The controversy that overtook the final round of the ANA Inspiration took a new twist Sunday. So Yeon Ryu won the LPGA major played at Mission Hills Country Club in April after a dizzying turn of events produced four penalty strokes against Lexi Thompson. While there were those who complained that Ryu’s victory didn’t feel legitimate because of the nature of the next-day penalties against Thompson, it was Ryu who officially earned the title for her first win in nearly three years.
Three times in the last week the question came to our offices, once by phone call and twice by e-mail. What is the next desert golf course that will close? Note the position from which the question was posed. Not “Do you think more desert courses will close?” or “Is it possible that more desert golf courses will close?” Just “What is the next desert golf course that will close?” The question assumes the certainty of more closures.
Charlie Reiter admits there are mornings when the alarm goes off and he’d like to just hit the snooze button and leave his golf clubs untouched. “Every day that happens,” Reiter laughed. “But I just kind of wake up. That’s kind of what I do.”Reiter, who just finished his junior year at Palm Desert High School, has good reason for rising each morning to either play a tournament or practice, even in the summer.
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".
