In January 2015, Allenby was found severely beaten with bruises all over his face after finishing dinner with friends at a restaurant.  He had claimed to have been kidnapped.  A Hawaii man was later sentenced to five years prison for using Allenby’s credit card and identification.

Allenby opened with 500-1 odds of winning this year’s John Deere Classic.
