Robert Allenby

Allenby's father was a club professional in Leeds, England before emigrating to Australia. Was a superb amateur in Australia, winning the 1990 and 1991 Riversdale International Cup, 1990 Victoria Amateur Championship, 1990 Malaysian Amateur Championship and 1991 Victoria Open. Still as an amateur in 1991, almost won the Australian Open, only to have Wayne Riley make closing birdies at the last two holes from 30 and 40 feet to nip Allenby by one. Played 1996 season on European Tour and he finished third on Order of Merit, despite a premature finish to his season in October when he suffered a broken sternum and facial injuries in a traffic accident in Spain. Was presented the 2001 Ben Hogan Award by the Golf Writers' Association of America for recovering from that accident. Patron and spokesperson for Challenge Cancer Support Network, with the Robert Allenby Golf Day having raised more than $9 million since 1992 for children with cancer and blood disorders. Allenby has given more than $500,000 to the cause.
Allenby turned professional in 1992 and was successful almost immediately, topping the PGA Tour of Australasia Order of Merit in his first season and again in 1994. He continues to play some events on his home tour and has won 13 events on it, including one as an amateur. He also began to play on the European Tour and it was his principal tour until 1998. He won four tournaments on it, including three in 1996, when he finished third on the Order of Merit.
Allenby moved over to play full time on the PGA Tour in 1999 and now plays primarily in the U.S. He earned exempt status for 1999 by finishing 17th at the 1998 Qualifying School. He had a disappointing first season in America, coming 126th on the money list, but was successful in 2000 when he won the Shell Houston Open and the Advil Western Open. He claimed another pair of wins the following season. In both of those years he came away 16th on the money list. He has not won since but finished in the top 125 each year from 2000?2012. Since his last victory at the Marconi Pennsylvania Classic, he has earned more money in the last 13 years than anyone else without a victory.
In 2005 he became the first golfer to win the "triple crown" of the Australian Masters, Australian PGA and Australian Open in the same year.
For years had problems with his wrist, which seemed better during the 2010 season. In August of 2010, Allenby tore ligaments in his right knee when he slipped on the deck of his boat while on a fishing trip. That, and a previous ankle injury that bothered him most of the year, was repaired through arthroscopic surgery.
Competed in six Presidents Cups (1994, 1996, 2000, 2003, 2009, 2011), three World Cups (1993, 1995, 2009) and the 1993 Dunhill Cup. Has a perfect record (7-0) in playoffs, including 3-0 record in PGA Tour playoffs and 10-1 worldwide.
In 2011 struggled to a 0-4-0 record for the International team. A week later, he found himself in a playoff at the Australian PGA Championship with Marcus Fraser and Greg Chalmers. Along with Fraser, he made a bogey on the first playoff hole to Chalmers' par, giving Chalmers the victory.
In 2012, entered the FedExCup Playoffs ranked 112nd in the standings but missed the cut at The Barclays to fail to advance to the Deutsche Bank Championship. It marked the first year in the six-year history of the Playoffs that he didn't advance to at least the BMW Championship (the third of four events). The year will also be remembered as the last time he came close to winning. At the Mayakoba Classic made double bogey on the 72nd hole to drop into a tie with John Huh. They played the second longest playoff in PGA Tour history, going 8 holes before John Huh won.
During the 2013 season, Allenby missed the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time since the Playoffs began in 2007. Ended a streak of 13 seasons inside the top 125 on the money list. Finished T10th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic, his first PGA Tour top-10 since a T-7th at the same event in 2012. For the year, was 185th in the FedExCup race and 182nd in the money race.
Has played in 64 majors before the U.S. Open, in those 64 only has four top-tens and his best finish is T7th at the 2004 U.S. Open and 2008 Open Championship.
