The PGA Tour does not really have an end point on the calendar. It's just always up and running or just days away from re-starting. There is no offseason or sustained break from touring across the country, and often the world during the fall. But there is an official end to a season and that will happen Sunday evening in Atlanta at the TOUR Championship. This is the fourth and final leg of the FedExCup Playoffs and only 30 players remain in the postseason.
Television ratings may be down, and Tiger Woods is not around, but golf, from a money measurement, has never been healthier. It's a money bath every week on the PGA Tour. The purses at the majors keep going up and up every year as those four events continue their never-ending arms race. Even the lowest tier events on the PGA Tour are still paying out at least $1 million to the winner. The cash is flowing on the PGA Tour, and this Sunday is the annual reminder of just how enormous it's all gotten.
The 2016-2017 PGA Tour season has come to an end, and because the golf media loves a nice and tidy narrative, you're going to read and hear plenty about how appropriate the ending was at the TOUR Championship. That's because two more high school class of 2011 stars took the two biggest prizes, capping a year in which 25-and-under players made the most competitive tour in the world their own.
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".
