Earlier today, the PGA Tour announced that Stephen Curry will tee it up in the Ellie Mae Classic, a second-tier Web.com Tour event just outside the Bay Area in early August. It’s totally fine and normal for professional athletes and celebrities outside golf to take part in professional golf events — the Bob Hope Classic and Pebble Beach events heave been built on such for years. But this is different. Rather than competing in some exhibition pro-am, Curry will actually be in the actual field.
Maybe you can call the Travelers Championship the PGA Tour’s sixth major? OK, OK, we’re kidding. Just days after Brooks Koepka took home his first major championship at the U.S. Open at Erin Hills, we’ll have the stars out once again when the Travelers Championship gets underway from TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn. this week.
It’s easiest to spot by just asking a native to pronounce the name of their hometown. You’ll hear it, even in the ex-pats. It’s an inescapable hybrid of midwestern speech patterns plus southern twang, adequately representative of the not-quite-midwestern, not-quite southern purgatory in which the city itself is stuck. If you’ll listen closely, Justin Thomas still has it. Maybe barely, but it’s there — takes a trained ear perhaps to spot it.
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".
