Billy Payne will now “fade into the background” at Augusta National Golf Club. His words, not ours. Payne is retiring as chairman at the age of 69 and has served in that role since 2006. The Atlanta native was asked at the 2016 Masters what he would do if he were to vacate his position at golf’s most famous club.
Only the Trump Organisation could open a new golf course in such fashion. Bordering on the hilarious at times, this was a press launch like no other. King Robert the Bruce made his grand entrance in front of invited guests and media by slowly walking from beneath the back of the new eighth green - flanked by his pals dressed in medieval get-up – up to the front, taking centre stage with his sizeable sword. He then stood there, somewhat awkwardly, waiting for something to happen.
It was the tee-time that promised so much but delivered very little. Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth will both look back on the 81st Masters as a chance missed. The young American duo’s scores were, in fact, the highest of all players in the top-25 in the final round and they could do nothing but watch as Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose fought it out between them for the green jacket. A three-over 76 for Fowler, which saw him cover the back nine in 40, left him in a tie for 11th.
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".
