Every player should be required to carry a rulebook ........... actually I'll take it one step further, every player should be required to take the officials test; teaching them how to use the damn thing. But at the very least everyone should have to have one on them.

I think my rule book is outdated abit my #s didn't match the pdga's webpg. I also putt on one foot and see it as a courtesy to plant booth feet behind my marker before advancing . I would call a violation on myself if I were aware of it and always want to be called if & when I do, because without the rules the playing field would not be even and I think they really let you know where you stand.

I thought KVN was joking when he called it. I kinda gave him a laugh because I didnt think it was a foot fault. Idk. Like I said if I NEED to bring my foot back down before I go get my disc I will. I just dont see the reason behind it. Like Z said I dont strattle putt my only "supporting point" is my right foot.

I have always putt this way and this was the first time I have ever been called on it. I play over 18 tournys a year, and many many more leauge and rec rounds.

Its in the past I wont laugh next time you call me out KVN lol. My wizard may not be as forgiving :lol:

I think the key really is continuous motion, as pork said, but I disagree that you need to put your other foot down as some kind of courtesy. A lot of people end up with one foot in the air. It's easy to see the difference between stopping and following through if you just stop for a second.

True...

It may be a milisecond before...but I push off before I release and lift my back leg off the ground...I agree though...that it would be far simpler to just set my leg back down behind my marker before advancing towards the basket to alleviate any confusion...

I also...however...am in the minority in that I like to forget to pick my mini up at least once a round...after having gotten my disc...and enjoy running back from the next hole to retrieve it... :wink:

I hope your putt continues to improve as we will be playing for the upset this year @ the IA teamchmps. The unforgiving putt is what makes memorable rounds for me . I hope to get to DSM more and throw some more with you and Sarg, i'am sure you have alot of shots on every course to show us before the challenge this year.

When I said courtesy I meant " It is courteous to play by the rules " . I was not trying to push the rules because it was an icebowl but because of the side bet (not in it ) fair is fair. :?

So let me take a whack at that horse.

I have only been playing for only a year now, however there is the right way and there is all the other ways I see people playing.

And I think my favorite answer is "But I have always done it this way and no one every said anything". Such a lame excuse for not correcting the way you play when you find out your are not following the rules. And who are these dork's that keep letting you play that way?

I am sure everyone who reads this could beat me in a round of golf. That is just fine with me, because we are playing with different goals in mind. I getting my butt out of this chair and walking around and having a good time.

However I am one of those "assholes" that will call you on everything, not trying to be mean or screw up your game. I just want to play by the same set of rules. I do want everyone to have fun, and if the people in my group can learn to play the right way even better. I play nov/rec and so a lot of the people I play with don't know the rules. All they know is what there PRO friends teach them. So all you ADVANCED players out there should be teaching your newbie friends the right way the first time.

And just because I finish DFL does not mean I am not having fun or accomplishing my goals in life.

Oh and yes I do keep a rule book in my bag, thank you.

PDGA Rule
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.

Where does it say that you can't put your other foot down? As long as you demonstrate full control of balance before advancing.
If this means one foot up and bending over to grab your mini, or one foot up pausing and then stepping, or one foot up then doing a cart wheel your fine as long as you demonstrate balance.
Are you ready for the Challenge?

KVN have you read through this thread? If you play a round of disc with GW, wether its in DSM, Cedar Rapids, Franklin, Bowling Green, or in your back yard, you will see shots that you have never seen. You will see more putts made than you thought possible (with out the foot fault). And you will almost want to give up disc golf.
Probably the only good that comes out of winter, other than our great state wide Ice Bowls, is that Mr. Weaver does not get out on the course much. I don't know if it's the cold weather, the XBox360, off season strength training and conditioning, or what. Either way Grant's seasonal absence gives me a chance to rekindle my confidence and enjoyment for this great game we call disc golf.
NO!......Welp!?
