Report: Allenby beaten, robbed after missing cut in Hawaii

The Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Golf Channel is reporting that Robert Allenby of Australia was robbed, beaten and dumped in a park after missing the cut in the Sony Open.

The network showed a photo Allenby took of his face bloodied and swollen.

A Honolulu police spokesman did not immediately return a call seeking confirmation. A phone call to Allenby went straight to voice mail.

Fellow Australian player Stuart Appleby says he spoke to Allenby in his hotel room Saturday morning and that Allenby was trying to reconstruct what happened.

According to the Golf Channel report, Allenby's caddie said they were in a wine bar Friday night. He says Allenby was beaten, driven some six miles away and dumped in a park. He was found by a retired military man who helped him back to his hotel.
