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. Nov 12 - 7:54 PM

Robert Allenby secured a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the 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 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 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.
Jun 25 - 9:30 AM

Robert Allenby shot a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Allenby missed only one of 14 fairways and three greens in regulation at Colonial today. He got up and down just once, settling for bogeys on the other two holes, but four birdies secured the red number. The most notable measured 17'3" at the par-3 13th hole and 20'8" at the par-4 sixth. This puts him in terrific position to log his fifth consecutive payday, a streak that he hasn't matched in two years.

Robert Allenby begins his week at the HP Byron Nelson Championship on the best streak of his 2013-14 season.

The Aussie has made three consecutive cuts, and is up to 111th in the FedExCup standings. Two of those three starts, the RBC Heritage and the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, went for top-25 finishes. Allenby has only played twice in this event since 2007, tying for 65th here in 2009 and missing the cut in 2011.
May 13 - 10:22 PM

Robert Allenby grinded out a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage, finishing three strokes back of the clubhouse lead.

The Aussie missed the cut here in his last four trips and he's missed seven of his last nine cuts entering the week. He even opened with a double-bogey 6 at the 10th hole today after finding water off the tee. Yet, Allenby went on to pick off five birdies against a three-putt bogey (at the par-5 second) the rest of the way. Three of his par breakers disappeared from outside 12 feet, the longest measuring 24'4" at No. 17. Even if he parlays this into a top 15, it would be his only such finish in his last 22 PGA TOUR starts.
Apr 17 - 1:46 PM

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.
Feb 25 - 9:35 PM

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.
