THE golfing schedule these days is so packed, it would make the appointment books of some of the great socialites look as empty as Old Mother Hubbard’s pantry. In this chock-a-block calendar, you’ve got to get your oar in early so when news filtered through recently that the US PGA Championship, which has traditionally been the last major of the men’s season, was moving to May as of 2019, you could just about hear the pages of the diary being frantically leafed through.
The lady is not for turning. Catriona Matthew showed all her class and qualities during her ninth appearance in the Solheim Cup but the Scottish veteran has maintained that it will still be her swansong in the transatlantic tussle. Team Europe may have lost by a 16 ½ - 11 ½ margin to the USA but the 47-year-old Matthew went out in style as she chalked up a hard earned singles victory over Stacy Lewis on the final green to rack up her third point from four outings over the three days in Des Moines.
The European Tour together with the LPGA Tour could be set to ride to the rescue of the struggling Ladies European Tour (LET). Speaking to the Golf Channel at this weekend’s Solheim Cup, Mike Whan, the commissioner of the LPGA Tour, stated that talks are already underway with a view to assisting the ailing European women’s circuit.
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".
