ORLANDO — The PGA Tour is sometimes described as a fishbowl and it is but it's also a high-end swap meet. Rory McIlory celebrated St. Patrick's Day on Saturday by getting himself in contention here at Bay Hill while playing with one of his favorite people, Ernie Els, from whom he recently bought a house. The house was already a showpiece — anybody who has been to Bear's Club in South Florida will tell you that — but now it will get only better, under the watchful eye of the young newlyweds.
ORLANDO — Midway through this Arnold Palmer Invitational — with the Masters coming next month and three more majors and the Ryder Cup in the five months after it — let’s take a breath here to see how good this golf year already is, and how good it could be. Exhibit A: Tiger Woods Tiger Woods, at 42, looks like he could win on the PGA Tour again, after five years in which he seldom played and did not win. Will it be this week? Likely not.
Public golf as a singleton on a course that is new to you is a crapshoot. You don’t know what the course will be like, how bad (always bad) the wait will be, and you certainly don’t know who you will be paired with. Still, we go, right? We’re optimists, we golfers. It’s in our tribal DNA. I called it a day (using loosely this work-whistle phrase) at about 4 p.m. on Wednesday — pro-am day at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard!
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
