I'm definitely gonna seek out Chuck and others' input/review if we do a full illustrated rulebook. (It's 2012, why hasn't the PDGA made this?)
Thanks. Appreciate the comment. That comment makes sense...but obviously some had interpreted that chart beyond its scope already. Thanks for the clarification that wasn't how it was intended.

Sorry if I was harsh, I do that. The illustrated rules is something I really wanna do correctly and comprehensively, and that's part of why I stopped doing these bite-sized Rules Tips.

Thank you. I get crap for this a lot.

Here are some more helpful illustrations from dgcr days of yore:

Except the foot prints should be replaced by shoe prints in those diagrams.

Maybe those are Vibram Fivefingers prints.

The only problem with those, otherwise correct diagrams, is that the same people who did not know this already will also be the ones that will see this and think "10 inches"!

At the 10 meters its 2 inches or so. If it was done to scale with 10 meters and 1m wide stance, the extra room would seem negliable.

Which is why I always say to people, when explaining it: "Thats the way it is, but go by the perpendicular line, unless circumstances absolutely forces you to utilize it. Don't be the ******* who forces your fellow players to wonder if the should call it every time you putt."

Those graphics should also show the foot "behind" the disc but not on the LOP (illegal). That's a very common infraction.

And while you're at it, it should show a straddle putt with feet on both sides of the LOP and behind the perpendicular line, but neither foot on the LOP (illegal).
