Shubhankar Sharma followed in Rory McIlroy’s footsteps to achieve two firsts at Randpark Golf Club in Johannesburg: He won his first European Tour event and earned his debut start in the Open Championship. Sharma became the first player since McIlroy to convert a 20-under-par 54-hole score into victory. McIlroy achieved that feat in the 2015 Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Sharma turned his 20-under score into 23 under by returning a closing 69 to win the $1.2 million Joburg Open.
Shubhankar Sharma will have to wait an extra day to see if he can win the $1.2 million Joburg Open. The 21-year-old Indian holds a four-shot lead with play carried over until Monday. Sharma birded two of his first seven holes to reach 22 under, and was on the eighth green when dangerous weather forced suspension of play. South African Erik van Rooyen birdied four of the first eight holes to reach 18 under and is lying in second place.
Shubhankar Sharma may not go on to win the $1.2 million Joburg Open, but his name will always be linked with Rory McIlroy’s. Sharma is the first player since the four-time major winner to reach 20 under par through 54 holes in a European Tour event. McIlroy recorded the feat during the 2015 Omega Dubai Desert Classic. The Indian has reached that total in Joburg without really breaking sweat.
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".
