Allenby fires caddie mid-round of Canadian Open

allenby-caddieAllenby’s Caddy: “I think he fell over and someone picked up his wallet and had a great time with his credit card.”

The Age’s Megan Levy reports on veteran looper Mick Middlemo’s radio interview where he confessed to telling the story Robert Allenby wanted told, not the one the now-fired caddy believes was the truth back in January.

That’s when his boss said he’d been drugged, kidnapped, beaten and many other things. Now Middlemo, having been fired mid-round, says what he really thinks about this former boss.

Middlemo now says he believes Allenby simply fell over and injured his face after drinking too much wine and tequila and not eating enough food.

“Do I think he got mugged and bashed and absolutely robbed? No I don’t. That’s the story I told because that’s the story he told me to tell because I wasn’t there,” Middlemo told News Corp Australia.

“Do I think he just fell over and cracked his head? Honestly I do … I think he fell over and someone picked up his wallet and had a great time with his credit card.”

As for the firing incident in Canada that allowed Middlemo to free up his thoughts, Al Tays has this from another caddie in the group backing Middlemo’s story. Not that anyone was doubting him at this point in light of his bosses’ street cred.
