Outside the circle you can throw the disc and after you release it completly you can move or fall over the marker.(You must have one foot in the ground until you release the disc completly).

Inside the circle you must have one foot in the ground until release and after release you must show full balance before lifting your feet towards the basket.(You can have one foot behind the marker and the other to the side and lift that one closer to the basket while releasing butt not closer the basket than the marker.(meaning you can fall to the side with one leg but you must have one foot behind the marker until fully balanced).

No, your lie determines whether you can jump putt. If the rear of your mini is inside the circle you are putting.

Check the Feldberg putting video for further clarification.

The Feldberg putting video also puts a better spin on the term "jump putt". Feldberg points out that a lot of people technically have foot faults when they jump putt because they're in the air when the disc is released. He suggested that the term be re-coined as a "putt jump" so that you finish as a jump or fall through, but you're 100% on the ground as the disc is released.

False. This isnt true outside the circle, more less in it.

Some part of your body has to be behind your lie at release, with not part touching in front. Outside the circle you can fall forward after those requirements are met, inside the circle you must show balance behind your mark, than you can move forward.

In my year of playing this sport I can honestly say that I have not seen a single player(AM, REC) execute a correct 'putt jump' they were ALL 'jump 'putts'.

From my discussions with people that have been playing MUCH longer than I they would guesitmate that 80-90% of people are doing it incorrect. If you feel that you HAVE TO Putt Jump then at LEAST be sure you have the timing to do it right...........

You know that you can jump on a jump putt and its still legal right? As long as you have a supporting point behind your lie and nothing is touching in front at release its legal. After the release you can run down the fairway doing cartwheels if you want, as long as you are not in the circle.

Not doubting you, but to say you have never seen a correct one, just made me think you were misunderstanding something or Wisconsin has some terrible disc golfers.

I'm in Wisconsin, too. And have seen more than a few players "inside the circle" jump putt. They spring forward off their front foot and release the disc with neither foot on the ground and land in front of their marker. No balance, no support point....I just scratch my head.

No...The post just before yours says it clear. You cannot move past the marker after you putt until you have control of both feet on the ground behind the mark.
