MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA (AP) - Robert Allenby has become only the second captain’s pick in the nine-tournament history of the Presidents Cup to fail to pick up a point.
Allenby, selected by captain Greg Norman along with fellow Australian Aaron Baddeley, lost 7 and 5 on Sunday to David Toms in singles to leave Allenby winless in all four of his International matches at Royal Melbourne.
American John Huston, one of Jack Nicklaus’ captain’s picks in 1998, also at Royal Melbourne, is the only other player in the same category not to pick up a point. That was the year of the International team’s only victory in the Presidents Cup.
Allenby lost 4 and 3 on Thursday with Retief Goosen in foursomes, 4 and 3 in fourballs with Y.E. Yang on Friday, and 3 and 2 with Geoff Ogilvy in foursomes on Saturday morning.
