Putt jump, putt jump, putt jump. Everyone is arguing about something that is inherently illegal by the rules as they stand.

How about we pretend that we don't have high speed cameras and look at the intent of a jump putt. People are not currently attempting to make flying leap putts. The idea is to use momentum to propel the disc, not get 2' closer on a 40' putt.

I don't jump putt btw

I was looking for the video...but found this instead.

http://schoolofdiscgolf.com/2012/07/...-your-score-2/

for those that feel this shouldn't be discussed...about 30-40% of respondents are FOR the proposal, the remaining are against. I'm also seeing similar thoughts on the pDGA board, so regardless if YOU feel this isn't an issue...there is a lot of disagreement on if jump putting should be legal or not.

here is a better look at feldberg's walk through:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNM6f...ailpage#t=602s

at least the walk through is more refined than the pseudo-epileptic jump i see in vast majority of "jump putts"

i dont jump putt. i think it is ridiculous and see more missed than made (especially in the lower player ratings) and they can often leave a huge comeback putt as well To each their own, though.

I stared using the walk through putt the first time I saw video of Feldberg doing it and it was very easy for me to learn and made those shots from outside the circle much easier for me. Everyone tells me that it is clearly legal, and seeing me make some of those shots has made others in my area start doing it.

in the rule book under General:

(1) When a group cannot reach a majority decision regarding a ruling, the benefit of the doubt
shall be given to the thrower.

To hard to tell that split second so give the player the benefit of the doubt,

i can make or splash the basket on 9/10 of putts if i can jump within 30 feet. no way this will ever happen. to many people wpid walk putt or this would favor the lanky mega long armed freak kids who excel at the sport early due to longer reach.
