So basically what I'm getting from everyone's responses here is that I should be doing this...? Just walking forward a step past my lie outside the circle and putting from there? If so, I'm going to start working on that because it looks pretty effective.
How can you tell? The disc is blocking the view. It actually looks like you can see a sliver of daylight between the disc and his hand, but the camera angle is still crap. Certainly not enough to say unequivocally. You must have amazing vision.

Absolutely blows my mind that any players, let alone top quality players, feel the need to step/jump putt from 10.01 meters.
I can't even see the need to step/jump putt inside 20 meters...

You're friends with Paul. Your vision is likely (and understandably) a little skewed in this case.

That's technically a foot fault, but if it can't be called, then I'm going to start doing it, except I'm going to try learning it by stepping forward with my other foot (right foot) so that it ends in my natural putting stance.

Agreed, but the evidence presented isn't clear enough to make a definitive call.

Also, I know from doing it myself, that if your foot hits the ground prior to release, the disc will come out like a wounded duck. It would completely negate any advantage.

I'm sure if you practice it enough you can get it to work...

Default The disc never lies

That's why he missed that putt. Really poor footwork. Looks like a violation to me.

Go for it, but...

Exactly. Once that step foot hits the ground, the weight transfer is complete and you're taking your legs completely out of the throw.

Acting like he's lighting up every tournament with his putt lol.

"Roc vs Buzzz" is soooo yesteryear, "Step vs No-Step" is all the rage these days!
