171st ranking in the all-around category.

Robert Allenby takes on Quail Hollow for the ninth time in this week’s Wells Fargo Championship.

The Aussie has seen the weekend on six of his previous eight occasions, finishing fourth in 2008. His 2013 season continues to be a grind, making just one cut in 13 tries and missing his last four. It’s not a surprise that he’s 155th in strokes gained-putting, but that he has fallen to 173rd in ball-striking is a mild shock. It’s always been his tee-to-green game that’s propped him up.

Robert Allenby has never missed a cut in his eight prior trips to the Shell Houston Open, and needs that kind of success this week.

Allenby was the winner of the 2000 event, but his career is currently mired in a deep slump. He made his only cut out of eight tries at last week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational. That it was a T72 doesn’t exactly qualify him as trending.

Robert Allenby swallowed a 5-over-par 35-41=76 in his opening round of the Northern Trust Open.

Back in action since a hip injury bumped him from the Farmers during his second round, the 2001 NTO champ hit only nine greens today. It led to six bogeys and a double, erasing three birdies on his first nine. He birdied holes 11 and 16 from 11'6" and 16'11", respectively, so his score could have been higher without those mid-range conversions. A year ago this week, he ranked 70th in the world. He entered this week slotted 227th. Over his last 20 starts worldwise, he's cashed only five times and has zero top 25s.

Robert Allenby is scheduled to compete in next week's Northern Trust Open.

The PGA TOUR's media department reported this. The Aussie has been sidelined since an injury to his left hip forced him to withdraw during his second round of the Farmers two weeks ago. He recorded one of his four PGA TOUR victories at Riviera, winning a six-man playoff in 2001. It was the first of seven top 20s at the tournament in his career, the most recent of which a T4 in 2011. Despite his success, he's done very little since to warrant much about which to get excited in fantasy formats.

Robert Allenby withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open during his second round due to an injury to his left hip.

Allenby went out in 2-over-par on Torrey Pines North before calling it a week. He was 6-over through 27 holes. He's 0-for-3 to begin the season.
