Allenby, 43, has said that he went out for drinks after failing to qualify for the Sony Open in Honolulu last month. He told Reuters then that the next thing he recalled was waking up groggy in a park miles away from the bar to find he had been beaten and robbed of his wallet, cell phone, cash and credit cards.
