When Jordan Spieth drained his bunker shot to win the Travelers Championship on Sunday night, all eyes immediately, and appropriately, turned to the new 10-time PGA Tour winner. Spieth authored an amazing celebration, which is rare in golf. He somehow reacted in the moment and didn’t look like a total square, chucking his club in jubilation and then running out of the bunker for a chest bump with his caddie, Michael Greller.
For golf fans complaining of a somewhat lackluster finish to the U.S. Open last week, the little old Travelers Championship more than made up for it on Sunday night outside Hartford. After sputtering down the back nine and barely hanging on just to get in a playoff, Jordan Spieth went ahead and dunked one from a bunker at the 18th hole, the first in sudden death, to beat Daniel Berger. Spieth was in that same bunker in regulation and burned the edge with a sand shot that led to a par save.
It’s more than just the field that got a boost for 2017 at the Travelers Championship. The purse at TPC River Highlands also got a nice $200,000 boost, bringing the total to $6.8 million this year. That’s right about in the middle for a regular season PGA Tour event — certainly not on the low end. Of course, nothing can match last week’s massive $12 million sum at the U.S. Open, the biggest purse ever.
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".
