Golfers of all abilities struggle with how to hit driver. But it doesn't have to be that way. From what I've seen, there are three main issues people have off the tee: they get nervous, they hit a big slice or they just hit it all over the place. In this article, I break down each of these problems to give you the tools to handle your nerves, your slice, or your inconsistency. Follow my tips and you'll be hitting driver with some confidence in no time.
The thing about bunker shots is, most golfers don’t have a clear concept for what they’re trying to do. They’ve heard the old advice: “play the ball forward” or “make a full backswing” or “keep turning through.” But those are just pieces of the technique. Golfers often don’t know what the club needs to do through the sand—an overall feel for the shot. Here’s a great tip from Golf Digest Best Young Teacher Mario Guerra : Splash the sand onto the bank of the green.
We’ve all been cornered by a fellow golfer who decides to launch into a shot-by-shot postmortem of his last round, as if you’re dying to know just what goes into a 93. “I hit the fairway on 1, missed the green right, bad lie over there, caught it a touch thin, should’ve grabbed my lob. On No. 2 . . .” These monologues can be painful to endure—and impossible to escape.
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".
