Koling Putting @ Maple Hills..

I was watching the 3rd round at Maple Hills and when Koling putts he has a distinct sideways move with his leg and body..

Check out 22:48 here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqcflyOKm40

Is this not considering a putting or foot fault..

Just curios..

Sideways is fine as long as he's not making any contact with the playing surface forward of his lie until after he demonstrates balance.

I actually do this too. So....It's just a stance (sometimes a straddle) That when you lift with your back left to thrust the putt forward you of course come down afterwards, and sometimes you step out a little more to gain balance.

Like I said. I do this too. I did notice it and thought "Oh good, It's not just me"

Koling's started putting like Ricky ... and Ricky's gone to more of inline stance like Koling used to do.

If both feet remain behind your lie its 100% legal. However, it does seem like one of the rules that the try hards would try and use to call people out (illegitimately)
