OAKMONT, Pa. — Facial hair has been wildly embraced in these parts the past few months, primarily because the Pittsburgh Penguins rode their playoff beards all the way to the Stanley Cup title one week ago. Now, a golfer who looks like he’d fit right in a postseason hockey locker room is looking to raise a trophy of his own. Chances are, being from Ireland, Shane Lowry hasn’t spent much time on skates.
OAKMONT, Pa. — A random spectator walking outside the ropes on Thursday afternoon at Oakmont Country Club — he appeared to be in the minority, since scores of fans were strolling down the middle of the 18th fairway — was overheard talking on his cellphone, exaggerating but summing up the feeling during the first round of the 116th US Open. “We’re in our 50th rain delay of the day,” he said.
OAKMONT, Pa. — To be kind, Phil Mickelson has a checkered history at the US Open, with blown leads and a record six runner-up finishes. He would be lying if he said it hasn’t worn on him, especially now, when a win in the national championship is the only thing keeping him from achieving the career grand slam. “Well, I could b.s. you and tell you I don’t think about it,” Mickelson said Wednesday, on the eve of the 116th US Open at Oakmont Country Club. “I think about it all the time.
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".
