Wow, this is not good. Robert Allenby who has had a solid career as a player on the PGA Tour, was allegedly kidnapped and robbed according to Steve Sands of Golf Channel.
He was with his caddie Mick Middlemo and a friend at a bar in Hawaii when they noticed that Allenby went missing. According to Sands, Middlemo said that Allenby was six miles away from the bar when he was found.
He didn’t have his wallet, cell phone, credit cards or any money. He didn’t even remember where he was and how he got there.
This is the picture Allenby took of his beating and shared on Twitter:
Below is the video report from Steve Sands who broke the story:
Robert Allenby has won four times on the PGA Tour, four times on the European Tour and 13 times on the PGA of Australia.
Let’s hope Robert is OK and we all wish him a speedy recovery both mentally and physically.
