Does “made cut, did not finish” also count as a “missed cut?”


According the Italy 1990 FIFA World Cup technical report,

An assist point can be awarded to a player when he/she:

Makes the last pass to the eventual goalscorer Makes a penultimate pass that decisively influenced the play leading up to the goal Attempts a shot on net which rebounds, allowing the goalscorer to successfully score Is fouled (in the attacking half), and the kicktaker scores directly from the kick (unless he/she is taking the free kick themselves)

An assist point cannot be rewarded for :

Solo efforts (e.g. dribbling runs) A goal scored as the result of a mistake of the defending team

An update to the definition of an assist was provided in the Mexico 1986 World Cup technical report:

In order to get an assist for the goalscorer taking advantage of a shot's rebound, the assister's shot must be on target. Up to two people may receive assist points if their passes were decisive and/or significant

Yes; I cut them out with my scissors, and paint the faces and some of the costumes.

My days in the woods were not very long ones; yet I usually carried my dinner of bread and butter, and read the newspaper in which it was wrapped, at noon, sitting amid the green pine boughs which I had cut off, and to my bread was imparted some of their fragrance, for my hands were covered with a thick coat of pitch.

And so, if the railroad reached round the world, I think that I should keep ahead of you; and as for seeing the country and getting experience of that kind, I should have to cut your acquaintance altogether.

A jump cut is is an abrupt transition, typically in a sequential clip that makes the subject appear to jump from one spot to the other, without continuity.

This can happen when two sequential shots of the same subject in the same scene are cut together from camera positions that vary only slightly. Jump cuts also occur when cutting between two sections of footage shot from the same exact camera angle, for example in an interview.

Jump cuts can be jarring. They draw attention to the process of filmmaking and editing, which can take the audience out of the story, so traditionally they are viewed as something to be covered up. However, it's also because jump cuts draw attention to what is otherwise supposed to go un-noticed that they can be used in strategic and creative ways. Watch the following short tutorial for a visual representation of the basics, and then we'll jump to the specifics!

DO for actions; MAKE for creating

Do you know the difference between DO and MAKE?

These two words can be confusing, but I’ll teach you the difference – and teach you 60 common collocations with example sentences to help you!

Basic Difference between DO and MAKE

Use DO for actions, obligations, and repetitive tasks. Use MAKE for creating or producing something, and for actions you choose to do. DO generally refers to the action itself, and MAKE usually refers to the result. For example, if you “make breakfast,” the result is an omelet! If you “make a suggestion,” you have created a recommendation.

Common English Collocations with DO


do the housework
After I got home from the office, I was too tired to do the housework. do the laundry
I really need to do the laundry – I don’t have any clean clothes left! do the dishes
I’ll make dinner if you do the dishes afterwards.

Main verbs (except the verb "be") have 3, 4 or 5 forms. The verb "be" has 8 forms. In the table below, the # column shows the actual number of forms for the given verb.

We use these forms to make all the tenses and other verb structures, in all moods, aspects and voices.

In the above examples:

cut has 3 forms: cut, cutting, cuts work has 4 forms: work, worked, working, works sing has 5 forms: sing, sang, sung, singing, sings be has 8 forms: be, was, were, been, being, am, is, are

Note that in dictionaries the headword for any given verb entry is always in the base form.


There are two possibilities for the infinitive:

base form (the "bare infinitive") to + base form (the "to-infinitive")

For example,



to sing

are both infinitives. As they are identical in form to the base form, and "to" is not part of the verb, we do not list the infinitive as a separate form.

Note that the "to" is NOT a...

Thank you Neha Sinha for your A2A.

Many others have answered the question well, particularly Yugan Talovich. Let me see if I can add anything or simplify anything.

I missed you. Simple past tense. I am speaking about the past, nothing about the present. If you are a non-native speaker, this tense is good enough to be understood.

I missed you yesterday. Where were you?

I missed you last week at dance class when you were sick. I almost called you.

I missed you while you were away visiting family. I was afraid the storms here would keep you there.

I have missed you. Present Perfect (have +past particple). I am speaking about something in the past and into the present.

I have missed our daily chats. I am so glad you are back in town. (1st sentence is about the past, and 2nd sentence is about the present.)

I have missed you while you were sick. I can see you are healing. (Same as above)

“The reason for writing is very clear in this letter but it is not clear who the letter is to. The writer gives information to cover all three bullet points, but only one is well extended, and the whole response is underlenght at 135 words, so it loses marks for this.

The information is organised and it is easy to follow the message. A range of linkers is used across the answer and they are generally accurate, but in some places, especially the first paragraph, sentences are not well-linked.

The range of vocabulary is sufficient for the task and there are some quite precise expressions. There are no errors in word form, but some very basic spelling errors occur. In terms of grammar, the range is rather limited with many very short sentences and few complex structures. Grammar is generally well-controlled, however, with only a few minor errors and occasional inappropriate ...

This is a great song for teaching jobs and the structure “What do you do?”. The jobs in this lesson are familiar to kids of all ages, so this can be taught to even young kids.

Teach jobs vocab. Before class, print off the jobs flashcards for the jobs in the song (farmer, bus driver, doctor, teacher, dentist, police officer, chef, hair dresser, nurse, soldier, fire fighter, student). If your students are older and can handle more vocab feel free to add more jobs.

NOTE: You’ll notice that one of the jobs is “student”. Although not technically a job, it is perfectly appropriate to answer the question “What do you do?” with “I’m a student”.

Now you are going to do actions for each job and your students will have to guess what job it is.

Start by looking at the first flashcard (don’t show anyone) and do one of the below actions. Perhaps start with an easy one, like hairdresser, chef or bus driver. Encourage everyone to shout out their guesses – at this stage it is...

If you were confused as to why Tiger Woods played in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open on Saturday, but not in Sunday's final round, here's why:

For the first time in his career, Woods was a victim of the PGA Tour's "MDF" or "made cut, did not finish" rule.

In 2008, the PGA Tour instituted a rule known as, "Rule 78." Basically, the top 70 players and ties made the 36-hole cut. That is until the rule change in 2008, where the top 70 and ties made the cut unless that number was higher than 78 players (to this day, that only includes regular PGA Tour events and does not include majors, World Golf Championships or other short-field events).

If the number of players making the 36-hole cut was higher than 78, then the cut was made with the next bunch of players closest to 70. The players who were among the top-70 ties were then sent packing for the weekend with the designation "MDF."

Players were unhappy with the new rule and -- one month...

Tiger Woods has won at Torrey Pines a record eight times, but this week wasn't his week.

SAN DIEGO – Starting on the back nine in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open on Saturday and on the edge of contention, Tiger Woods arrived at the 18th tee at 2-under par and seven shots behind the leaders. He pumped a 300-yard drive into the middle of the fairway and was just 254 yards from the green at the par-5.

One solid shot and one or two putts later he would be back in the mix.

Thirty minutes later he was out of contention.

Ninety minutes later he was gone.

VIDEO: Watch live coverage of the Farmers Insurance Open

In a shocking result in his season debut, the world's No. 1 player and defending champion made two double-bogeys in a row, then made five consecutive bogeys en route to a 7-over-par 79 that sent him eastward back to his Florida home.

Woods, who shot 72-71 to make the cut by one shot, finished at 6-over par -- with a 42...

MDF means "Made cut, Did not Finish", which is the PGA Tour's way of keeping the field smaller in some tournaments. Here's an example from the 2008 Sony Open:

If you happened to come across the designation "MDF" well down the list of names through 36 holes of the Sony Open over the weekend, don't feel bad for not knowing what it meant.

Many of the PGA Tour players affected didn't, either.

The letters stand for "made [cut] didn't finish" and it altered the weekend plans of 18 players in the Sony field who were given credit for making the 36-hole cut, received FedEx Cup points and were paid.

They were the victims of a new PGA Tour rule in 2008 designed to keep field sizes manageable.

Regular PGA Tour events, which typically start with fields of 132, 144 or 156 players, have long had a 36-hole cut with the top 70 players and ties advancing to the final two rounds.

But in November, in an effort to keep field sizes smaller, the PGA Tour Policy Board...

"MDF" is an acronym that sometimes appears next to a golfer's name on PGA Tour leaderboards seen in print or online. Here's what it means:

Short answer: "MDF" stands for "made cut/did not finish." Longer explanation: Everyone knows what "MC" means when it appears next to a golfer's name in tournament scores; "MC" means "missed cut." But the "MC" acronym has been around for a long time. Beginning in 2008, a new acronym started showing up in golf scores: MDF. And what does "MDF" stand for? MDF, when it appears in golf scores, means "made the cut but did not finish the tournament." That golfer made the 36-hole cut, but missed the 54-hole cut.

Let's go deeper, including explaining when and why a second, 54-hole cut started showing up on the PGA Tour.

Why Would a Golfer Not Finish a Tournament If He Made the Cut?

Today, at a handful of tournaments on the PGA Tour each year, there are actually two cuts:...

MDF in golf means that the player made the cut but didn’t finish. Often times, there will be too many golfers who make the cut due to there being a lot of players who have the same score on the cut line. It creates a situation where there will be another cut after the third round. The players who are cut after the third round get a MDF next to their name. In other words, they made the first cut, but didn’t do enough in the third round to make the next cut. How many players are cut after the third round, if any, changes each week. There is NOT always a second cut after the third round. Since the top 69 scores make the cut, there may be more than 69 players who make the cut because there could be a tie for 69th. Say there 79 total players who make the cut because 10 players tied for 69th. Well then, all that happens is the 10 lowest scorers after the third round are cut in order to cut the field down to a reasonable number where it belongs. The official rules state that "If more than 78...

It’s only apropos that 2016 was the year of the monkey. In our bookend Cut Line we applaud the U.S. Ryder Cup team for getting the monkey off their backs at Hazeltine National, and arraign the USGA for what could best be described as rules monkey business.

Made Cut

Long live The King. Rory McIlroy had just put the finishing touches on an $11.5 million payday at the Tour Championship in September when news of Arnold Palmer’s death surfaced.

Initially stunned by the news, McIlroy was told by a PGA Tour media official he could wait to comment, but the Northern Irishman shook his head emphatically.

There was no need to wait.

“No, no. Look, Arnie put the game on the map. I don’t think any other sports person in any other sport did for their profession what Arnie did for our game,” the emotional FedEx Cup champion insisted. “I wouldn’t be here playing for this ridiculous amount of money without him and I was just fortunate to spend some time with...
