Reflecting on the week at Erin Hills, which saw Brooks Koepka become the seventh successive first-time major winner while Rickie Fowler and Hideki Matsuyama's wait goes on... If these two, or indeed the golfing world in general, had known two years ago that the next seven majors would be claimed by first-timers then Messrs Fowler and Matsuyama could have been forgiven for liking their chances. Yet here we are halfway through the 2017 major season and they remain incomplete.
It was a day of record-breaking low scoring at Erin Hills – but the game's leading quartet are all struggling just to make the cut...What, then, of the Big Four? Rory McIlroy snap-hooked his way to a six-over-par 78. Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth could only muster a solitary birdie apiece. Jason Day was, by his own world-class standards, horrific. He made two triple bogeys – the first time he’s ever done this in a single round – and only broke 80 thanks to a birdie at the par-5 18th.
Just about everyone has had their say on the length of the Erin Hills rough. But, writes Dan Murphy, we're set for a US Open to remember for the right reasons. The height and ferocity – or otherwise – of the rough is the least of the USGA’s worries at Erin Hills.
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".
