While the 24 tour pros braved the elements during the QBE Shootout that just wrapped up Sunday, they were at least playing golf. Many of the 300 volunteers for the PGA Tour event may not have been on the golf course for four to five hours, but they also had to deal with a postal carrier's array of weather -- hot and humid during the week, then wind on Friday, rain, wind and chilly temperatures on Saturday, and wind and 40-degree temperatures on Sunday.
The Americans beat the Europeans -- fittingly shutting the door with an eagle -- to win the QBE Shootout on Sunday. In chilly, windy conditions -- it was in the 40s when play started -- Steve Stricker and Sean O'Hair beat out Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell and Ireland's Shane Lowry down the stretch at Tiburón Golf Club at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort. "I think it definitely gives me a little bit of confidence," said O'Hair, who hasn't won on tour since 2011.
Team Lexi No. 2 worked out quite nicley for the LPGA Tour star at the QBE Shootout. Lexi Thompson and Tony Finau tied for fourth following a 6-under 66 to finish 21 under at Tiburón Golf Club at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort on Sunday. Thompson, only the second woman ever to play in the Shootout and the first to do so twice, had tied for 11th in the 12-team field last year when she played with Bryson DeChambeau.
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".
