The RBC Canadian Open returned to Glen Abbey for the 29th time this week, but the question is, how many more pro golf tournaments will grace its fairways? Glen Abbey, located in Oakville, Ont., and the regular home of the Canadian Open since the mid-1970s, is under threat of being developed by owner Clublink Corp, run by real estate mogul Rai Sahi.
The RBC Canadian Open has long benefited from players affiliated with — you guessed it — RBC. The bank, which sponsors the tournament and a handful of PGA Tour pros, usually engages those players to show up in Canada. That’s the case this year — but that’s not all. The World No. 1 golfer, Dustin Johnson, is also in the field, and is clearly one to watch this week. Dustin Johnson — The best golfer in the world currently.
Austin Connelly isn’t a golfer most Canadians are familiar with. But he’s near the top of the leaderboard at the British Open, a breakthrough performance for the part-time Canadian with Texas roots and Maritime heritage. At age 20, and with limited status on the European Tour, the golfer’s success at Royal Birkdale has many asking an obvious question: who the heck is Austin Connelly? The European Tour’s website has a succinct description: Slight Canadian with a much-heralded amateur career.
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".
