No mention of what happened to Allenby, nor how Harbison came to possess Allenby's ID and credit cards.

So many of the greatest hits storylines of the year are getting updates today, it seems. I'm half expecting it to all converge at a singularity soon with a story that Robert Allenby woke up from his daze alongside Tiger Woods and Amanda Dufner.

...and that Phil Mickelson was gambling and insider trading with his money!

I just don't understand you guys putting this on something Allenby did with no evidence to support it.  Do you always take take this sort of a tack when someone claims to be the victim of a crime?  Ar

Middlemo now says he believes Allenby simply fell over and injured his face after drinking too much wine and tequila and not eating enough food.

“Do I think he got mugged and bashed and absolutely robbed? No I don’t. That’s the story I told because that’s the story he told me to tell because I wasn’t there,” Middlemo told News Corp Australia.

“Do I think he just fell over and cracked his head? Honestly I do … I think he fell over and someone picked up his wallet and had a great time with his credit card.”

Not a whole lot in writing yet since it's a breaking story, but Golf Channel is reporting that Robert Allenby was kidnapped from a bar, beaten up, and robbed after missing the cut at the Sony Open. He was dropped 6 miles from the bar. Here's a picture Jason Sobel tweeted out: EDIT: Story from Golf Channel: http://www.golfchannel.com/news/golf-central-blog/allenby-kidnapped-bar-and-beaten-robbed/

probaby pissed off a moke in Hawaii....right now I'm not too sympathetic for his experience.

Those marks on his face are far more in line with someone falling vs someone who was beat up.

That's what I concluded, too. People who get beat up generally have multiple injuries. Allenby looks like he got smacked my something that hit his nose and forehead while simultaneously getting scratched by it. Puffy/black eyes can be explained by the nose injury, but that scratch looks more like a concrete scrape than some kind of facial laceration from being punched.

    • Lesson 4/15: Discussed my sudden (or likely not so sudden) regression in ball striking over the last 11 holes. Teacher observed about three swings and identified an issue. Takeaway had drifted inside, and was very much a hands move without enough shoulder pitch or turn. Worked on feeling my lead shoulder pitch down and around, and the feeling is that my shoulders/torso are moving the club back and not the hands. Getting this sorted out is priority piece for the next month. After about 10 balls at slow speed, contact was back to center, with misses toward the toe side, instead of heel. AoA was 5-6 degrees down with 7-iron, path 2-3 degrees I > O, but still need to work on clubface control; some straight balls, some over draws, and some push fades - clubface control is a co-priority piece. Recentering/flow is good with irons, but as I transition into longer clubs like hybrid/3W, I hang back for some reason. Really need to feel a "fall" toward the ball with hybrid/3W, and less push off the trail leg, and more thought on rotation to arrest the fall. Worked on the priority piece with hybrid on the launch monitor after lesson, and the backswing priority piece was working well, and toward the end I had made some progress figuring out clubface control. From 230 yards out on the GC4 range, the bad L/R misses were still mostly within nGIR proximity, so if this is as bad as it gets as I fine tune this, I'm happy. Spend the last 15 minutes on the launch monitor hitting driver. I was pretty tired at this point, but swing speed was good, typical range around 110-112mph, with a max of 115mph.
    • For dispersion control, consider a shaft length between 44” and 45”.
    • Day 485: Lesson and an hour on the GC4 launch monitor afterwards. New priority piece to work on.
    • I get your point. I just think it is tad bit similar to broomsticks that have contact to the body (forearms in this case) in addition to palms. A tiny skill cheat IMO.  From what I understand weight has an individual sweet spot. Any heavier and distance consistency  suffers.  Of course this all is based on a sample size of one - me vs. a few thousand of yours. So yeah.. don't think I will be exactly picketing for a ban or anything, just a little light Thursday afternoon musing..😊.
