In three weeks, all eyes will be on Des Moines, Iowa, as the United States Solheim Cup team attempts to defend its 2015 title in front of a home crowd. It's a lot of pressure to put on players, especially given Europe's too-little-too-late push in Germany two years ago, and Team USA captain Juli Inkster is just fine with that.
Who says you can't mix politics and golf? According to the Nevada Independent, LPGA star Natalie Gulbis is considering running for Congress in Nevada's third congressional district. She lives in Lake Las Vegas, Nevada, where Republican incumbent Jacky Rosen has indicated she plans to run for Senate and will vacate the seat. Gulbis, a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, met with Republicans this week in Washinton, D.C., to explore the idea.
We’re halfway through major season but nowhere near finished with excellent regular golf on the PGA Tour. The Tour heads to TPC River Highlands this week for the 2017 Travelers Championship, and it’s a field you won’t want to miss. Big names are filling out the roster this year, including Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day. McIlroy and Day will look to rebound from missed cuts at the 2017 U.S. Open, while Spieth hopes to build on a strong Sunday round at Erin Hills.
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".
