There have been conflicting reports about the details surrounding Robert Allenby's alleged kidnapping and robbery this past weekend in Honolulu.

Charade Keane, a homeless woman who found a bloodied Allenby, told an Australian TV station he was only one block from the wine bar where Allenby and two friends had dinner Friday night, not six miles as Allenby has said.

Golf Channel insider Tim Rosaforte reported on Monday's "Golf Central" that Allenby texted him, “I’m guessing she’s getting paid” in response to her claims. Allenby later texted Rosaforte, "It’s such a shame that people are focusing on whether the story is true. I say you only have to look at me to see the truth.”

Allenby said he only remembers getting thrown out of a car and then he was attacked by homeless people until Keane and another man helped get him into a taxi back to his hotel.

The Associated Press reported Monday night Keane told the Honolulu Star-Advertiser she knew the two homeless men who were confronting Allenby.

''They started arguing when I got there, and I realized this wasn't well,'' she told the Star-Advertiser. ''I needed to get him out of here.''

It's also unlikely Allenby will be teeing it up this week at the Humana Challenge. Allenby told Rosaforte, "Not feeling great. Can’t open my eye. Haven’t been able to sleep. Thinking about going to the hospital.”
