HONOLULU, Hawaii (Doug Ferguson/AP) — His left eye bruised and swollen shut, Australian golfer Robert Allenby is still shaking over a beating and robbery that left him unable to remember anything except being dumped in a gutter near a park of homeless people.

“You think ... that happens in the movie, not real life,” Allenby told The Associated Press by phone. “I’m just happy to be alive.”

Allenby posted a photo to his private Facebook account showing a bloodied scrape on his forehead and the bridge of his nose. He said that came from being tossed from the trunk of a car. He said the bruise on his left eye must have come from being beaten in the car.
