Golf may be a gentlemen's game, but it's not immune to a good old-fashioned Twitter feud. Two British pros had a spat on social media this week, and one account is no longer available. Eddie Pepperell, a 26-year-old who plays on the European tour, failed to qualify for this week's season-ending event in Dubai. It seems he's a little salty about it, and also upset that two of the tour's biggest stars are also skipping it. Here's his tweet, which contains strong language.
Sad news from one of golf's most hallowed courses. Robert "R.J." Harper, who worked at Pebble Beach for 32 years while becoming synonymous with the Pacific Ocean track, died Wednesday of pancreatic cancer. He was 61. Harper began his career at Pebble working as a marshal while earning $5 per hour. He eventually rose to the position executive vice president. Along the way, he earned the nickname "Mr. Pebble Beach" while becoming one of golf's most beloved figures.

This week we're writing short essays about the first course we ever loved. Here's the story of my first golf job at Olde Mill GC in Schoolcraft MI, complete with a murder-mystery and humiliating photo of 18-year-old me. https://t.co/0vCIQ0e8kIhttps://t.co/FCkyIU2mtb
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".
