Putting rules question

My friend insists that it is legal to have part of his foot past the back edge of his marker disc while putting (he will have his heel behind the back edge while the rest of his foot is to the side), I say no way. Who is right?

Gotta be behind the marker after the disc leaves your hand is what I thought.

He's standing beside his mini? That's illegal. I originally thought you meant he had his foot sideways behind the mini, in which case it depends, if his foot stays flat through the putt then it's legal. If he picks up his heel when he putts and is standing on his toe then it's illegal.

You have to have a supporting point on the line of play directly behind you lie when you release the disc, the rest of your points of contact can be wherever you want, provided they are not past your lie.

Actually, his heel is behind the mini, but the rest of his foot is beside it.

As long as he has a point of contact behind his marker and no part of his foot is forward of the marker he IS legal. If any part of his foot is closer to the basket then it is illegal.
A lot of players will use a backstep stance with the ball of their foot behind his marker to play around an obstacle.
