Past Fantasy Outlooks
A couple well-placed finishes put Allenby in the top-125 of the Fed Ex list last season even though he ended up well out of the top-125 on the money list. Allenby caught a huge break in that aspect, but it's doubtful that he'll be able to accomplishment, even with the full card for next season. Allenby is well past his prime and there's no signs of a resurgence any time soon. As such he's not worth much of a look in salary cap leagues and he'll likely go undrafted as well.
Allenby's better days are probably behind him, but it was still a surprise to see him come in with less than $1 million last season. Most concerning was the way he finished last season. In his final 13 PGA TOUR events last year, he missed 10 cuts, finishing no higher than 56th. Allenby should bounce back this season, but to what degree? There seem to be more questions than answers at this point, which makes him a poor choice in salary cap leagues, even at the discounted price. He's still worth a look in draft leagues, though.
Is Allenby on the back-end of his career? He turns 41 this year, and while that's not exactly a death sentence, it is usually around the time that the skills start to erode. Allenby had one of his better seasons just two years ago, but last year was disappointing from beginning to end. Unlike his 2010 season, Allenby struggled to put it all together in any given week as he collected only thee Top-10s last season. That's certainly not what we are accustomed to with Allenby, and it may be signal that he's on the way down. That said, he's not the type who's going to crash and burn.
Allenby's quest for that elusive fifth PGA TOUR victory again fell short in 2010, but that doesn't mean the season was a disappointment. Allenby carded two runner-up finishes with three other top-10s. He also finished in the top 25 in half of his 22 starts last season. Allenby is approaching that magical number of 40, as he'll turn 39 this year, but he doesn't appear to be slowing down. Allenby's stats are solid, but not spectacular. Last year, he ranked no higher than 67th in the core categories, but no lower than 87th. Allenby appears to be primed for another strong season that just might include another trip to the winner's circle.
Though Allenby has not won a PGA Tour event in the last five seasons, he has played well in the last two and ended last season ranked 21st in the world. Allenby is still playing at a high level and is one of the most reliable players on Tour. If he is able to find the winner's circle again in 2010, he would be a great value pick. Allenby moved from 27th to 21st in the final 2009 Official World Golf Rankings.
He failed to win in 2008, however he played consistently well the entire year. he played in 28 events and made 27 cuts, finishing in the top-25 17 times. It seems unlikely that Allenby can keep up this pace through 2009, but he doesn't have to if he can find a way to win this year. Allenby should improve upon his 2008 number, but not enough to make him a must have in 2009.
After a great start to the 2007 season, including five consecutive top-10s, expectations grew for Robert Allenby. It was at that point when his game went south. Not horribly south, but south none the less. Allenby came into the 2007 season with high expectations because he had won a few events overseas during the off-season. He played well out of the gate, but something happened after the first few months, and he never found that form again. Allenby has not been the model of consistency over the last five years, so there is no way to know for certain which way he'll go this year. I have a feeling he drops off a bit this year.
Allenby is a good example of a player that has great stats, but can't seem to get much out of them. His all-round ranking in 2006 was second, but the problem with that number is this: You can play really good all year, but unless you play lights-out during a given week, you aren't going to cash in. Allenby finished with 12 top-25s in 20 events. That's a good number. Allenby was a two-time winner in 2001, but he's failed to win on the PGA Tour since. He has remained consistent since then, though, and this is one case where the all-round ranking is a sign of future success. Look for a big year from Allenby.
Three top-10s and only one top-5 just doesn't seem right for Allenby. Allenby has been a pretty dependable player, until last couple years that is. Allenby earned about $2 million each year from 2000-2003, and $2 million in 2000 is more like $3 million in 2005. Allenby certainly didn't finish strong on the PGA tour in 2005, missing three of his last four cuts. But since then he's won three events on the Australian tour. The Australian tour is not the PGA tour, but a win is a win. Allenby has been in a funk the last couple years, but he's not in the downswing of his career. His recent success might spark him heading into 2006.
He had nine Top Ten finishes in 24 tries, not a bad percentage at all. He took over a month off during the heart of the season last year, and it might have thrown him off a bit. If Allenby plays more this year and gets into a nice rhythm somewhere along the line, he could be a serious factor in a number of tournaments.
