Rickie Fowler needed Butch Harmon to realise his potential. Next up: a major and World No. 1. The pair sat down with NCG to discuss the game planYou might remember the Open Championship of 2013, when Phil Mickelson finished with a stunning flourish at Muirfield to win the Claret Jug. You probably won’t recall Rickie Fowler’s performance that week. His game spun off in the opposite direction. Fowler, 24 at the time, shot 78-76 at Muirfield – 12 over par – to miss the cut by four.
Bernhard Langer returns to Royal Porthcawl in southern Wales this week for the Senior Open presented by Rolex, where he won by a record 13 strokes three years ago. At the age of 59, Germany’s Langer remains the man to beat in senior golf and he leads the Schwab Cup standings on the PGA Tour Champions by a massive margin.
Organiser of The Open, the R&A, reports that record crowds at Royal Birkdale this week have reached 235,000, which is the highest figure ever for an Open held outside of St Andrews. This week’s mark is the third highest ever, falling shy of the St Andrews Opens of 2000 (239,000) and 2015 (237,000). The 2017 Open has set a new best for Opens held in England, with the previous mark set in 2006, when the championship returned to Royal Liverpool to end a hiatus of 39 years.
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".
