Even when viewing fatigue has set in from watching hours and hours of televised golf from a major championship, it still is worthwhile to head over to Golf Channel to hear the analysis of its opinionated and astute duo of Brandel Chamblee and Frank Nobilo. Leading off was Nobilo, regarding the putt Spieth holed for birdie on the 18th hole that expanded his lead over Matt Kuchar to three and to six over Brooks Koepka and Austin Connelly, who are tied for third.
Country music, it has been said, is three chords and the truth, and the truth is that most of us are, well, s****y golfers. Put to music by a country music star and you have the song, S****y Golfer, part of Toby Keith’s new album “The Bus Songs,” that will be available Sept. 8. The idea for the album was explained this way on his website: "Sometimes...his compositions aren't built for massive airplay. They're written too late at night.
When NBC and the Golf Channel had the U.S. Open, it was producer Tommy Roy’s quest to show every player in the field. Now he is attempting to do the same in their first year doing the British Open. He came close in the first round on Thursday, showing 131 of the 156 players, according to a Golf Channel PR Tweet, or 84 percent of the field.
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".
