    [​IMG] Golf Channel A picture of Robert Allenby's bruised and bloodied face appears on the Golf Channel.
    Four-time PGA Tour winner Robert Allenby said he was kidnapped, beaten and robbed shortly after missing the cut at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

    Allenby, 43, said he spent Friday evening at a Honolulu wine bar near Waikiki when he was abducted. The kidnapper beat the Australian golfer and robbed him of his cash, credit cards and cellphone before dumping him about six miles away.

    “I didn’t think I was going to survive this one,” Allenby told the Australian Associated Press. “I was separated from my friend in the bar after we had paid the tab at 10:48 p.m., and he went to the bathroom and next thing you know I’m being dumped in a park miles away.

    “I only know this part because a homeless woman found me and told me she saw a few guys pull up and throw me out of the car. That is where I got the scrapes above my eye from the sidewalk.”

    Allenby said a retired military man gave him money for a cab to get back to his hotel room near the Waialae Country Club.

    [​IMG] Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images On Friday, Robert Allenby plays his shot from the 17th tee during the second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.
    The Golf Channel first reported the incident and released a photo of the golfer with a large gash above his left eye and scratches on his nose.

    Police are reviewing surveillance video from the bar in search of suspects. Allenby has won more than $27 million on the PGA Tour, although he hasn’t won one since 2001.

    Jimmy Walker one-putted his last 11 holes Saturday on his way to an 8-under 62 and a two-shot lead in the tournament. He was at 16-under 194.

    Hawaii

    guess the race is a little trickier there-the usual suspect is rare on the island

    This is true when i was in Maui they took a dude and pulled his eyes out with a stick. Doesn't get much press because they have a love hate thing with tourism.

    Something doesn't sound right. Why did they kidnap him? They could have just robbed him in the bar parking lot. Sounds like hi jinks were involved.

    I have a feeling that an attempt at some sort of sexual activity was being negotiated and he was on the wrong side of the deal.

    I agree, his story doesn't pass the smell test. Unless the news story is purposely leaving holes.

    I think there's a purple dildo somehow suspiciously missing from the story. Besides, dudes got one of those faces that begs to be punched

    I'm sure Magnum, Rick and T.C. will get to the bottom of these shenanigans.

    He said some shit on Twitter about another Aussie golfer named Ogilvie and they yelled at each other and called each other names. That was pretty badass in the golf world. A 'guys in funny pants' version of Biggie vs. Tupac.

    I also didn't see any mention in the story on whether he was wearing a tiki idol that could have had something to do with his unfortunate luck.
