I work at home, and I like to have the television on low volume in the background. And when I get tired of the hissing contests on cable news, the best thing about the holidays is Golf Channel’s rebroadcasts of final rounds of PGA Tour events. It’s perfectly gentle white noise. But the other afternoon, I perked up when I heard from CBS that Ollie Schniederjans was hitting a pitching wedge from 180 yards on the par-3 17th at Harbour Town during the final round of the RBC Heritage. A pitching wedge?
The industry leader in making grips for golf clubs is about to swing closer to the people who use its products. Golf Pride broke ground in December on a new headquarters at one of the most well-known courses at Pinehurst Resort. Golf Pride is relocating its current offices in Southern Pines and nearby Aberdeen a few miles down the road near Pinehurst No. 8, known as Centennial Course.
More than anything, it looks remarkably like the professional game has entered a new era, a time of its own that doesn’t depend on the blurry past or uncertain future. All of the pieces are in place to focus on a group of players who no longer are cursed with unlimited potential but now are the game’s established stars, even though many are only in their 20s. What we have to look forward to in 2018 is competition the likes of which we haven’t seen since before most of these players were born.
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".
