Allenby: No major injuries after alleged incident


Robert Allenby said in a statement Sunday that he didn’t suffer any major injuries after he was robbed and beaten Friday night in Hawaii and that he hopes to be able to play this week in California.

In a statement released by the PGA Tour, Allenby said:

“I’d like to thank the local authorities, Sony Open and PGA Tour officials and others that have assisted me throughout this unfortunate ordeal. I’d also like to thank the many people that have reached out with their well wishes and support. 

“Medically, I thankfully didn’t suffer anything major beyond some bumps and bruises that will take a bit of time to heal. My plan currently is to fly back to the mainland and at that point, evaluate my ability to play next week at the Humana Challenge. Whatever the outcome regarding my ability to play next week, I anticipate a successful rest of the 2014-15 PGA Tour season. 

“Any updates on the investigation will come from local law enforcement.”

Allenby’s caddie told the Golf Channel that Allenby was robbed, beaten and dumped in a park on Friday night. Police in Honolulu are reportedly investigating the incident as a second-degree robbery.
