Alright, here's a disc golf nerd rule book question?? There are professional players who have developed a walking putt<i.e. a putt where from outside 10 meters the rear leg is extended forward of the marker disc, then the disc is released, making your rear foot your new plant foot as you lunge forward towards the basket, you appear to be "walking" toward your target. While the putt is deadly accurate from long distance and taking quite some skill to execute properly, I don't see how it's legal...here's what the PDGA rulebook says-
803.04 Stance, Subsequent to Teeing Off
A. When the disc is released, a player must:
(1) Have at least one supporting point that is in contact with the playing surface on the line
of play and within 30 centimeters directly behind the marker disc (except as specified in
803.04 E); and,
(2) have no supporting point contact with the marker disc or any object closer to the hole
than the rear edge of the marker disc; and,
(3) have all of his or her supporting points in-bounds.
B. Stepping past the marker disc is permitted after the disc is released, except when
putting within 10 meters.
C. Any throw from within 10 meters or less, as measured from the rear of the marker disc
to the base of the hole, is considered a putt. A follow-through after a putt that causes the
thrower to make any supporting point contact closer to the hole than the rear edge of the
marker disc constitutes a falling putt and is considered a stance violation . The player must demonstrate full
control of balance before advancing toward the hole.
It looks like in order to execute this putt correctly, you need to release before any point crosses the marker plain, and that's not how I sees it...I'm calling foot faults!!
