The European Tour’s announcement of a shot clock “trial” during next year’s Austrian Open should be cause for celebration. I can’t help feeling it’s just the latest case of Nero fiddling while Rome burns. Each group during next June’s Austrian Open will have a referee. Players will be allocated 40 seconds per shot. Any player who exceeds the 40 seconds will be given a warning. Subsequent breaches will result in one-shot penalties.
A case of deja vu broke out in the final round of the Italian Open. Tyrrell Hatton won for the second week in a row, with fellow Englishman Ross Fisher breathing down his neck for a second straight week. Hatton came home in 30 strokes at Golf Club Milano to beat Fisher and Kiradech Aphibarnrat for his second straight win following last week’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship victory. Hatton beat Fisher by three shots last week. This week he pipped him by one.
Matt Wallace could be about to move into a whole new stratosphere. The Englishman takes the 54-hole lead at the $7 million Italian Open. Another good round and he can reach that elusive next level so many tour pros talk about. A 4-under 67 moved the 27-year-old to 17 under, two shots ahead of home favorite Francesco Molinari and in-form Tyrrell Hatton, winner of last week’s Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St. Andrews.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
