It’s a brilliant par 3 set in the sand dunes on an Open Championship venue. Again, it’s just under 200 yards. You have to avoid the bunkers, which are so clever, they’re really deep and they guard the front left and front right. When the pin position is at the back, you don’t ever really want to take on. It’s all about wind again. The best view of that hole is actually from up on the sand dunes or left hand side of the tee. It’s in the middle of a moonscape. The whole golf course is amazing.
If the tees are no longer gender-specific then competitions could be run to include both men and women on a more level playing field. If the competition is played to a Stableford format, men and women could play against their own cards off the same tees and the test should be comparable for all. There would be more of an issue in Medal play, where women’s net scores wouldn’t be as low as the men’s as they play to a higher par and higher SSS.
The last time The Open Championship was staged at Royal Troon, little-known Todd Hamilton outdueled Ernie Els to secure his first and only Major victory. It was undoubtedly a moment of glory, but what has he achieved since then? In the last 12 years, he’s registered just three top 10s on the PGA Tour. He only earned $20,898 last year.
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".
