When the 7.40am three-ball went off from the hidden-away 10th tee in the opening round of the 2018 Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, presented by EGA, the grass was damp with dew and the air rent with machismo. Match 13 was not so much the tournament’s marquee group as it was The Alpha Group. Teeing it up first was the world No 1, Dustin Johnson, a golfing power turbine who hit one drive last summer 439 yards. Four-hundred and thirty-nine yards. In one go.
When Justin Rose packed away his clubs for his annual winter break in December, he might have needed to handle them with oven gloves, so toasty had they been lately. The Englishman had been riding the most scalding of hot streaks, a run that saw him win three times, and not finish outside of the top 10 once, in the course of 10 tournaments leading up to the end of 2017.
3,000,000 – Dollars. Over the four-day championship, 126 players will compete for a total prize purse of $3m (Dh11.02m) – an increase of $300,000 from previous years. 16 – Under-par. Dustin Johnson’s performance on his debut at The National Course last year. It was good enough for tied-second, a shot behind the winner Tommy Fleetwood. 7,600 – Yards, the championship length of The National Course.
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".
