Come Sunday night we will have the next major champion and the line-ups for the Solheim Cup as Kingsbarns makes its bow on the major stage. This is the first time that Kingsbarns has held the Women’s British Open and it looks a wide-open affair. Mark Townsend looks ahead to some of the big storylines going into the biggest week on the UK calendar…The last time the Women’s British Open visited this part of the world, at St Andrews in 2013, Inbee Park was attempting to win a fourth straight major.
We are seeing a genuine evolution in the role of caddies at the very top of the game. Tom Irwin digs deeper in the Foghorn.,,I think we are about to see a more clinical, more equal – possibly even superior – type of caddie develop. Phil Mickelson and Bones talked of one veto, while Jordan Spieth and Michael Greller speak of two. Exceptions where the caddie can overrule the player. Once or twice, a season. But what if we are about to see the rise of the uber-caddie?
Next month’s PGA Championship is expected to be shown on BBC while no agreement is in place for next year’s Masters, reports Dan Murphy. Just weeks after announcing the launch of their new Sky Sports Golf channel, the satellite broadcaster could be in danger of losing their live coverage of two of the game’s four majors. We already know that they will not be showing next month’s PGA Championship, which is expected to be broadcast instead on BBC, although this is yet to be confirmed.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
