AT 42, Michael McDermott was trying to become the first player to repeat as BMW Philadelphia Amateur champion in more than two decades. And the third to win the title at least four times. Gregor Orlando, who's 16 years younger, is trying to win his first big tournament since the Pennsylvania Junior nearly a decade ago. But the Erie native has been a member of the host club, Flourtown's Philadelphia Cricket, for two years after moving here because of his job.
When Connecticut was still in the Big East, the Huskies played Villanova 59 times between 1981-2013. The Wildcats won 31 of those games. The last time they met was in the second round of the 2014 when UConn, which had become a member of the American Athletic Conference for football reasons, beat them 77-65 en route to an unexpected run to a national championship. On Thursday the schools announced that the rivalry will resume starting in the 2017-18 season.
Of the 143 guys who teed it up in Tuesday’s steamy two-round qualifier at the BMW Philadelphia Amateur Championship, 13 are members of the host club, Flourtown’s Philadelphia Cricket. John Brennan was among the baker’s dozen who figured to have at least some kind of edge. And he played like it. In the morning, he shot a 4-under-par 66 on the original Wissahickon course, now ranked fifth in Pennsylvania after its recent renovation.
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".
