University of North Carolina men's basketball coach Roy Williams is clearly among the golf fans glued to their screens this week as Tiger Woods takes on the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He opened a press conference on Thursday by reading aloud from an update of Tiger Woods's current score at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. "Opening statement would be…" he began. "I see that Tiger Woods just birdied a hole, so he’s the sole leader now at four under par through 16 holes.
Francesco Molinari vented his frustrations about a slow play warning on Twitter, saying that it was "incredible" that he'd been singled out. The Twitter rant began after he'd finished his first round at the WGC-Mexico Championship with an even par 71. Molinari joins a long list of pros who've gotten upset about the PGA Tour's haphazard enforcement of rules around slow play, with some asserting that more famous players are less likely to be slapped with a warning or penalty.
You can expect to see players getting abnormal length on the course this week in Mexico City. Thanks to the altitude (Club de Golf Chapultepec is 7,800 feet above sea level), the game's biggest hitters are likely to achieve even more impressive numbers than they normally do. Last year, Dustin Johnson won this event last year, shooting 14 under to beat Tommy Fleetwood and Jon Rahm.
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".
