It was a relatively mild winter and many golfers already have had the ball in the air over the past few weeks. Doesn’t matter.Until the USGA proposes changes to the Post-Dispatch Golf Guide, a new season in St. Louis does not officially start until the Bogeyman clears the tee boxes with an appropriate story.This one takes place in the hereafter, where longtime St. Louis amateur standout Craig Hardcastle arrives to meet his maker.
Twenty five years have passed since 440 acres of scenic farmland near Augusta, Mo. were converted into Boone Valley Golf Club. In that time, the enchanting club has earned a distinguished reputation for championship golf.From 1996 to 2000, Boone Valley played host to the Boone Valley Classic, a Senior PGA Tour event that produced champions like Hale Irwin and Larry Nelson.
Last year was a rough one for the rules of golf. First, a highly visible incident took place on Sunday at the U.S. Open. Dustin Johnson was informed on the 12th hole that he might be penalized for his ball moving on the fifth green. Johnson ultimately was assessed a one-stroke penalty, which was irrelevant to his three-stroke win.Three weeks later, a ruling took center stage at the U.S. Women’s Open.
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".
