Traden Karch wasn't necessarily the best player on the team, but the kid had a nose for clutch moments. Like his chip-in on the last hole to beat the team from Austin. Or the 40-foot bomb against Little Rock.
The trip began with a crisis, or what felt like a crisis at the time. When you end up crash landing in a river, these are the sort of definitions that tend to change. The day was Jan. 15, 2009, and for six golfers from Chicopee, Mass., an early wrinkle surfaced when their flight to Myrtle Beach was abruptly canceled.
Arnold Palmer was known for his letters. Among the countless ways The King made a personal connection with so many was his dutiful correspondence, which regularly included congratulatory notes to winners of golf tournaments around the globe. One of the final such letters Arnie sent appears to be this note shared by U.S.
When Bobby Jones uttered the famous phrase "He plays a game with which I am not familiar," he was speaking about Jack Nicklaus. But anyone who has been to a long-drive would instantly agree that Jones' comments are just as applicable.
If the golf world feels spurned by Tiger Woods' teased return, one has to imagine that feeling is magnified for those associated with the Safeway Open. Johnny Miller is a partner at Silverado Country Club, host of this week's season-opening event. Speaking on Thursday's telecast, the NBC analyst certainly sounded like a jilted lover.
Is thinking you're going to play bad an acceptable reason for withdrawing from an athletic competition? Though Tiger Woods has ceased to be a role model in life, he's still very much one in sport, and so the likely future Ryder Cup captain's turnabout at the Safeway Open three days after signing up warrants this specific ethical scrutiny.
Maybe there's just no use talking to PGA Tour players about pressure. Their skills exist on an entirely different plateau, and their weekly exposure to seven-figure paychecks and audiences has inured them from experiencing anything like what we mortals feel teeing it up in a club championship.
As personally significant as Bryson DeChambeau's win in Sunday's DAP Championship in the Web.com Tour Finals was for his status as a card-carrying member of the PGA Tour for the 2016-17 season, it might also have greater implications for his theories on equipment and how they might change the game: The 22-year-old's win is believed to be the first time any player in PGA Tour history has won a tournament using a set of irons all the same length.
The internet is filled with adorable videos of youngsters playing golf. Just last week we pointed out one in which a toddler worked on his swing with every household item imaginable. But this one might just be our favorite of the bunch because of its instructional value.
The Dorset Field Club in southern Vermont was a nine-hole course that became a full 18 the year I shipped off to college, 2000, which I thought was especially poor timing. Growing up my family belonged, and I knew it as the place that made the incredible demand everyone wear a collared shirt.
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
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".
