Tom Irwin uses his Winter Golf Week Foghorn column to explain why getting out and playing in the colder months makes you one of life's winnersOur recent Twitter poll tells us that just 5% of you think that winter is the best time of year to play golf. It is when the game comes into its own, is presented properly and allows all of its virtues to come to the fore. Apart from winter doesn’t even exist in this country any more. You are as likely to get a poor day in June as you are in November.
The Foghorn, Tom Irwin, can’t quite decide. But, either way, he needs no encouragement to turn the clock back 20 years to a time when anything was possible“Show me a hero and I will write you a tragedy,” wrote F Scott Fitzgerald, apropos of nothing much, but the karma career of Tiger Woods may be what he had in mind. When he won the US Open on one leg in 2008 – TWO-THOUSAND AND EIGHT – it felt like he was literally hopping along to GOATdom. Nine years later and we are still waiting.
Two years to sort Brexit? We've just ranked England's 100 best golf courses in seven months. Get in a car and have it out, writes our Foghorn“These courses won’t rank themselves you know.” The oft-repeated reason I have given to my wife this year for disappearing on another extremely important trip to visit courses on the long-list for our upcoming England’s Top 100 Courses 2018 ranking feature.
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".
