A Hawaii man has been sentenced to five years in prison for using golf star Robert Allenby's credit cards after the Australian player said he was robbed and beaten.

Owen Harbison was arrested in February on identity theft and other charges. He pleaded guilty in June to using Allenby's credit cards and ID to make purchases, including gift cards, jewellery and clothing.

Allenby recounted a bizarre saga earlier this year of having no memory of what happened for two and a half hours after he left a Honolulu restaurant in January.

He had missed the cut at the Sony Open and went to dinner and said he later woke up in a park with a bloodied face.

It is still unclear what happened.
