After seven straight first-time major winners, the 146th Open Championships seems due to break the streak. The breakthroughs made by Sergio Garcia, Dustin Johnson and Henrik Stenson have been career-changing and career-defining, but it's about time we get Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy going head-to-head on Sunday with a major championship on the line. At Royal Birkdale, it looks like we might have a chance to see it after both players posted two of the best rounds of the day.
The Open Championship is going to be a tremendous event, but for those of us located in the United States, it can be a bit difficult to catch all the action from across the pond as we would a stateside major. That's why we at CBS Sports are here to help. Exciting action will be aplenty Thursday through Sunday from Royal Birkdale, and you can catch it all both on your television and streaming live online whenever you wake up.
There are just 18 holes between history as the three Americans at the top of the leaderboard in the 146th Open Championship look to go wire-to-wire and sweep the first three spots of 2017's third major. Jordan Spieth is looking to become the second golfer to win three majors -- and complete three stages of the Grand Slam -- before the age of 24. Matt Kuchar is hoping to win his first major, a goal he's chased throughout his 17-year career.
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".
