It’s one of the game’s unique and abiding traits: For any given round, golfers of all skills can compete against one another by virtue of having a Handicap Index that measures their ability. So what if you can’t break 90! You could be teeing it up against Jordan Spieth or Lexi Thompson and, based on your score, quantifiably say you played better than a major champion. There is, however, a flaw in the system. Specifically, there isn’t just one system for calculating handicaps.
USGA/R&A unveil new World Handicap System set to debut in 2020 After years of work, the six current handicap systems are being replace with one worldwide Index that's easy to obtain and will be truly portableIt’s one of the game’s unique and abiding traits: For any given round, golfers of all skills can compete against one another by virtue of having a Handicap Index that measures their ability.

There are moments during a tournament when you know it’s going to be your week. For Bubba Watson, one of those came on Sunday at Riviera Country Club when the two-time winner of the Genesis Open holed out from the bunker on the par-3 14th for a birdie. Coupled with a bogey from playing partner Patrick Cantlay, it pushed Watson to a two-stroke lead, which he hung on to after finishing with a two-under 69 to become a three-time winner of the Genesis 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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
