Colin Montgomerie on Wednesday issued a warning that Rory McIlroy had to get off to a fast, sub-par start in his first six holes of the tournament if he hoped to avoid his third straight worldwide missed cut and the fourth in his last five starts. The 28-year-old Ulsterman may not have received the memo, as he scuffled to a 5-over score on his first six holes at the Open Championship before settling in to finish the day at 1-over 71.
Jordan Spieth put a target on his back as the guy to beat at Royal Birkdale after his bogey-free, opening-round 5-under 65 got him to the top of the 2017 British Open leaderboard. Spieth, with two PGA Tour wins this year, was not flawless in tough conditions in the morning, but the world No. 3 was able to mitigate his few miscues with scrambling saves and a hot putter.
Jason Day’s choice of leggings during Thursday’s crisp opener of the British Open offered yet another example of the double standard facing women in sports. Players sported all manner of cold-weather clothing (how ‘bout that Under Armour armless sweater, Jordan Spieth!). But Day’s trousers captured the attention of Golf Channel commentators Nick Faldo and Steve Sands.
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".
