Year one of NBC's coverage of The Open yielded the perfect combination of weather, venue and story lines, with the 2016 championship at Royal Troon capped by an epic final-round duel between Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson. So what's in store for NBC Sports Group in the second year of its 13-year partnership with the R&A? "It was like the perfect storm that we could ever possibly ask for to get off to a great start," says Tommy Roy, the lead producer for NBC Sports and Golf Channel.
Apollo Global Management acquired country club operator ClubCorp for $1.1 billion in an all-cash deal that seems to be a significant vote of confidence for the golf industry. By snatching up the largest U.S. operator of golf courses, private equity giant Apollo will immediately add a large membership base -- over 430,000 relatively affluent customers spread across more than 200 clubs -- and a stable stream of revenue from monthly dues.
The Hardy family has poured $250 million into the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort over the past three years, determined to make the luxury property in the Laurel Highlands of southwestern Pennsylvania one of the world’s top getaways.

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".
