I'd love to see documentation of "jump putts" being illegal and the PDGA deciding to allow it. Looking at the Rules History document
on the PDGA website, it appears stepping through after releasing the disc has always been allowed by rule. Also, having to have contact with the lie at release has also always been on the books. So, properly executed jump putts and walking putts (i.e. released while in contact with the lie, no contact in front until after release) have always
been legal by PDGA rule.
If you were playing by some other set of (local) rules until a point where the PDGA rules were adopted in your circles, then I guess you might have a point. But if we're only talking PDGA rules, I don't think you know what you're talking about.
Of course, I hardly expect a response. Kinda wish I hadn't gotten sucked into posting even this.
