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. Aug 19 - 9:22 AM

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.
May 22 - 2:29 PM

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.
Jan 11 - 6:01 PM

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.
