PGA Tour caddie disappointed to see Robert Allenby ‘up to his old tricks’

This is not how you make friends

Arizona Republic-USA TODAY Sports-USA TODAY Sports

A caddie who witnessed the argument between Robert Allenby and his caddie Mick Middlemo during the Canadian Open is not a fan of the way the Australian treated his bagman. He also kind of thinks Allenby is a liar.

Simon Clarke, who has known Allenby for two decades, had the following to say:

"I wouldn't be talking about it if he (Allenby) didn't tell the media afterwards a whole lot of porky pies,"

"I've known Rob for a long time and I've known Mick for a long time. It's disappointing that at age 42, or however old he (Allenby) is, he's still treating people that way and how many good caddies he's gone through.

"It's sad that he speaks to the guys this way and doesn't wait until after the round. It's disappointing that he's up to his old tricks."

Hmmm, he couldn't POSSIBLY be meaning this now, could he?

Allenby did not respond to an email requesting comment.
